    Pros

    Good colleagues and friendly environment. Good medical benefits.
    Technically competent staff and good seafarers. Excellent reputation in the market.

    Cons

    New CEO, Carsten Mortensen, is more focused on promoting himself that the company. He focuses on redoing the office and building up a corporate staff in Denmark while the loyal staff in Singapore manages without increases for yet another year.
    Sucking up to the Chairman (which Mortensen obviously is good at) is more important than actually delivering. Sadly the Chairman doesn't see how disrespectful he is to managers, staff and customers. But everyone is too scared to tell the Chairman.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on something else than just change for change's sake.
    Bring back the old CEO, now Chairman.

    I worked at BW Shipping Pte full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Friendly Colleagues
    -Exposure to big scale project and good stepping stone

    Cons

    - The actual skill-sets are not being appreciated by the management. Those who is good in talking and boot licker are promoted
    - Long working hour for IT Staff, OT is a norm for the IT staffs but the efforts never being appreciated as quoted by the IT VP "OT is a part of IT support"
    - The management treat the IT staff as the liabilities and always aim to reduce head account despite the business is still growing
    - Very high turnover in IT infrastructure team due to the finger pointing and stressful working environment
    - No career future for the in house IT staff as the management is trying to outsource the IT services to the vendor.
    - Salary freezed and no bonus given to the staff
    - Very Political working environment and is very difficult to work for a boss who always try to please his boss but never take care of his own men.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat your IT staff like a slave and please treat your staff as a people who is also like you who has family to support. If you don't treat your staff as an Asset, your staff will also not value you as a good company and the talented will leave eventually.

    Pros

    It is one of best shipping company to work with.The salary is really very high and one gets opportunity to work with the very well trained officers and crew members.The shore management provides very cordial support to all the needs of seagoing officers.

    Cons

    The career growth is very slow in this company.It takes very long time at every rank to get promoted to senior rank.The multicultural work force may be problematic for people who are not accustomed to live with them.
