DHL Employee Review

Weird management

A lot of useless reporting that needs to be done. A lot of conflicting messages that you need to make certain number of customer calls and visits but yet management sends tons of meeting invites in a week. Furthermore, you're expected to drink with the bosses.

Dear colleague, Thanks for getting in touch and sharing your thoughts as a Global Account Manager in Singapore with us.We expect our managers to serve as role models for employees across the group, not only motivating them but also demonstrating how their work helps the company achieve its goals.Collecting a lot of data can be useless and a waste of money, time, and resources if the data is not analyzed for progressive purposes. Only a few of these reports might capture the business leader’s attention. With regard to the reporting, it is somewhat difficult for us to judge from a distance what has not gone smoothly here and how we were able to get information at short notice.We regret that you had a negative experience with our company's management. Feel free to contact your human resources department and share your experiences or suggestions for improvement with them. Thank you for the terrific job you have done not only in the last days and weeks but throughout this crisis. Stay safe and stay healthy!Your DHL Team
