    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Daimler Financial Services full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good company culture, benefits and training opportunities. In Germany, you also get 'Gleitzeit', which means every minute of overtime you work is counted.

    Cons

    The leadership in China is not geared towards supporting people or developing them. Hard work is not rewarded, socialising is. Positional development is basically a lottery, and in some fields you'll basically top out here and won't get any support.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your people, own them, develop them, fight for them.

    I worked at Daimler Financial Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay for entry level. Some senior managers are very professional.

    Cons

    Most E4 become managers simply because they stay with the company long enough, without a decent degree or international exposure. If you are someone with a very good background in finance or want to develop a career in financial services industry/banking/insurance, stay away from it. Your managers won’t support you in obtaining professional certificates like CFA and FRM because they are not related with company business....

    Advice to Management

    No advice. The environment is hard to change until things really sour.
