    I have been working at Mitsui O.S.K. Lines full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very good working environment, very pro employee, it's a employee haven. Rated one of the best place to work in for the shipping industry. High renumeration with very attractive bonuses and benefits.

    Cons

    None that I can think of. You will not regret joining this company, if you ever have a chance. Trying to find a job opening in this company is extremely difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The best team ever.

    I have been working at Mitsui O.S.K. Lines full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    One feels about sense of belonging to the company. Company takes good care of its employee.Loyalty bonus paid for long term employee.

    Cons

    Timely relief still not possible. For a 4 months tenure on board top 4 officers are made to do 5 to 7 months. But added benefit is that one gets extra bonus as basic salary if tenure is beyond 30 days from 4 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Must plan for timely relief for the officers.

    Helpful management and a good opportunity

    I worked at Mitsui O.S.K. Lines part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexibility, overtime (if hourly), welcoming management and colleagues.

    Cons

    There wasn't much in terms of opportunities while I was there, or at least I wasn't made aware of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe there should be more in terms of morale boosting and compensation incentives to increase productivity.
