    Pros

    Money and travel but ...

    Cons

    The travel is extensive and quickly becomes a chore. This company wants to be quasi navy but will never truly be.

    The shore command has not a clue as to how life is on the ships and what we go through.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people right and with the same respect you expect from us!
    More leave!

    Pros

    Benifits are good. Pay is decent. Managers are very resonable and easy to work for. No micro managing.

    Cons

    Raises can be very minimum unless you meet an almost impossible list of expectation goals. Customers can be very rude, but this is common in most customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Do not sweep things under the rug. Deal with issues as they are brought to you.

    Strong logistics system and web catalog

    HR centric culture. Top managers do not adhere to the culture.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the power that HR has over decision making

    Pros

    can't really think of any good reasons to work for this company...

    Cons

    HR runs the company, takes sides..they go through people like a kid goes through candy. Employees are dispensable..You just don't mean anything to them..The cream of what comes in stays in Executive Management.

    Advice to Management

    Work with your people..Get to know what they do...What they think..How they feel....and you'll have more satisfied, productive workers who WANT to do what they're doing.

  11. One of those secured jobs on worth.
