    Pros

    The workforce at Hapag LLoyd is very diverse, and as an intern i had an opportunity to filter throughout all the different departments within the company. They also paid for all expenses that i incurred while traveling with the company to the different ports that i visited during the internship. Overall the staff was very helpful and i felt that they enjoyed having interns working with them particularly during the summer months when business picked up.

    Cons

    There was no opportunity for overtime and i was forced to take an hour for lunch. I wish i could have worked a bit more throughout the day, perhaps started earlier and gone home sooner. Other than that it was very good work environment. Some days there was alot of downtime which forced me to find different things to do throughout the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The program overall is very good and could use little improvement. I believe that the interns are very well cared for, especially with the relocation assistance. Management had a very open door policy with the interns and we were allowed to ask many questions which was very valuable.

    Not for the ambitious. Steady paycheck for status quo.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and health insurance. One of the few companies still offering an actual pension in addition to the 401k program.

    Cons

    Extremely limited upward opportunity. The positions are quite stale and getting more encumbered with tasks due to continued downsizing. Customers are feeling this and are resentful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think outside the box to give customers the product they need and empower the sales force to do it and the inside support to make it happen. Keep outside sales outside, don't burden them with covering inside sales tasks.
