    I have been working at Seaspan Marine full-time

    Pros

    The people. There's a reason folks have spent 30, 40, and even 50+ years with this company. To most, it's a second home where everyone feels welcome and motivated to work hard.

    Cons

    Transportation. The location is not serviced by transit, making it difficult to commute.

    Advice to Management

    Develop and promote from within. It's key to future success.
