I have been working at Seaboard Marine full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Seaboard Marine's management cares about the employees. Although it may not be visible to the average employee who does not deal with the top management, there is a constant concern in retaining the hard working, talented, and dedicated individuals that have shown loyalty and a strong work ethic.

The company offers a pension plan in addition to a 401k plan; not many companies offer this.

The atmosphere in Medley and at the Port reflects a great deal of camaraderie.

It is a fast paced, high volume environment but you do get a sense of unity.

Cons

Insufficient communication with all ranks.

    I worked at Seaboard Marine full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some nice people, decent pay, good benefits

    Cons

    Senior Management and Corporate Management do not seem to care about the Accounting Dept employees. Lots of backstabbing in the department. People spying and telling lies about others. Really bad work-life balance. You will work long hours because of lack of leadership and purpose.

    Advice to Management

    Make a change, for the sake of the good loyal employees you still have

    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'.
