    Poor Benefits....Unnecessary Politics....Lack of Clarity

    Coordinator (Current Employee)
    Cranford, NJ

    ProsThin Hierarchical layer...You literally can walk into the commercial manager's office and talk to him
    Employees are very accessible

    ConsPoor Salary
    Growth based on experience rather than competence
    Dearth of growth opportunities because of the hierarchy being so thinly layered
    People lack the quality of being accountable

    Advice to Senior ManagementStep up!! Recognize and promote talent.....pay better.....encourage accountability

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fantastic growth story but some ways to go on cultural development

    Management Position (Current Employee)

    ProsLots of new bright people joining the company following the restructuring that ended in 2013. Lots of growth and advanced new ships make this one of the most exciting companies to work for in the industry.

    ConsCompensation is on the lower end given the high costs in many of the cities where the company has corporate and regional offices. Advancement has been slow in the past although this may improve under the new management coming out of the restructuring. Some of the old-school management still needs to be changed/upgraded.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on improving company culture, not just growth.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    HQ Asia: Singapore. Great working climate

    Management Trainee (Former Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsPeople were very friendly and from all over the globe.

    Very easy to get into the work and get help from co-workers.

    The office is very modern and has a great environment to work in. Although only the management has their own offices, you don't feel like working in a crowded environment.

    ConsI could not think of anything that I did not like during my 5 weeks of internship in the Singapore.
