    I worked at NYK Line full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay for location and job duties was pretty good.

    Cons

    The list is to long. Management was atrocious! They yell at everyone on the floor. There were issues of sexual discrimination, Vice President referred to pregnant women or stay at home moms as Peggy Bundy, "what do you do while the baby is sleeping, eat bonbons and watch soaps." This was said to a pregnant employee in a meeting. Constant overtime and weren't allowed breaks, issues of threats and intimidation on a regular basis. I was called insubornat for getting water because the management said we weren't allowed to leave our desks, even though it litterally took 30 seconds. I quite and took job at almost half the pay because I couldn't stand how they treated their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Even though the benefits and pay are great doesn't give you the right to treat your employees like slaves. The only thing to do is wipe out all managemt and rehire because it's to bad to fix.

    Pros

    Secure job. This is a place you should work the last few years prior to retirement. You have to do something really bad to get fired.

    Cons

    No room for growth and promotions are never available

    Parking is terrible. Not located near train. Only Bus stop.

    They match your 401k up to a certain percentage, except you don't make enough to go up to the max percentage

    Pros

    Great colleagues and managers. Most congenial and supportive environment I've worked within. Management very open to allowing employees to work within different departments and areas.Really enjoyed being exposed to the Japanese culture.

    Cons

    Glass ceiling. It's a Japanese company, and it is usually Japanese employees that are advanced to upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to care for your employees and continue to hire great people. Only place I've worked where over a half dozen employees left and returned.

    Pros

    The company has a good diversity and welcoming work environment. There is almost no work you need to work after hours.

    Cons

    The general trend of the Mega-Shipping is not very well and keeps declining in the recent years due to high operational cost and high competition in all shipping lanes.

    Pros

    Very Professional. For the field international ocean transportation, one of the better companies.

    Cons

    International ocean transportation is very mature and so the problems are rote. Moving profit center back to Asia immediately made top marketing jobs less desirable.

    Advice to Management

    Shift emphasis from ocean transport to Supply Chain management. This will provide enormous room for personal growth for the employees and focus assets where you can really differentiate yourselves and add real value to customers.
