DFS Group is one of the best companies I have ever worked for.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at DFS Group full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood exposure
Opportunity to work overseas
Great learning experience
Promote from within
Great benefits
Attractive bonus
Once you are being sent overseas, you are well taken care of by their "Expat" package that does not have an expiration date as for as I know.

ConsOffice politics (better to know which one to stay away from).
Lack of team work (watch your back)
Candidates/employees who are internationally mobile are highly preferred.
Talented employees with great performance are most likely going to stay at the same job level if they can't work in other countries due to family or other personal obligations.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the local employees as happy as you treat Expats.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
