I worked at Port of Corpus Christi full-time (More than 10 years)
It used to be a happy place to work at and it could be again if some of the older crowd would move on and let the newer crowd put modern business practices in place. Directors are stuck in the past reliving their old military days as if it makes a difference in the present day.
Upper management receives high salaries and benefits. Executive Director has been there almost 20 years and other upper management have been there so long that ALL of management is stagnant and dysfunctional ie: good old boy crowd.
Advice to Management
Quit paying attention to yourselves so much and pay attention to the little guys in yards. A pay raise fo the little guys would be a good start. Disheartening to read about Larue's bonus every year while the rest of the workers barely make a living. That cost of living raise is a joke....not helpful at all.
