    Pros

    It was the best job of my IT career, flexible hours, breaks, 3 raises as a contractor and great money! , management was not micro-managed at all . They delegated and trusted me , wish I was there still :) and it enabled me to manage my work , and get a honest days work in too , they also valued solutions to help better the team A+

    Cons

    the only con was that Management outsourced to TATA consultants off shore to get development done

    I worked at NYK Line full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very easy work/life balance. 35 hr work week. tuition reimbursement if you don't have a BA/BS yet. Generally an easy going management group. Really enjoyed most of the personalities that I worked with. Outside of HR they are generally good people.

    Cons

    No tuition support for post BA/BS. Lots of "lifers", positions in management always cite a college degree but promotions seem to always go to lifers over education. Its a weird hybrid of the worst aspects of Japanese and American management practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize dynamic individuals and promote and groom them. Recognize that talented individuals need a path. Get out of the compensation buckets and look at how you checklist individuals for increases and pay grades. Its an antiquated method.

    Current Employee - Operations Coordinator

    I have been working at NYK Line full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    35 hours work week, matching 401k up to 6% (they match 3%), 100% paid pension of 6% of your salary, health, dental, vision insurance, flex spending accounts

    Cons

    Limited room to promote, uneven work loads amongst entire departments. Hard workers are expected to be perfect and less than parr are allowed to take on less and do less quality work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach, follow-through and communication are invaluable to moral. Constant fear of loosing our jobs due to being 60 seconds late or company moving positions to Manila is stressful. Hearing things second hand around the water cooler makes use feel like we are not important and worthless. Allowing a little chit-chatting would actually benefit the company as we would then work more cohesively instead of every-man-for-themselves which is the current state, which is also part of people being scared of loosing their jobs, due to lack of communications about changes within the company as well as the industry.

    I worked at NYK Line full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits package is the best I've ever had. Company only works a 7 hour day. Flex Time in most departments. Good training program for new employees. Lombard office is in a great location and has a decent restaurant onsite. People are overall very friendly and willing to help new employees.

    Cons

    Customer Service is tied to the phones with less flexibility. Difficult to advance into supervisor and management positions. Frequent changes in direction and priorities lead to confusion.

    I worked at NYK Line as a contractor

    Pros

    Contractors paid by the hour, for every hour
    Some really nice people

    Cons

    Some really nasty people/cliques
    Expect to be woken up at crazy hours
    Ridiculous processes stop you from getting anything done
    "Hidden" political agendas all over (actually, really obvious known "secrets" that everyone has to pretend they don't know).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the process madness
    Treat your workers with respect
    More transparency
