I have been working at DFS Group full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good exposure
Opportunity to work overseas
Great learning experience
Promote from within
Great benefits
Attractive bonus
Once you are being sent overseas, you are well taken care of by their "Expat" package that does not have an expiration date as for as I know.

Cons

Office politics (better to know which one to stay away from).
Lack of team work (watch your back)
Candidates/employees who are internationally mobile are highly preferred.
Talented employees with great performance are most likely going to stay at the same job level if they can't work in other countries due to family or other personal obligations.

Advice to Management

Keep the local employees as happy as you treat Expats.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good benefits package. Some great people to work with. They try to make it a fun environment to work in with lots of parties, luncheons, and activities.

    Cons

    Difficult to be promoted or move up unless you would like to relocate to another state or country. They seem to be doing quite a bit of cleaning house.
    Not enough people are hired to get the job done so people are pulled in every direction and forced to work long hours only being able to do what is urgent and not what is important.
    It is extremely political - Those who know how to schmooze, talk a good game, and toot their own horn are rewarded rather than people that are knowledgeable and genuinely hard workers

    Advice to Management

    Try to enforce what you have stated as the DFS mission statement and values - most importantly "Value Your People"
