    I worked at Matson

    Pros

    Some friendly employees and management. I worked in IT so it was a pretty laid back environment with plenty of work to be had. Their app devs and webteam rocks considering how small they are and for the amount of work they must accomplish.

    Cons

    They are in a MAJOR need of a brand makeover or a new marketing team. (not sure if they even have one of those. Their website looks like it is resurrected from the early 2000's. It's as if they don't have a professional designer working for them. I actually heard that they do indeed have one but more of a mediocre graphic designer that they actually call the creative director. I heard he is usually busy making brochures that look dated back from 1999 and supposedly, they had the same guy design for the web! -yikes!! I hope someone that calls the shots is aware of this and lets a true ui/ux web designer pro handle that area. This may be the root of the cause. An incapable person that is leading web design and Matson's brand that is absolutely clueless. I've also heard stories of how much of a pretentious ahole he was as well. I guess he talks the talk but can't walk the walk (just look at their website). An ex co-woker of mine said he couldn't never back any of it up, usually resulting in poor work and attitude. Grade A brown-noser. If you seen their website... it's a pretty bad look for the face of the company. I think some restructuring is definitely needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire professionals for a particular area of work, namely web design. It will help promote sales which means more $$$ in Matson's wallet. A single graphic designer (aka mediocre creative director) should not be an umbrella for all graphic related areas. It's 2014, let your presence on the web to the entire world reflect such an old historic brand that right way. One of the guys I worked with there said all they need are branding guides and they can go from there but they don't even have that! Are they sure they have a true creative director working for them? Hope Matson doesn't get duped for too long before the damage is noticeable (But I think that ship has sailed).
