    I worked at Mediterranean Shipping Company as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great hands on work experience in dealing directly with the clients and learning on your own after a comprehensive training.

    Open office floor plan which allows for easy communication with managers and other employees.

    Friendly but formal office setting.

    Cons

    Slightly formal and stiff office culture. Wide range of employees but most tending to be longer term older employees.

    Interns capped at 29 work hours a week

    Advice to Management

    Although the Friday lunches are a great thing, maybe offer a bit more opportunities for employees to bond or make friends with each other outside of the office setting

    I have been working at Mediterranean Shipping Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A very international staff. There is a lot of opportunity to take on large responsibilities very quickly. You can practice your Italian. If you are an international worker they will help with your work visas

    The pay is very low. After they help their employees with their work visas it is a good way to keep them there even if they are paying incredibly low wages

    Advice to Management

    Do not be so controlling. Respect your employees as real people. Don't be so myopic. be consistent with your policies.
