    Current Employee - Customer Service in Detroit, MI

    I have been working at MSC full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
