    Pros

    DHL is a huge company that has a ton of departments and potential opportunities.

    I have been working at Deutsche Post DHL full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They are committed to their customers and they believe in doing the right thing by them. As with any company they must balance this desire with the reality of staying viable in the market. They offer great opportunities for advancement, great learning and training opportunities and the culture is supportive of career advancement if the employee takes responsibility for it.

    Cons

    They are brutal in their human resource objectives and lack empathy in some cases. The market changes constantly and to stay viable senior management chooses strategies but tends not to consult with line managers or employees who may have valuable contributions. while they are specific about expectations they are not as open as they could be to creative ways of fulfilling them

    Advice to Management

    If you want to succeed, put employees first. DPDHL has three guiding principles: They aim to be the Employer of choice, the provider of choice and the investment of choice. Management should attend to the first principle more closely than they do. It is a good place to work, and there is great opportunity, but it seems clear that "investment" of choice is the most important principle and not all who contribute to it's success are awarded adequately.
