    I have been working at ABS as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    It gives you availability when needed. When you come to work you get the hours you need and when you have a doctor's appointment you are okay it's day labor

    Cons

    Many of the managers don't speak English so there is a language barrier

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair to all employees no matter where they are from and give equal to hours to all employees who are willing to come to work and do their job

    Pros

    Wide range of variety of vessels

    Cons

    It is a Bureau, so paper work is a part of life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do "undercover" work within your departments/divisions to get a better feedback. Since I have noticed various people comment one thing to peers and other comments to their managers.
