I worked in a team comprised of 2 people and we would have to travel to four different work sites all owned by the company and help reboot their system while individually going to each employee and identifying bugs and removing any files and reinstalling and connecting the employees back to their system in order for them to continue work. We would interact with other employees and held meetings with other teams and the sites we were with about when certain software would be safe to reuse and how the employees should go about using the system

My overall experience was OK at safmarine. Just found their loyalty at the end very appalling towards workers that has worked for them for years as the working conditions deteriorated over the years.

Great people, lots of potential, teams work well, management is a bit slow to make decisions and act on them. Salaries are not level across job functions, especially with expats around.

Great company with local culture, rigid in processes, but good place. people are nice. HR takes care of managers though and salaries are not fair across the same job function.

Worked here for 26 years. Once I got into IT, I found my dream job. Every day was different and challenging. Loved to get up and go to work. Was able to learn a great deal. Started in Imports in Freightmarine, Transferred to Saflink with Safmarine and Freightmarine amalgamated. Then Transferred to Safmarine. Became part of the AP Moller Group when they bought Safmarine. was moved to IBM when IT services was outsourced. Was moved back to Maersk Line when IT services was brought back in-house.

Every experience is different; but, MSK allows you to make the most of opportunities across the group, globally. This has allowed me to work with great, passionate people in a variety of locations across various business functions.

The shipping industry is a tough environment and constantly changing. Those who are not agile enough, tend to seek greener pastures elsewhere.
Pros
Travel, Career Development
Cons
Job security

Focused on cost-saving and efficiency, all colleagues work towards the goals of reduced empty stock, increased loading on vessels, and minimum spend on fuels. We learnt to work in tough environment as in Africa and work closely with the local African colleagues.
