    I have been working at Deutsche Post DHL full-time (More than 8 years)

    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.

    I have been working at Deutsche Post DHL part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    good benefits, some very nice people

    Cons

    not enough training, too much shift changing, too much messing up of paychecks

    Advice to Management

    management should never get cursed out by employees, supervisors do more work than the people under them.....

    Pros

    With imports/exports with 220+ countries, DHL offers great exposure to diversity in culture, people and global business; that exposure produces an incredibly wide network of colleagues and friends.

    Cons

    Although DPDHL has made a considerable effort in immersing US/American employees into that global exposure, a much greater effort is required to maintain DHL's position at the top of global supply chain & logistics providers.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to rotate most or all of US management at all levels with short, medium and long term stints abroad and to pair those rotations with extension training in global business. Also, provide all employees and their families with the opportunity to learn another language and use that language in a company sponsored exchange program. Unlocking DHL's value as a leader/advisor in global business has enormous potential for DPDHL's value.

    I worked at Deutsche Post DHL full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    During my time at DHL offered excellent benefits and opportunities for overtime were readily available.

    Minimum pay, no chance for advancement, management didn't know how to talk to people, treated like children and micro managed.

    Pros

    Challenging work; diverse work environment; opportunity work with and learn from experienced, bright professionals who really know their craft/industry.

    Cons

    If you are new to the industry and depending upon your role and the division you join, it could take some time and application to learn and appreciate the business. Once you do, you'll be okay.

    Pros

    Steady (small) paycheck, with employer-sponsored 401k

    Cons

    Little more than another piece of office equipment. Lots of lip service given to open communications; nothing implemented to actually foster that communication.

    Advice to Management

    Actually consider responses from Employee Opinion Survey, rather than merely checking off a box indicating you've completed the process for another year.

    Pros

    Great people to work in teams with. Very mature organization and that runs rather effectively. 401K benefits are great along with the yearly review process. Great facilities.

    Cons

    Little to no flexible work arrangements. Limited range in knowledge sharing and to some degree development. Global HQ is in Germany and many do not have opportunities working with larger initiatives as these remain in HQ.

    Advice to Management

    Really set out strong development plans and stick to them.

    Pros

    Excellent learning and bundle of opportunities at all levels and globally. Highly international.

    Cons

    Less compensation in support roles. In line roles, long working hours though. Frequent management changes.

    Advice to Management

    Group results should not affect business units. Management shouldn't change frequently.
