    I have been working at Royal Vopak full-time

    Pros

    Good place to work for. You won't have to worry about being stressed all the time. Terminal pretty much runs on its own leaving you to have a well balanced life when you leave at the end of the day.

    Cons

    Hardly any advancement for new technology or designs. More business managing than engineering.

    I have been working at Royal Vopak full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fast growth in last 10 years, a lot of opportunities for staff development, good global network and expertise in the industry

    Cons

    Growing too fast, quite a challenge to organization development, in terms of having sufficient talent pool meeting the fast growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to think about change with the new competitions and narrower gaps between Vopak and other players, in safety, operations

    I worked at Royal Vopak full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Worldwide company with health benefits and good retirement plan

    Cons

    Managers at this particular location did not follow the company's policies, procedures, culture and values, making it vitually impossible to accomplish anything. All career opportunities are blocked by middle management and senior management's lack of supervision is more than palpable. Office managers do not believe in work / personal life balance, resenting people that can do their job on time and do not want to linger after hours or attending social events after office hours.

    I have been working at Royal Vopak

    Pros

    People are easy to work with, and senior management communicates views and strategy, bringing a sense of belonging to the rest of the team.

    Cons

    Preferential treatment provided to identified people within the team, lean structure makes it harder to climb the corporate structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote more from local office, and not from other offices or headquarters. To ensure that talent is retained within the company.
