    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.

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

    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.

  9. Very good benefits, great people to work with, but management needs to improve

    Pros

    I learned a lot of the transportation industry, especially the impact the company has on our South Florida community. I also learned many essential skills within my department to make it a well-rounded experience. The people within my department, as well as other departments are great to work with. Plenty of work to go around, so you get to interact with people of diverse backgrounds. The company also offers great benefits to attract good people (most of the positions provide benefits upon the first day of hire)!

    Cons

    Some managers within different departments don't know how to lead their employees effectively. Some of them became managers due to their long tenure with the company. Due to this "tenure status", it does not allow for good people to grow within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate all of your managers to make sure that they can foster its growth for the next thirty years. As a first step, make sure to communicate the company's vision to all of your employees so everyone is on the same page of how this great company can continue its presence within the 21st century.

    Pros

    Excelent benefits, 401K, health & dental insurance. Great deal of camaraderie!

    Cons

    Not enough communication between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Commercial divisions need to follow same standards.

  11. I worked at Seaboard Marine full-time

    Pros

    Good company w good benefits

    Cons

    Supervisor for the 807 dept. needs better supervisory skills. When she sets her eye on someone she is definitely out to get them. She harasses people that do not fit in her clan. Definitely is one thing when her boss isn't there and another when her boss is. I hope they take all reviews in consideration.

    Advice to Management

    Need to reevaluate the supervisory skills their management posses
