    Pros

    Benefits are excellent although we just started a high deductible option this year. Flex time for almost everyone and excellent support for training.

    Cons

    Good Old Boys Club. Lots of Nepotism throughout the company. You'll see people get promoted when they should be fired while others get outed or cornered in growth when they should be promoted.

    Women Directors are forced to report to another Director when they should report directly to the VP with no real explanation.

    Advice to Management

    Hire and Promote people based on skill set and personality /culture fit rather than gender or maritime experience. Not everyone needs to come a ship to provide value.

    Pros

    Excellent company well organized and provides services on time to customers. Managers get involved in full detail. With limited resources of hand force for details. But still accomplish a good quality job on time.

    Cons

    Mormon growing creates a lack of concentration in main business. Tecnology is behind competition. Need update and investment the soonest. More training for low level employees not helping enough in their dayly duties. People must be seen as an investmet not as cost.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the mormon growing. Those only care about converting people to their religion or including more mormon people in the vacants avaiable. This is not a healthy practice for any company unless you want to become a part of that religion only.
