    I worked at COSCO Shipping full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits. Easy to stand out if you show minimal competency.

    Cons

    No interest in developing a culture or employees. High turnover. Expected to perform your duties mindlessly, managers show no interest in giving or receiving feedback or developing a career path/goals etc. Employees are kept in the dark on everything except their daily tasks. No mention of goals/metrics for group/department/office/company etc. Executive ex-pats are required to serve in US for limited time which translates...

    Advice to Management

    Turnover rate is not sustainable. Company will reach the bottom of the Houston-area labor pool sooner rather than later. Suggest relocating office to China/India where larger labor market can support the turnover rate.
