    I have been working at Wallenius Wilhelmsen full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Baltimore VSA has outstanding management team, hard working, and they care about their employees. The HR department has heavy work load and they are a top notch HR department -organized and professional. I have worked for a lot of big companies and WWL onboarding process is advanced with an online enrollment for the entire process. Great Company! They really care about everyone and they work hard everyday.

    Cons

    You will work hard, but isn't that why you go to work to make a difference.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the hard work Baltimore VSA !

    Co-workers were nice and friendly. We were outside working at our own pace.

    I worked at Wallenius Wilhelmsen full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Hardly a dull day, plenty of opportunity for overtime if cross-trained, many departments with very different tasks, some of the most friendly and hard-working co-workers I've run across, first-hand experience with brand new Nissan models.

    Cons

    Communication between higher-ups leaves much to be desired, some management severely lack work-ethic and can be very unpersonable, extreme varying hours due to relying on economy, outdoor climate exposure, often trained by others who started only days before, sometimes goal expectations seem improbable if not impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with each other and those beneath you, take responsibility, don't sleep while on the clock, increase approachability, lower goal expectations to more human standards.
