    I worked at Cargotec full-time

    Pros

    Pretty good work/life balance. Benefits were some of the best in the area.

    Cons

    The so called Management team was unable to work together for the common good for the entire company. To many times it was a battle to get things accomplished across department lines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grips and complaints moves lateral across your own peer group; if the issue doesn’t get resolved then grips and complaints move up in the leadership chain. Not only learn how to hold people accountable, learn how to hold yourself accountable.

    I have been working at Cargotec full-time

    Pros

    There is a lot of turn over and new management coming on-board. The culture contains a lot of uncertainty and instability

    Cons

    Jobs for current positions are posted as open on the internet. Many of the "open" positions are currently filled with temporary help. There is little direction from supervisors, but much blame.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat all the employees as you would like to be treated, not as you were in the past and not as servants. The Blame Game is not good for morale.

    I have been working at Cargotec

    Pros

    The work although extremely slow is not bad. Time off without pay is granted with no hastle. The company is strong and extremely profitable. Allegedly there is a quality training program.

    Cons

    The training is not made available due to the expense. There is no per diem and the expense policy is a huge hastle and based a greedy philosophy. The work load is extremely minimal, but heavy on the weekends and holidays. The plans for growth of this business unit is strangled by their absolute frugal philosophy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you intend on being competitive in the marketplace and attract quality talent, then I strongly suggest adopting a per diem policy that is comparable to the industry standard. Keep the commitments you make on training, work, ect. Keep in mind that while you are seeking quality employees to join your ranks so are many other employers.

    They should strive for better top management people and who are aware of ground realities rather than people who are only giving pleasant picture.

    Pros

    Fresher can learn new things

    Cons

    using bond as an arm to screwed employe . You can't leave cargotec in less than 2 year as you had signed bond Bond become a good source of income for Cargotec

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please don't misuse bond for gaining profit . It is not a source of income. Business can't grow like this
         If u can't give good salary to emp at least try to motivate and give some credit such that he can feel good.
    I can understand that company have invested in employee for their training and all, but if you are not giving them training or any benefits then what the meaning of bond.

    I have been working at Cargotec

    Pros

    Interesting position as a company in the transport and distribution of goods globally. International company with locations worldwide, provides an opportunity to interact with colleagues from around the world experiencing different cultures.

    Cons

    Frequent reorganizations have led to layoffs and have not allowed the company to "heal" between them. Often salaries are not competitive although generally benefits are good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow the company organization to settle, this permits employees to rebuild relationships internally and return to productive state. Make a clear and specific company direction statement and product goal.
