    Pros

    It is one of best shipping company to work with.The salary is really very high and one gets opportunity to work with the very well trained officers and crew members.The shore management provides very cordial support to all the needs of seagoing officers.

    Cons

    The career growth is very slow in this company.It takes very long time at every rank to get promoted to senior rank.The multicultural work force may be problematic for people who are not accustomed to live with them.

    Pros

    Brilliant learning experience. The company provides you numerous opportunities to enhance your professional knowledge through courses and seminars.

    Cons

    The recent changes at the organisation have allowed many new senior management to take charge of key functions. This has changed the way the company worked and there has been a somewhat steady decline in the quality of management at the top.

    Advice to Management

    The senior management need to focus more on cost optimisation.

    Pros

    One of the best pay masters and good ethics. Good fleet of ships with decent variety,viz, oil tankers both vlcc's and products ( black and white oils), large bulkers , and gas tankers.
    Promotions are almost on time and good working culture as well. Most of the early day autocratic thinking people have been phased out.

    Cons

    Sign-on and sing-on on products due to logistics is an issue but better planning could certainly help.
    Few ships are still to get internet connectivity.

    Advice to Management

    Better sign-on -sing-off planning would help people a lot.

    Pros

    BW or Bergesen Worldwide is an owning Company & being so the Staff incld. the sailing staff are treated well. Onboard the Saftey aspect of all operations are paramount & not just on paper. BW has got a Fleet of Gas Tankers (LPG - LNG - Other) , Oil Tankers & Product Tankers. Its a very stable company & a reliable company to work for

    Cons

    The only con i have observed over the years is the fact that Promotions to senior ranks are very slow . One reason for that being that the company is very serious about safety & rank Matrix requirements. th ereason being the fact that BW has a high Retention rate amongst its Employees. Salary was a bit less compared to other companies until a few years back but recently they have caught up.

    Advice to Management

    Faster Promotions, Loyalty Bonus to staff who have been with the company for long - as an incentive / appreciation, Inhouse recruiting for shore jobs are just some of the apsects that I think the company management can look into.
