    Pros

    Seaboard is a good company to work for with generous benefits (Medical/Dental insurance, 401k, pension, PTO, tuition reimbursement). In my experience, coworkers have been very supportive and a pleasure to work with. My manager has always been very fair and consistent, always giving me the tools I need to be successful at work. The company is currently experiencing a lot of growth so there is a lot of opportunity to work overtime and to grow. Jobs will be steady and secure.

    Cons

    There are few employees that might be challenging to work with, though I wouldn't say it is a representation of the company as a whole. Starting pay might be low but there are pay increases given with evaluations.

  5. Stable company with no to small growth opportunities. No over time, hourly pay has many demands taking $$ from paycheck.

    Pros

    I haven't found any yet. Benefits are offered from the date you start but are paid by the employee.

    Cons

    Management is very closed minded and is offended by suggestion on how to improve the workflow. Lack of cross training leads to disaster when someone is on vacation. Human Resources only protects management, not employees. It would be a great company to work for if they took out the garbage.

    Advice to Management

    Extensive training in how to treat employees with respect. Lack of professionalism when speaking to clients. Clients keep the company above water, and rude, unprofessional employees jeopardize that.

    Pros

    None. Hasn't been a good working environment for the last 3-4 years.

    Cons

    Toxic from the time you pull in till you clock out.

    Advice to Management

    I smell a rat. Or, someone ordered to fix the situation of bad reviews by former employees. Anyone else smelling what I am?

    Pros

    Benefits from day one. Something you don't see in most big companies.

    Cons

    This company is run like a banana republic. Only those who are in the innner circle or family members of management will get good reviews and promotions. Also once management wants you gone, they will make your life a living hell, so that you can uit. Emplooee turnover is incredible; most employees don't last a year.

    Advice to Management

    Hire leaders, not bosses. Hire personel with people skills and your company will be more successul.

    Pros

    Good benefits and few good long timers. Has lead the shipping industry. Good cargo handling equipment and some facilities.

    Cons

    Small power groups control everything and give few opportunities while creating a seriously toxic working environment for the majority outside the inbred circles. Closed back-door dealings leading to questionable business decisions and practices. Employees for positive change are pushed out of the company. Huge turnover in the last two years...

    Advice to Management

    Ship is going down unless you get rid of the power hungry idiots that are destroying the company.
