    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.

    I worked at Seaspan Marine for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits. Excellent new facilities.

    Cons

    They moved from shop repair to a shipbuilding within a day and they were not prepared, nor did they care on how to do it, they lack on procedures and lack of lack of ethical professionalism. There it's all about politics, you get promotions or projects based on who you know and not on how fit you are for the job.

    Advice to Management

    Stop wasting money in contractors, but if you really need a contractor, make sure you do a proper bidding and not favoring certain 'preferred" companies that are way more expensive and that put people in their projects that has no more than a year of experience.

    Pros

    Good salary, less accountability, no questions asked.

    Cons

    Too much of favoritism and politics. HR dept has no integrity and favors those who are in their good books. Nepotism is rampant. Time and again serious allegations have been made against the HR dept but the senior management refuses to take action

    Advice to Management

    Please listen to the employees as they genuinely care for the company
