    Pros

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

    Cons

    Poor 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

    Step up!! Recognize and promote talent.....pay better.....encourage accountability

    I have been working at United Arab Shipping Company full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good perks and time-off policies / Goof overall salary / there is more freedom to do things differently compared to other companies

    Cons

    Old mindset in managing things / no performance-related bonus / dealing with people who did the same job for a very long period of time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to have better policies and procedures around personal growth, performance management, and promotions (some people stayed in the same position for +15 years!)

    I have been working at United Arab Shipping Company full-time

    Pros

    Lots 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.

    Cons

    Compensation 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 ManagementAdvice

    Focus on improving company culture, not just growth.

    I worked at United Arab Shipping Company as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    People 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.

    Cons

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