"A great, multinational logistics company."
Pros:

  • There are a large number of development and training opportunities on offer.
  • There are many opportunities for advancement in the company.
  • DHL is flexible when it comes to hours and employees are trusted to work independently.
Cons: 
  • Graduates may be required to relocate for their role, which may not suit everyone.
  • As with many large organisations, graduates are likely to encounter a fair amount of bureaucracy.
  • London salaries are not increased to match the increased cost of living.
  • Some training programmes could benefit from a little more structure and transparency.
