    Pros

    Meet a lot of my close friends at damco

    Cons

    -Few hours
    -They send you home if there isn't enough work
    - Expects you to finish fast so they can send you home before the 8 hours
    -When there is over time they sometimes forget to give another break

    Advice to Management

    Respect your workers and give us more hours instead of firing everyone when you have a chance

    Pros

    Part of the Maersk group of companies. Very good benefits. Very good opportunity to travel.

    Company culture changing. Employees viewed more and more as assets.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the Maersk core values.

    Pros

    Modern work environment with cordial employees who all work hard. Company benefits are excellent and salaries very competitive. Good balance between home and office.

    Cons

    Let's face it - the transportation industry today is a commodity and generally goes to the lowest cost carrier. One way companies try to differentiate is to promote that employees are the company's greatest asset. But, when push comes to shove, there is no loyalty in today's company culture. There is only the bottom line. Work hard and think you have a long career in the pipe line. Not at Damco unfortunately.

    Advice to Management

    Too many chefs in the kitchen. No clear direction and strategies seem to change every six months. Long term strategic plans have been extremely lofty. Company structure leaves each global region to manage by their own devices. Trickle down information style prevails

    Pros

    Young, dynamic team with a lot of job opportunities and competitive salary. Communication from top management is conducted frequently helping employees know where the Company is heading to. Top management emphasizes personal values, integrity, honesty.

    Cons

    Long-served employees and middle management make things complicated, they play politics. Being too aggressive and lack of humbleness damage teamwork. Policies are changed quite often, most of managers want quick promotion so they do not foster collaboration between employees
