    I worked at Seaboard Marine full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They offer excellent benefits. There are many great people who have been working for the company for years.

    Cons

    Work/Life Balance is horrible. Upper Management has no management skills, literally. Your voice is never heard and never try to speak up because it will be the end of your career. Oh, yes limit the times you stand to go to the bathroom they will count it. Do not speak to other unless it is work related, you be called upon and spied on by snitches. You will be judged by who you decide to go to lunch with. The stress level working in this department are beyond withstanding not by the work load but the ludicrous micromanagement mentality. Even though you are a salary employee sometimes working well over 50 hours a week you are required to report to you direct manager once you have arrived and when you are leaving, that is daily.

    Advice to Management

    Start to consider the voices from the bottom up you may learn a lot and people will be much happier.

    I have been working at Seaboard Marine full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company provides good service to multiple markets and customer satisfaction is usually very high. They command a premium rate to deliver a premium service.

    Cons

    Management does a very poor job in communicating vision and/or strategy and instead just barks at employees whenever they are asked questions. Very unprofessional working environment that does not value employee contributions nor efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the backstabbing culture that exists and treat people with respect and dignity. HR should bring in external auditors/consultants to assess if what made this company what it is today will ultimately kill it. That is my prediction.

    I worked at Seaboard Marine full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty decent if you can put up with the rest of the nonsense. Bonuses I didn't really consider a bonus since the salaries are about the worst in the industry and felt you were only getting compensated what you were due all year long but had to wait until December to receive.

    Cons

    Badly managed, mgmt is poorly educated so there's a lot of jealousy and retribution (manipulation of performance reviews - you will never receive a great review so they can nickel and dime you to death). Great degree of lack of communication and M.O. changed every other day which made it extremely difficult to function.

    Advice to Management

    Hire qualified management and employees. Communication is free, you should utilize it to benefit the company, employees and customers and it'll serve all well.

    I worked at Seaboard Marine full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    *Benefits
    *Family Environment
    *Work with struggling employees to improve performance
    *Stability

    Cons

    There is the inner circle, and then there is everyone else, Unless you have 25+ years under your belt, you are "everyone else" and will be treated as such.

    Advice to Management

    Welcome new employees. Its great that you appreciate your older employees but how will you keep that environment going if new employees feel like outsiders to your club.

    I worked at Seaboard Marine full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits package, but that's where it ends

    Cons

    Everyone in management has either been there for 30 years or is good friends with someone who's been there 30 years. HR is only there for management. If you have a legitimate complaint about harassment, they straight out tell you they won't document it because it will "look bad in the manager's record". You give two weeks notice and you are escorted out on the same day with no explanation. Harassment from upper management is rampant! Horrible place to work!

    Advice to Management

    Start appreciating your good employees and give them a reason to stay. All of your great employees will leave for much greener pastures and you will be stuck with the same old blood that has been keeping your company down for years.

    I have been working at Seaboard Marine full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Seaboard is a good company to work for with generous benefits (Medical/Dental insurance, 401k, pension, PTO, tuition reimbursement). In my experience, coworkers have been very supportive and a pleasure to work with. My manager has always been very fair and consistent, always giving me the tools I need to be successful at work. The company is currently experiencing a lot of growth so there is a lot of opportunity to work overtime and to grow. Jobs will be steady and secure.

    Cons

    There are few employees that might be challenging to work with, though I wouldn't say it is a representation of the company as a whole. Starting pay might be low but there are pay increases given with evaluations.

    Steady employment with great benefits, no reductions in hours or workforce. Ample opportunities to learn the business and processes, horizontal growth

    Low starting pay, limited growth opportunity to supervisor or above

    Advice to Management

    More employee development and competitive pay
