    I worked at Mediterranean Shipping Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Easy to get hired. Benefits.

    Cons

    Extremely low pay compared to the states average for a logistics position. Unorganized and unprofessional. Company does not appreciate their employees otherwise the minimum salary wouldn’t be this low. No OT paid. Honestly the only reason you would work here is if you’re Italian or you need a company to sponsor your visa, otherwise don’t waste your time and talent on a company who doesn’t appreciate you. Most managers are unqualified and lack leadership skills and training skills.

    I worked at Mediterranean Shipping Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They train you on everything you need to know and the job is fairly easy Salary is decent for the job Very good health insurance, more vacation days than at other companies Many opportunities to bond with coworkers during different activities, celebrations, special events organized Opportunity to participate in free trainings and expand knowledge International workforce, which makes the workplace more diverse and interesting No discrimination based on nationality, since people are so diverse Big turnover: you always have new people in the office

    Cons

    They promote people based on who knows who, not based on merit The workload is as big as you can handle and the overtime is unpaid Because of the promotion system, you often work under people who are unqualified to manage others Many skilled and hard-working people go unrecognized in the company that only rewards the loudest self-promoters Big turnover: you often spend time training others and dealing with new employees who don't have the knowledge to do the work
