    I have been working at Hyundai Merchant Marine full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good medical insurance, nice office, opportunities to learn new skills

    Cons

    There is zero accountability, positive or negative feedback is non-existent. There is zero commercial sense and no strategic sales plan. Everyone is compartmentalized so there is no team work or synergy. The company is run in an extreme socialistic manor. Directives are pushed ahead without any thought of consequences.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire american sales VPs. Provide serious team building workshops to create a more cohesive machine. Provide measurable goals and review w each team member at regular interviews. Coach people. Give recognition when deserved. Provide incentive and promote based on Merritt instead of tenure.

    I worked at Hyundai Merchant Marine

    Pros

    Company based out of Seoul Korea. They like to bring their people over for you to train and then they end up replacing you.

    Cons

    Charlotte office has a nice group of approachable supervisors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people based on their credentials, not because they are Korean.

    Pros

    Good insurances that keeps employees.Overtime paid for clerks only.

    Cons

    Do not expect any bonuses or raises. Worse benefits such as employee contribution every month & co pay of $20 starting from 2014. This company is losing too much money every year since 2011.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make wise decision for HMM to grow up by, not having "just do it" mind that result huge financial loss. Stop playing ping pong game when something happens.

    I have been working at Hyundai Merchant Marine full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    You will get paid OT if you need it. Although you pay for your insurance, it's ONLY medical. Vision and Dental are covered. Great vacation accrual rate. Benefits are overall good. Has a "family" atmoshere for the most part.

    Cons

    Lower then average salary. no bonus / raises for the past 3 years. Mgmt at upper level unaware of real happenings at lower level. Spvrs and A.Mgrs were never trained on how to be spvr/managers. Unfair workload. no cross training. Very strict on arrival time regardless of traffic issues, you are late 1 minute, it counts against you and later effects your bonus. Only ONE person does your review and even if you challenge the review, because a spvr/mgr did it, it's considered worth more then your rebuttal. Very uneven playing field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers should be reviewed by the employees they supervise, not by upper mgmt who DOES NOT HAVE A CLEAR PICTURE of their ability or lack of. Cross Training should be a MUST. No one person should be doing one job. With the exception of Raters, all CSR's should be able to do Web Bookings, BreakBulk bookings and enter hazMat information. Spvrs and Mgrs at the RCSC level should be workers and not think their job is to DELGATE workload. Pricing Dept needs an overhaul. It should NEVER take 8 days to get a reefer rate from AHQ Pricing. You will lose the business if a rate is not quoted to the customer in 4 hours. 8 days wait time is just unheard of.

    Pros

    The relationship with customers helps get thru the day. You do get paid overtime ( time and a half), you have to pay for insurance but they doles out raises to cover the costs.

    Cons

    Can't take paid vacation for 6 months
    401 k only match 3% of your contribution
    Severance packages are not that great ( 8 weeks for 25 yrs of service and that's where it maxes out)
    Koreans are favored

    Pros

    Great Benefits. Zero Copays. 100% paid by company.

    Cons

    Have not had raise or bonus in several years due to hard industry. Korean owned company and seems the Korean ex pats get more perks than employees. In fact our perks are slowly going away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work harder to improve company morale. Stop acting like us vs. them.

    Pros

    Job security. Good work/life balance. Great location. You will get decent experience here and get to work in a non-traditional corporate environment. About 50-60% of the employees are Korean.

    Cons

    Pay is less than what other companies would pay for same kind of work. It can be difficult to communicate effectively with workers at times because of the differences in culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of employees financially. If employees are better taken care of, morale will be higher and quality of work will increase.
