    I worked at Shipco Transport full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company organisation is flat, so decisions can be made really quickly. The management is always accessible and helpful. People are valued and cared, the company arranges parties for clients and own staff constantly, creating a pleasant working atmosphere.

    Cons

    The flat organisational structure also means there are few opportunities for promotion and development, especially in terms of job placement and rotation. There are hardly any leadership development, training or rotational programs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider development programs for people employed over 5 years at the same role.

    Pros

    well known NVO with enormous amount of contacts overseas with the World Wide Alliance. Always adding direct LCL services.

    Cons

    poor support from IT department, computer equipment is outdated, extremely outdated system, inefficient and old. Promises of a new system but it was worse than the original.
