    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Maersk Broker K/S full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent training for juniors, budding graduates Good work-life balance Multi-cultural, liberal - decent chance (not equal) of promotion even if you are non-Danish Global brand name Exposure to business trend & technological development worldwide Good chance for global offices secondment

    Cons

    Bonus scheme is non-transparent and subject to management discretion. The relatively high fixed wage encouraged deadwood to hang around, and the low bonus does not help to retain high performers. Ideal for men/women with families who are happy with fixed salary and willing to forgo their million dollar bonuses. The pay and bonus may be a function of your nationality. Ceteris paribus (if performance is equal),... a Vietnam / Indian passport holder may be paid a much lower wage and bonus than if you are Canadian/ British passport holder. Please note this may be independent of ethnicities. If you apply and work as a national of a rich/developed country (after you changed your passport from a developing country), your pay may be different. Conflict of interest in China-based offices. Staff that are paid by client company have access to internal information flow, which may contain sensitive information from competitors. Management pussy-footed on this matter.

    Advice to Management

    Reform the bonus performance scheme and make it transparent. Allow the freedom of competing internally with colleagues, who may be sleeping at their job. Recent firing of 25-years incumbent CEO may portend opportunity for change.

    Ship Broker in

    I worked at Maersk Broker K/S

    Pros

    global organisation with great potential in case you want to work in a truly international work scope. Good network opportunities as well getting expatriated.

    Cons

    Lacking modern leadership, the company sticks to very old management style, which are not attractive for new employees. Secondly the company lack senior managers.

    Advice to Management

    Greater effort should be taken to keep the senior managers. Cut down on the number of traniees as the organisation do not have time to take "care" of them
