    I worked at Mitsui O.S.K. Lines part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility, overtime (if hourly), welcoming management and colleagues.

    Cons

    There wasn't much in terms of opportunities while I was there, or at least I wasn't made aware of them.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe there should be more in terms of morale boosting and compensation incentives to increase productivity.
