      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at Mediterranean Shipping Company full-time

      Pros

      Great team to work with; management gives the training or advice you need to do well without micromanaging

      Cons

      No real downside, just need to work efficiently and accurately to meet deadlines. Don’t try to push your duties on other people, nobody likes that.

    • "Would work here again"

        Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Charleston, SC

        I worked at Mediterranean Shipping Company full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Great team work; they take care of their employees. Great benefits.

        Cons

        Work day should be 8 hours, just like all their other offices.

        I worked at Mediterranean Shipping Company full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Good Health Insurance and great people.

        Cons

        Terrible Pay. the 1% raise every year doesn't even cover for inflation. New hires start at higher pay then people that have been there 5-10 years. Limited room for growth.

        Advice to Management

        Would benefit from picking up a book and actually learning how to manage people.

          I worked at Mediterranean Shipping Company full-time for more than 2 years

          Pros

          My coworkers are are all friendly. Benefits are definitely good for a guy in my position (married, no kids). Pretty decent 401k. Not sure about upper management but middle management interacts with us daily and is really concentrated on employee development

          Cons

          This is the most boring, mind numbing, least fulfilling work I have ever done. Don’t know what I thought I would be doing when I started here, but I feel my life shortening as I sit on my butt for 8 hrs/day and help people ship stupid crap. Probably my fault for not researching enough about the position or company...but still sucks though

          Advice to Management

          Keep investing in employees. There’s something to be said for a company like that can keep lots of people for 5+ years in today’s world
