    I have been working at Neptune Orient full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The past heritage of this company's APL subsidiary; innovator, niche market exploiter, technology leader, survivor.

    Cons

    Return to former NOL stature as an below average non-player. Company actively being dismantled and fashioned into a figurehead carrier, unimaginative leadership, threatening environment, disdain for customers and human capital.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand up and dig in or move on. Do not sacrifice integrity. There are no easy answers, and consultants do not have them.
