    I have been working at Seaboard Marine full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Seaboard Marine's management cares about the employees. Although it may not be visible to the average employee who does not deal with the top management, there is a constant concern in retaining the hard working, talented, and dedicated individuals that have shown loyalty and a strong work ethic.

    The company offers a pension plan in addition to a 401k plan; not many companies offer this.

    The atmosphere in Medley and at the Port reflects a great deal of camaraderie.

    It is a fast paced, high volume environment but you do get a sense of unity.

    Cons

    Insufficient communication with all ranks.

    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.

    I worked at Seaboard Marine full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I learned a lot of the transportation industry, especially the impact the company has on our South Florida community. I also learned many essential skills within my department to make it a well-rounded experience. The people within my department, as well as other departments are great to work with. Plenty of work to go around, so you get to interact with people of diverse backgrounds. The company also offers great benefits to attract good people (most of the positions provide benefits upon the first day of hire)!

    Cons

    Some managers within different departments don't know how to lead their employees effectively. Some of them became managers due to their long tenure with the company. Due to this "tenure status", it does not allow for good people to grow within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate all of your managers to make sure that they can foster its growth for the next thirty years. As a first step, make sure to communicate the company's vision to all of your employees so everyone is on the same page of how this great company can continue its presence within the 21st century.
