    I have been working at Seaspan Marine

    Pros

    ......very few these days, but their mariners are some of the best on the coast I hear

    Cons

    too many to list but most definitely starts on the top floor

    Advice to Management

    maybe start treating your employees how you would like to be treated.....fairly, instead of acting like school yard bullies

    I have been working at Seaspan Marine full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits; a psychologically well-balanced, hard working, diligent workforce (excluding management) with interpersonal relationships that are exceptionally rewarding.

    Cons

    Top heavy management whose membership is continuously in flux; extremely inexperienced and thoroughly unprofessional management; little more than an organized anarchy; too many organizational actors whose only motivation is to promote their own reputations; management/employee relations are mercurial/adversarial at best; extremely old and unkempt infrastructure; zero advancement potential; abysmally low employee... morale (most would leave if they were presented with a legitimate option); blatant denial of its poor safety practices; an idealistic company ideology that is reminiscent of the Donner Party’s; hallucinogenic and unrealistic company goals; in a perpetual state of denial; in a state of freefall.

    Advice to Management

    Far too late to turn this ship around at this stage.

    I have been working at Seaspan Marine full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are good. Pension matching is a big plus. Good overall health care coverage. Good vacation policy.

    Cons

    Location (past the railway tracks), lots of change, disorganized, some people need to retire.

    Advice to Management

    With the amount of opportunity that is on the horizon you need to get your stuff together. This place is disorganized. The Sr. Executive team needs to get our of the trenches and start acting like a Sr. team to allow their managers to do what their were hired to do. Too much micro-management.
