    Company Processes can limit progress, diversity in executive leadership is limited.

    I have been working at Daimler Trucks North America full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Flexibility, Defined Contribution Plan, Multi-location.

    Cons

    Have observed instances of political hostility, overt discrimination, retaliation, protection for management bad behavior, no protection for whistleblowers. Not a meritocracy. HR and Legal depts say they are aware but are unable to disclose *any* details of actions ... remedial, corrective, punitive, or otherwise.

    Great pay and benefits plus Mercedes Benz lease program.

    Cons

    High stress, long hours, weekends and antiquated facilities.

    Advice to Management

    Improve equipment so it's not a battle every day just to get the job done. Stop the open air meetings where managers and supervisors get chewed out on a microphone within ear shot of hourly employees.
