Project:GSMS – Global Support Management System
GSMS is designed for the tracking of the production support calls till closure of the call/log. The support calls may be logged or raised via PMO/E-mail/support mobile. The system is applicable to the projects in the delivery groups that are responsible for the postproduction support. The system should assume the current flow of the support calls management in Hexagon-R and further it will be extended/tailored for other projects with proper customization that shall suit their need (if any).
In order to maintain the consistency on organization level information, this application will use the admin-level screens from an existing project GMIS-GLT Management Information System. The decision taken to maintain the consistency in the organization level information such as Organization (GLT-India, GLT-China, and GLT-Brazil), Departments, Projects, Resources etc. will help in extending the functionality of this application globally.
My role was a PL/SQL developer who can handle the object creation, SQL tuning, SQL writing, shell scripting for the GSMS application.

ProsThe job culture, work life balance & job Security is good in Maersk
ConsThe salary benefits are not up to the mark as outside market
The Logistics business segment offers a challenge every single day and with it follows valuable learning and experience. There was a lot of learning about the shipping industry and associated documentation, business culture across countries. A typical day at Maersk would start with a Managers meeting with stakeholders from across the globe. Then followed by a quick review with the team members - procuring updates, planning strategies, etc. Then followed by the scheduled meetings wrt process improvements, etc.A mid shift reporting on the days volumes to review any changes required in the days strategy, etc and finally concluding the day with a debrief from the team members. The employee culture lacked customer centricity and written communication skill , which was a real need for the organisation. This led to workload spikes and thereby long hours to control the volumes. The most enjoyable part of the job was the learning about the logistics business and the sense of achievement once the employees gained knowledge of customer handling skills.
ProsSalary Compensation, Industry learning
ConsStaff unskilled in customer management skills, long hours.

At noon, the whole team goes together for lunch(which is one of the important factors keeps us bonded, where we discusss our work load for the day, our interaction with the stake holders; which essentially acts as a take away from each others experience.
As i am working in a Danish company, i learnt a lot about danish way of manegement their work culture, which is so much different from the europe culture as contrast to what i had thought earlier before joining here.
My reporting is onsite where i am reporting to a Danish manager, who checks the status of work and delegates work acccordingly.

Vi møder ind til overlevering fra nat/dagholdet og gennemgår hvad der er sket og om der er noget vi skal forsætte med, derefter har vi en gennemgang af dagens arbejds seddeller, hvor vi tage stilling til om alt arbejde for vedligehold og de andre grupper kan udføres sikker og i hvilken række følge vi tage dem og det kan være lige fra en lille opgave til en opgave som tager +36 timer.
Vi er hurtig igang med at sætte safinger så når de andre grupper møde ind er arbejdet klar til dem, der tages olie og vandprøver flere gange pr. vagt og vi servicere vores generatorer, kompresser, vandanlæg og pumper, der skal gåes daglig rundering for at se efter om alt lyde og se ud som det skal, vi prøvekøre anlæg som har være taget ud af drift og får lagt det tilbage til drift. Der skal laves tryktest og lækage søgning på anlæg som har været ude af drift.
Vi finder tegninger og følger anlæg for at sikre os at en safing har alt med, vi laver opdatering af tegninger og skriver i vores overlevering hvad vi har lavet i løbet af vagten, efter 12 timer møde nat/dagholdet ind og vi tager en gennemgang af dagens forløb.

