    I have been working at Seaboard Marine full-time for more than a year

    Pros

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

    Cons

    This 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Seaboard 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.

    Cons

    Insufficient communication with all ranks.

    I have been working at Seaboard Marine full-time for more than 5 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Corporate 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'.
