    Don't waste your talent nor your time with this company.

    Anonymous (Current Employee) Miami, FL

    ProsBenefits from day one. Something you don't see in most big companies.

    ConsThis company is run like a banana republic. Only those who are in the innner circle or family members of management will get good reviews and promotions. Also once management wants you gone, they will make your life a living hell, so that you can uit. Emplooee turnover is incredible; most employees don't last a year.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire leaders, not bosses. Hire personel with people skills and your company will be more successul.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Company with a few quirks - but what company doesn't have them?

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Miami, FL

    ProsSeaboard Marine's management cares about the employees. Although it may not be visible to the average employee who does not deal with the top management, there is a constant concern in retaining the hard working, talented, and dedicated individuals that have shown loyalty and a strong work ethic.

    The company offers a pension plan in addition to a 401k plan; not many companies offer this.

    The atmosphere in Medley and at the Port reflects a great deal of camaraderie.

    It is a fast paced, high volume environment but you do get a sense of unity.

    ConsInsufficient communication with all ranks.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Ok company if you want job security and no career aspirations

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Medley, FL

    Pros- Job security as long as you do your job, follow rules and come in ontime.

    Cons- Salaries are low due to not wanting to recruit top-talent.
    - Organization is run like a 'mom & pop' shop, with many conflict of interests throughout the company (i.e. personal relationships, relatives, etc.)
    - Lack of follow-thru on projects.
    - Business application systems are 'dated' to say the least.
    - Afraid to be progressive and edge-out the competition.
    - Lack of leadership.
    - No accountability by employees who have been w/the company for a long time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCorporate should re-evaluate all senior and mid management to 'cut-the-fat' as there are a lot of executives who do not 'get-it'. Take a page from 'Maersk' or 'Crowley'.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
