    Pros

    Great salary and benefits for employees

    Cons

    Upper management needs to trained or retrained on how to treat employees. They need to get a better understanding on how to speak to adults in a work place setting. The Supervisor and/or the Coordinators aren't always right.

    Advice to Management

    Bad management can lead to high turnovers which result in the loss of a lot of excellent employees

    I worked at Deutsche Post DHL full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The great thing about working for this company is the people I worked with the long hours and the great pay and benefits I loved it all. All but one thing

    Cons

    The management and the point system my child was sick and I had 3 or 4 points left I called them to use my emergency general purpose day and no one answered so I left a message on the call off line and no one called me from upper management to say hey something is not right and then I come in and boom I was fired no hey if you dont come in u will lose a point no nothing and I have 3 kids and a fiance that is a stay at home mom. I loved my job and i did my job great.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a different way to go about things. When someone is close to losing there job its really not cool to be in a situation like this. I'm sure they would want some one to understand if the same happened to them. It's not fair!!!!

    Pros

    Great company to work for to learn about the business

    Cons

    Bad advancement opportunity in the company. You will be stuck doing a meaningless job for years.

    Advice to Management

    Look at see which departments are carrying the company. I seen interns come in and in six months they are promoted while the supervisors who been there for years are stuck getting the short end of the stick.

    Pros

    Great company atmosphere, busy and challenging environment. Pay is very competitive and bonuses are paid in the Spring. Company has a focus and direction which they communicate to their employees.

    Cons

    Typically too busy to engage in industry events. Too busy in general to take your time handling your day to day tasks. Some people got promoted because how many hours they put in vs. whether they really belong in that position.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more time and funds to send employees to industry/training events.