Toxic management and not a lot of room for growth unless you are a favorite to management. The saying - it's not WHAT you know, it's WHO you know became evident in the last few years.
High turnover and changes to departments quite often. Every 4 to 8 months it seemed like the company was changing a department or downsizing (only to create the same job with a different title within a year.) The company fired/let go/offshored so many jobs with department changes and let people go who were with the company for 20+ years due to unnecessary restructure. It felt that there was no loyalty to employees and job security was never felt because of how many restructures I'd seen in the 5 years I was there.
Colleagues who should have not been promoted (terrible work ethic, unprofessional behavior and communication, etc.) got promoted easily because of who they knew in the company. Hard working colleagues seemed to stay stagnant and had a lack of growth due to lack of higher positions because of constant restructure within the company. Team leads were depleted in my old department and the only way to grow or become a level higher was to go to a different department altogether. The first 3 years of my career were wonderful and when departmental changes started happening at a more often and constant rate, it become completely intolerable.
When new management came in - toxicity and high school behavior occurred (gossip and blatant favoritiscism). Management became an micromanagerial s

First off, I loved working offshore on a 28 day rotation. I love getting half the year off to spend with my family and can deal with a lot of silly garbage just to have that lifestyle. A nice bonus is the salaries that come with these jobs. When I first began with this company, things were great. I couldn't see past them. I did a great job, loved my job and made the most of my time offshore. I got glowing reviews from my supervisors and was given a lot of responsibilities as an electrician. The pay was great and the guys I worked with were great. Management was laughable and near sighted but that seems typical with just about any drilling company. But, I was a happy camper. Then came the downturn and Maersk showed it's true colors when it came to upholding all their fabulous core values that we were force-fed on a regular basis. A lot of really good guys were sent home, jobless. I understand the impact of the downturn and I realize that layoffs can be a necessary evil and Maersk held off for a while. It wasn't something they were used to having to do. As time went on, they had to do it more, and they became very good at it and would begin letting people go at the first sign of a contract ending. There were waves of layoffs even as the top drives were turning and the client was still on board. I was one of the lucky ones who stayed and ended up quitting because of the abominable way they conducted business and treated people. I knew it was an inevitable dead end,
ProsHigh Salary, half the year off, paid
ConsHorrible ethics, Dishonest and/or ignorant management, unstable industry
I form part the Execution Team in the Africa Operations Centre. The Execution Team consists out of four divisions namely Terminal Partnering, Cargo, Capacity and Marine.
My role is Marine Coordinator. Broadly speaking, we are responsible for ensuring vessel availability and schedule adherence at all times.

Every service consists out of a certain number of vessels deployed, ports being called to load and discharge cargo, the local agents handling husbandry services, Capacity and Cargo counterparts, as well as the Marine Coordinators in other Operations Centres.
Day-to-day execution consists out of communicating with the Captains to ensure schedule reliability, liaising with Capacity team to ensure all vessels are fully utilized, speaking to local agents in the various countries to ensure vessels berth and depart on time, and arranging fuel orders for vessels. All of the above is done at lowest cost to company, while keeping stakeholders and customers happy.
During 2012 Maersk Line adopted a very strict cost saving paradigm, resulting in various models, initiatives and sprints to achieve a favourable bottom line. The new methodology was filtered down to each and every department, and steep targets were set in place to turn loss into profit. Process Excellence techniques were studied and employed to achieve

Everyday our job starts with meeting with the senior engineer to give us our job for the day. Proper planning was to be agreed with all the involved crew how to approach the job. Before commencement of job we have to satisfy the checklist to ensure that it is already safe to work. In that way we minimize the risk of accident, and damage of equipment. That's how we practice onboard.
Usually, almost all of the job in the engine room and other machineries outside are given to us(junior officers), so that we'll gain more experience through it. Before I do any job I always consult the manual just to be sure that i carry out the job properly and I use the proper spare parts and proper tool for the job.
If the job to be carried is hard, proper planning from the senior officers together with the junior officers. If the junior officer was not experience enough the senior officer supervises the job. In my opinion according to my experience onboard there are no hard job if there is proper planning, good crew cooperation and there are designation on who will do this or there will be in charge to specific job, for example there should be one assigned to secure the breaker and so on.
The most important in any job onboard is safety, and that we are responsible for our own safety. Also honesty is needed to our job, because if we lie to our co-workers then we endanger them also not only ourselves. If we don't know the job then seek help or ask assistance, doing any job without proper knowl
