    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    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.

    Really set out strong development plans and stick to them.

    Pros

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