I worked at CMA CGM America

Pros

The starting pay is decent, and the benefits package is pretty good. I met some pretty cool people there. I also learned a lot about working in a corporate environment.

Cons

This is the most political place I have ever worked. If you don't have an inside person to pull some strings for you, then your career advancement is null. The atmosphere is constantly negative and stressful. The employees don't get praise for good work, but rather the management is quick to point out negative feedback only. Also, there is a lot of favoritism shown to certain employees, and special benefits are given to those employees. The management has no professionalism. Deception is somewhat expected of management and reinforced by the corporate culture.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Offer a balanced approach to feedback, and teach management how to be managers and take care of all of their people, not just their favorites.

    Pros

    The benefits are very good, at an entry level position you receive 21 days paid time off and 12 paid holidays. Visually appealing office building. Cubicles have short walls to create interactive evironment.

    Cons

    This specific job is very repetitive. Stressful job with no time for breaks between interactions with customers. Tied to your desk feeling at all times.

    CMA CGM Norfolk has much potential for a wonderful place to work if they could rid the very poor office politics.

    I worked at CMA CGM America

    Pros

    Benefits were superb! Vacation time was extensive. Clean and secure environment.

    Cons

    Office politics at its worst. The company valued work over family and expected your job to come before your family. Different departments had different rules, so not everyone had to uphold to the same policies. Supervisors were poorly chosen, some had emotional issues, some seen manipulating employees, disrespecting employees, and workplace bullying was prevalent from management and coworkers. It wasn't an attitude of "what you know" it was "who you know". If you can handle monotonous work and tiring gossip with no support from supervisors, you will love this place!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new management! Train management to effectively and professionally deal with employee matters.
