    Pros

    Their Stance on Safety is truest a culture.
    This is truly a Great company to work for they have a real open door policy.
    The company has a very lean structure which makes it a very efficient business model

    Cons

    Like every other companies they have a few managers that have no business being in a position over people.
     Their is not a lot of room for employees to move up in the company because of such a lean company structure.

    Advice to Management

    There is a real need to visit every location and talk to employees without manager included

    Pros

    Most easy going people to work with.

    Cons

    They don't promote people without a degree. Shame. OJT is worth more.

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone doesn't have a degree, doesn't mean they cant do the job. OJT is worth MORE than a mounted piece of paper on the wall.

    Pros

    CO-workers are ok and easy to work with.

    Cons

    Terrible management in accounting. Cut throat does not value employees who work hard. A lot of favoritism in accounting .)

    Advice to Management

    Values your employees quit playing favoritism and promote your employees from within. Felt like Management was bias to promote certain people they liked.

    Pros

    Many great hourly or contract employees. Just simple people trying to make a living with great personalities.

    Cons

    Company and management treats contractors like second class citizens/slaves. Management will lie to you and talk about you. No confidentiality.

    Advice to Management

    Drop the "God Like" attitude and how you treat contractors like disposable trash. Balance out the pay a little more......this is also a way of showing employee appreciation. BE CONFIDENTIAL.

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, camaraderie between co-workers. Overall, most employees and management were great to work with.

    Cons

    Unprofessional and unorganized Office Manager in the corporate office. She is horribly rude, inconsistent, dishonest and toxic. Treats her employees and outside vendors like dirt. It's truly disappointing that a great company has allowed her to create such a hostile work environment.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits....but that is it.

    Cons

    If you enjoy being bullied and screamed at. If you like watching your ideas constantly shot down. If you like your manager throwing things at you and kicking walls and throwing temper tantrums then South Portland Maine Terminal is the place for you. Oh and dont waist your time with their HR department, they only cover up their hostile work environment.

    Advice to Management

    You will never stop bleeding employees until you fire your management here. Remember people do not leave companies, they leave terrible managers.

    Pros

    Very good base pay, ok benefits that have dwindled, occasional travel opportunities, really good employees who try to create better morale for themselves where managers won't or can't

    Cons

    Departments have wildly differing management styles, zero chance to move up unless someone up above likes you. Hard work is seldom if ever rewarded. It pays to do the minimum possible to stay out of trouble rather than be your best. Long hours with no extra pay. Lots of 24:7 on call.

    Advice to Management

    No one will listen or care...so why bother
