great people but getting too slow

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Mediterranean Shipping Company full-time for more than 8 years

ProsPlenty of young people to hang out with. the company is strongly exposed with interns and short terms. It is a good place to be in for the benefit and if you are the additional source of revenue for your family.

ConsIt is definitely not the company to be in if you need to support a family.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Run away from here

New York, NY

I worked at Mediterranean Shipping Company as a contractor for more than a year

ProsNothing positive except you are working in manhattan.

ConsSalaries are very low. Most workers are working to tourist and temporary visas. No advancement whatsoever unless your are Italian. Any person would be stupid to work here.

Advice to Senior ManagementAre we working in the US or Italy?

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Horrible place to work

Export Traffic (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Mediterranean Shipping Company full-time for more than 3 years

ProsNone whatsoever. Unless you count working in New York. Which you only will if all you know about NY is what you've seen in movies.

ConsEverything. They hire mostly foreign nationals through "creative" immigration processes, they have no other employment where they come from so they take advantage and pay the employees a ridiculously low salary. People are treated like sub humans, management will regularly harass you if you don't fall in line with the status quo and you can keep dreaming about any sort of promotion if you're not Italian...because all the upper management people are Italian "pals".

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
