    I worked at APM Terminals full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    nice view all day - right by the ocean. people were nice (i've heard discrepancies on this though). union dynamics are interesting and challenging

    Cons

    anti-social hours (dont expect much time w/ kids or friends - this is a 24/7 industry; and so its more a life style than a career) however, they often give 3 day weekends, which mitigates the time you'll spend at work. you wont hear much directly from senior mgmt, but some ppl like that.

    I worked at APM Terminals full-time

    Pros

    Still trying to keep up the old culture of developing people to perform but facing cost cutting constraints that don't really allow that investment in people anymore. Global outlook.

    Cons

    Complete turnover in management in 2016 and a new strategy to be released in 2017 means future career opportunities are uncertain. Operational functions will always be needed but corporate will shrink further.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on the customer and your employees.
