    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Mitsui O.S.K. Lines full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very easy to manage work/life balance with very few occasions to stay late at work. Managers in my region were approachable which was very nice (although maybe not the case in all regions). Easy going work place with many opportunities to travel and meet people from different countries.

    Cons

    Lack of a clear onboarding process so you have to figure everything out for yourself at the beginning. It is pretty much impossible to get fired meaning low performing employees can stick around for years, unless they do something illegal. Complete lack of diversity in upper management (I know, Japanese company.. but still). Good luck finding any women in major leadership roles.

    I have been working at Mitsui O.S.K. Lines full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I believe MOL Japan is a very loyal and fair organization to work for. Very up front in letting its employees know how the company is doing as a whole. I believe they truly want to do right by its employees. MOL Japan values family and loyalty.

    Cons

    MOL America is known to have very bold unfair hiring and promoting practices within their North America customer service division. This leaves most employees fearful of losing their jobs, While others who have been hired and promoted through these ill gotten practices never have to face those types of fears.
