Negative Outlook

I have been working at Seaboard Marine full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- Job security as long as you do your job, follow rules and come in ontime.

Cons

- Salaries are low due to not wanting to recruit top-talent.
- Organization is run like a 'mom & pop' shop, with many conflict of interests throughout the company (i.e. personal relationships, relatives, etc.)
- Lack of follow-thru on projects.
- Business application systems are 'dated' to say the least.
- Afraid to be progressive and edge-out the competition.
- Lack of leadership.
- No accountability by employees who have been w/the company for a long time.

Advice to Management

Corporate should re-evaluate all senior and mid management to 'cut-the-fat' as there are a lot of executives who do not 'get-it'. Take a page from 'Maersk' or 'Crowley'.

    I worked at Seaboard Marine full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They offer excellent benefits. There are many great people who have been working for the company for years.

    Cons

    Work/Life Balance is horrible. Upper Management has no management skills, literally. Your voice is never heard and never try to speak up because it will be the end of your career. Oh, yes limit the times you stand to go to the bathroom they will count it. Do not speak to other unless it is work related, you be called upon and spied on by snitches. You will be judged by who you decide to go to lunch with. The stress level working in this department are beyond withstanding not by the work load but the ludicrous micromanagement mentality. Even though you are a salary employee sometimes working well over 50 hours a week you are required to report to you direct manager once you have arrived and when you are leaving, that is daily.

    Advice to Management

    Start to consider the voices from the bottom up you may learn a lot and people will be much happier.
