    I worked at Maersk Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    this is a lead architect job. title does not mean any thing this is not a hands on job. expect no hands on. excellent pay and benefits.

    Cons

    no hands on java at all. if u are working with IBM offshore expect horrors. . this is a complete chaos. no proper documentation development guidelines build scripts or even version control for a huge project. people don't even know how to use version control. they use version control to create directories and copy code from one release to another. no SDLC, IBM will do what ever and u have no control over it as slightest change will result IBM asking for 6 month delay and u get blamed. They are planning to Buy and integrate IBm products. so there may be less scope for development work

    "Overall, not a thrilling place to work"

    Pros

    Plenty to do if you want to get involved, easy to travel internationally if you want to (especially to Denmark).

    Cons

    It's so big that it's constantly reorganizing, the pay isn't great and while you're be close with your coworkers, it's really just because misery loves company.

    Advice to Management

    Can't really think of anything to tell them that they'd listen to - managers up to the GM/Director level tend to be pretty in touch with their teams, it's beyond that where there seems to be some confusion.

    I worked at Maersk Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Wide breadth of exposure to different business units and operations, working for this extremely well-run global conglomerate. Had a great time there. Worked hard and, in time, I was rewarded with increased responsibilities and pay.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of the industry, there can be layoffs due to restructurings, or if they decide to no longer pursue a certain direction.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I worked at Maersk Group full-time

    Pros

    Lof of responsibilities and great inspirational environment. There is great potential to get to know many new areas of interest and you can easily move around the organization. You can be in the company for a life time and still learn new things everyday.

    Cons

    Can be stressful and there are strict deadlines that must be met. This means that your private- and work balance can be difficult to master and certain peak times.

    I have been working at Maersk Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are not too many pros to this company. It is a same a company with this reputation treats its employees so poorly.

    Cons

    Long hours, poor management, off shoring jobs, unfair performance reviews, people protecting their turf, people fired for no apparent reason

    Advice to Management

    Stop off shoring all the work

    I have been working at Maersk Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You'll stay motivated working here, if for no other reason than the constant threat of our industry becoming "outdated". The comp & ben package are singularly impressive. Jennifer Ivie makes sure you get the perks coming to you. When she was gone having a baby recently, you could definitely tell. Glad she's back.

    Cons

    The management encourages the kind of competition which can undermine team cohesion and plant divisiveness.

    Advice to Management

    We're human, too. We have lives and families and the same college degrees you have. Don't treat us like machines.
