    Pros

    MSC offers an international and young environment; it is also a big worldwide corporation leader in the shipping industry. They also offer VISA to foreign workers.

    Cons

    Unfortunately salaries are low especially compared to those offered by other companies in the same industry. Also they do not offer a real career plan and doing so they lose many valuable employees.

    Advice to Management

    They should improve the employees selection both during the hiring process and throughout the employment itself. They should also pay more attention to employees who deserve more and consider to treat them accordingly.

    I worked at Mediterranean Shipping Company full-time

    Pros

    The only thing that can keep you sane here are the people that you work with in your department not management.

    Cons

    The place is not the best if you're looking to get ahead in your career no matter if you have education and experience. It's all about who they like.
