I have been with Great Eastern since 2001 which has been rewarding both personally and professionally. The work culture provides a learning environment and a supportive atmosphere which helps in building one's career.The management is team driven with an inclusive mind set where the suggestions and opinions of employees are always taken on board.
We are a family here, and that’s what makes Great Eastern different from other organizations. And as family, the organization is always looking for future potential within and encouraging its employee to strive for excellence. From a successful sea - career to now, helping and guiding the seafarers on board, my thirteen years (and counting) at Great Eastern Shipping has been both rewarding and satisfying.
My journey with GE Shipping has lasted over half my lifetime and one that I cherish to the core. From a Cadet to a Master to a Superintendent, a ride of excitement and turbulence but we held tight. The company grows on you and every individual is more than a colleague, we are the Great Eastern family. Super proud to be associated with the company, and my heartfelt prayer is, it will rise tall, our ships sail further & our flag, flies higher.
To me, The Great Eastern Shipping embodies the very essence of corporate care. The company and it's management have always taken care of it's employees and has made sure that each and every one of us has all the care and support we need during the good times and the bad. ‘Once A GESCOITE always A GESCOITE’ is the motto of every Mariner in The Great Eastern Shipping.
GE Shipping provides the best of both worlds by challenging employees with meaningful work in a dynamic maritime industry, while exhibiting many characteristics found among the mature, high performing MNCs. Company has a good mix of young and senior workforce to have mutual growth and stay supported with employees through thick and thin. Sense of loyalty can be seen in every team member. A ‘typical day ‘is never typical in maritime industry as it offers new learning opportunities every day.
Great Eastern provides the perfect platform for the young and ambitious aspirants. It’s a place where meritocracy reigns supreme, where one can get tremendous responsibility irrespective of his/her position, as long as one can justify it with performance. Its’ been an exciting journey for me as I have gathered experience in multiple roles in the world of commercial shipping as well as shipping finance with GES.
