    "CMA CGM Norfolk has much potential for a wonderful place to work if they could rid the very poor office politics."

    Pros

    Benefits were superb! Vacation time was extensive. Clean and secure environment.

    Cons

    Office politics at its worst. The company valued work over family and expected your job to come before your family. Different departments had different rules, so not everyone had to uphold to the same policies. Supervisors were poorly chosen, some had emotional issues, some seen manipulating employees, disrespecting employees, and workplace bullying was prevalent from management and coworkers. It wasn't an attitude of "what you know" it was "who you know". If you can handle monotonous work and tiring gossip with no support from supervisors, you will love this place!

    Advice to Management

    Get new management! Train management to effectively and professionally deal with employee matters.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits - better than at other shipping companies with a very small contribution from the employees. Contribution to benefits varies with salary level. Very nice office space - management goes out of its way to make sure that the work atmosphere is pleasant for all employees at all levels.

    Cons

    Having to deal with difficult personalities coming from the head office in France. The policies from France can be commercially unreasonable and it makes it very difficult to explain to customers. Also, the relationship between the head office and the US company is not good and the people in France do not respect the employees in the US or their opinions or ideas.

    Advice to Management

    The US Senior management is what has propelled CMA CGM into the top 10 shipping companies in the US. Keep it up and keep improving the quality of the associates in the US.
