    Company loyalty wains when chips are down.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

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

    ConsLet'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 Senior ManagementToo 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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Backwards , lack of opportunity for career development.

    ProsGood medical benefit; relatively straightforward less politics and back stabbing.

    ConsLack of career development; too many management and disruptive changes which often demoralize the staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAt least pretend to care about employees.

    Working in a high growth company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsA company in growth mode with high ambitions and high focus on customers. If you are flexible and is good at what you do, there are a ton of opportunities to try different positions and move around the world

    ConsWe are learning as we go and constantly a step behind. Our targets are quite high and requires constant fight and focus to reach - and even then it is very difficult.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWe need to get as much focus on being a network business as we have on being customer centric.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Industry is not dynamic

    Supply Chain Analyst (Former Employee)

    ProsThe best thing about working at DAMCO is the international network, the company has a truly global presence, most competitors have only partners or agents in origin countries.

    ConsSupply Chain Management is all about cost reduction and therefore, in my opinion lacks the dynamism to maximise profits, this is not directly a downside of Damco but of the whole industry.
