    Pros

    Great flexibility. Ability to re-arrange work schedule to balance work and life.
    Good benefits (although they could add a little more to be great).
    The company is once again in growth mode.

    Cons

    Not very many opportunities for advancement.
    Employees work hard and often work long hours. it seems that sometimes only the biggest and the best get recognized for the contribution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Current CEO doesn't take the time to get to know the people. Previous CEO knew everyones name

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    Pros

    Excellent employee benefits, good bonus and company pension plan. Fresh fruit weekly and office support staff are very helpful.

    Cons

    Internal employees are not valued as much as externally recruited employees. No commitment to promotion from within. Lacking feedback and progression planning.

    A lot of overtime is expected. Not much work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Departmental heads to review internal employees' potential for growth and promotion within the company.

    Pros

    Great benefits, nice sincere people to work with

    Cons

    Terrible communication within the company, the CEO does not know how to interact with his employees. Unfortunately CEO and management does not execute communication properly within the company. CEO does not have people skills and comes off as untrustworthy. Just check the employee surveys to confirm this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Losing great talent to the competition should be something to think about. What was once a world class company is now an average run of the mill organization.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Multinational workforce & dynamic organisation due to the industry of the company. Many new avenues to further ones career in the shipping and offshore industry with the market leader.

    Cons

    Too rigid as far as introduction of new comer´sto organisation goes. You are constantly watched. More like the management wants you to make an error rather than help you solve it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lossen up.

    Pros

    Continous Salary, 3 Months Contract, Medical insurance, Priority pass these are some of the things that one would consider working for this company

    Too involved in cost cutting, employs onboard are not provided with good quality equipment, too slow promotions.

    The company is still one of the best in the world, keep your employees happy and content and work for better and faster promotions

    Such potential, but falls short

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    excellent benefits
    Great people
    Safety is priority

    Cons

    Management turns a blind eye with anyone who has a 'manager' in their title. Quick to believe that 'manager' means they know what they are doing. Very large segregratin between management and employees and no merging of the two. They treat the office as a ship, everyone has a rank and gives the respect per that rank.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please take a look at who you have leading your units.
