    I worked at Wilhelmsen Ship Management for more than a year

    Pros

    Wilhelmsen Ship Management is a leader company in the maritime business. They ensure compliance with all the international regulations in every vessel they operate through its well designed Ship Safety Management System. I always will be grateful for the opportunity I had to develop myself as a professional and seaman onboard the vessels they operate.

    Cons

    Racism/discrimination from the Polish crewmembers.

    Advice to Management

    Monitor and fight racism/discrimination onboard your vessels.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Wilhelmsen Ship Management full-time

    Pros

    Great healthcare - people are wonderful to work with, just not management

    Cons

    Where to begin? Matrix Management does not work in this company. Every manager has their own agenda, their own rules. That makes for a disjointed company of multi-departmental rules. Different dress codes, different ideals, different goals. Management has no concept of what is actually happening because the ones that make the decisions are in Norway. Recent layoffs have demoralized the staff and torn at the... very fiber of the employee base. People don't trust each other, they certainly don't trust management and it's not going to get better.

    Advice to Management

    WAKE UP. Get out of Norway and visit your US locations. Sit down and actually listen to your employees - not the managers that you have hired from the financial industry. Find out where you are going wrong and fix those areas.
