    I have been working at Mitsui O.S.K. Lines full-time (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 Management

    Must plan for timely relief for the officers.

    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.

    The best team ever.

    I worked at Mitsui O.S.K. Lines part-time (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 Management

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