Too focused on diversity
Mgr (Former Employee) –  VariousOctober 9, 2018
They wanted more diversity (given the industry) and passed up on qualified candidates for promotion to chose diverse candidates that were not qualified. I saw this at least a handful of times.
Not great work/life balance as the company runs lean.
Fairly good cross-functional cooperation.
Pay and benefits are above average.
The culture is becoming more of a cutthroat environment at mgmt. levels, yet all leadership training stresses alignment. Due to the way job ratings are handled.
People work hard in general and are rewarded for that.
Pros
pay, benefits, growth opportunities

Great Place to work
PRODUCT MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORDecember 7, 2018
A company that truly values the work/life balance with great benefits and a culture that feeds into the growth of the employees. They invest in the continued learning and improving of the leadership which in turn flows to others in the company. A typical day was filled with challenges but stress was a rare occurrence. The most enjoyable part of the job was the culture and the people.
Pros
Dynamic environment, vast landscape

A Decent Employer
Project Manager, Business Systems Analyst III (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORJune 11, 2018
Daimler is a good stepping stone for an entry level IT professional. It is a large organization with a tall corporate structure. An IT employee can expect a team environment with regular AGILE meetings. Sprints can be challenging and the workflow varies from light to heavy depending on pressures passed down through management. The quality of your employment will depend on the culture of your department. If you have a good team with a solid manager, then you can expect a very pleasant experience.
Pros
Good benefits, two extra weeks off (July & December)
Cons
Management quality varies by project and department

Pay good for part time
Warehouse Technician (Former Employee) –  USAJuly 11, 2018
Had to lift 75lbs about 10 times for your pre employment physical. HR can be helpful and there can be no communication with something you need to know. Pay is good for part time but can only work so many hours a week and thought the year only given more hours during the summer months. A lot of drama with temps. Its day shift. Supervisor was just there to tell you to move faster and get upset if the line was stopped. Flexible schedule easy to change a day if you needed your regular scheduled day off. No benefits do to part time.
Pros
Gain share, hr, breaks, 4pm, flexible schedule
Cons
Temps, hr, 24 hours a week at the most

Material Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, NCNovember 12, 2018
Great benefits and pay. Site to site the environment is different, not a core structure to drive similarities. Workload is driven by economy, it is either feast or famine.

Pros
benefits, car lease program, discounts, days off

work life balance, leadership can be a barrier to moving forward

Great place to work, don't expect job security
Uptime Pro Application Support (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORApril 24, 2018
I loved working for this place, great work - home life balance. Decent compensation. However, since the majority of their employees are contractors, there is a high turn over rate. Some people come and go like it's a revolving door, which works for some people but not for most.
Pros
Close to several hiking trails and parks, diverse workplace, beautiful location
Cons
Lack of Parking, Difficult to access by public transit, high turn over rate, lack of career advancement

Ignornace Solidified
Quality Assurance Technician (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, NCMarch 24, 2018
Management has no desire to put out a quality product only to turn out products as fast as they can which leads to consumer blow-back and layoffs. Leader ship in non-existent, the company operated on the philosophy that good workers should pick up the slack of those who work slow or not at all instead of disciplining them.
Pros
good pay, plenty of time off, good benefits
Cons
horrible management and leadership, union is worthless, if youre a good worker you're required to work harder to pick up the slack of lazy workers

German Company highly structured environment
Anonymous (Current Employee) –  Fort Mill, SCAugust 1, 2018
I was fully aware that Daimler was a German Owned Company. They are very structured and can move slowly at times. The work life balance is really good. The people are exceptional and I truly enjoy working with my team and for the company. The team laughs daily and we really have a family environment where people care about each other and their families. They take the great place to work survey very seriously and they really work to develop the management. The most difficult part of the job is the more measured pace for IT development and system integration. Many of their systems are still antiquated. That definitely comes with a manufacturing company. The fun part is that it is manufacturing large semi tractors. I actually got to drive one! We also get to go to the plant and tour. That was really awesome.
Pros
The People
Cons
IT systems

Laborers and Freight Stock and Material Mover Hand (Former Employee) –  Gastonia, NCMay 29, 2018
benefits and pay were good, but coworkers are cold and cut throat and will throw you under the bus for their own enjoyment. Management is clueless in how shipping and warehouse should work and the union is in bed with the company making the good ol boy system worse

Daimler is a good company to work for. Long hours but pay and benefits are comensurate
Distribution Center Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Wood Dale, IL 60191March 9, 2018
Distribution Center. Typical warehouse setting. Union shop. Good solid group of colleagues horizontally. Enjoyable people all the way around. In the past there has not been a lot of support from upper management however this has been changing there has been more effort on development of the middle management and continuing down to team members.
Pros
Solid place to work Great Pay and Benefits
Cons
Longer hours. Due to remote location (not corporate) not much opportunity to advance.

Good management / Not so good project team support for intern growth
Intern (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MIJanuary 3, 2019
I believe Daimler has a very good management, which is inspiring.
But, the project team treats interns very badly and like we are selected to work personally for them. The work is not appreciated from the project team. I could not relate this experience to the entire facility, but explaining personal experiences that I had during tenure with them.

But, I know the fact that they have very good capacity for the higher level managers, indeed making good decisions, but the level below them is not promoting employees according to the skills showcased rather the level of personal attachment they have with their direct reports.

This is a very bad experience that I have faced during my internship with Daimler in 2016.

Productive and fun internship!
Procurement Intern (Current Employee) –  Detroit, MIJanuary 30, 2018
Daimler AG/Detroit Diesel Corporation is a great company to work for!

Flexible work schedule, good compensation.
The company culture promotes continuous dialog, responsibility, and mutual respect. Because Daimler AG is a global company, the employee demographic is diverse, and diversity itself permeates in every department and function of the organization.

You are constantly being challenged.
There is a 2 week training period before you work independently, and it's not very helpful. After the two week period, you have to figure out how to do the reporting from instructions and notes from previous interns. Management expects you to know everything.
Be prepared to bring your A-game. You will work with little to no supervision.

Your reporting is often in collaboration with buyers. You will have to request information from them. If you're an introvert this work will swallow you.
Pros
1 hour lunch, flexible work schedule, good pay, free coffee/tea
Cons
No paid time off, repetitive work

Stressfull environment which fosters quantity rather than quality
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORJune 7, 2018
Continual knee-jerk management style. Problems and issues were somewhat addressed as they appeared. However, root cause analysis was rarely completed to avoid repeat instances.
To say Daimler follows Lean Manufacturing is a huge stretch of the term; they use the "just-in-case" not "just-in-time" manufacturing model.
As long as the daily target of trucks out the door was met, upper management was happy.
Jeopardizing safety and quality in workmanship is a common practice in manufacturing. On numerous occasions I have seen it and escalated it and every time it was discounted by upper management. I will NEVER consider purchasing ANY Daimler product (Mercedes Benz, Western Star, Freightliner, etc.). If they willing to jeopardize public safety in their truck division(s) by turning a blind eye to safety and quality-in-station, what's to say it's not happening in their passenger division(s).
Daimler needs to work to remove the unions from the facility; with state and federal laws which protect workers, the union is no longer a needed entity. If removing the union environment is unavoidable, remove three and combine into one.
Many members possess the entitlement trait which has grown out of control.
The hardest part of the job is twofold: entitled workers and poor management.
Most enjoyable part of the job was the end of the day.
Pros
Benefits package
Cons
Constantly feeling negitively pressured by management
