    Pros

    Office is in a beautiful part of Morristown. It is a good place to gain office experience if you are fresh out of college.

    Cons

    Managers were extremely unprofessional and appeared to not want to be there. Younger staff are treated extremely poorly. Strong "bullying" culture from upper management which resulted in strong turnover. Little to no formal training.

    I worked at Hamburg Sud North America full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Was able to apply my experience to the job. Office building is located in a beautiful part of Morristown with parks nearby that are safe.

    Cons

    Worked there for several years. Some managers expect you do additional tasks that are not in your job description. Managers seem to be allowed to do whatever they want without consequence from upper management.There is a lot of competition between employees although most employees there are nice people in general.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would suggest to oversee, reorganize and track management.
