Productive work place
As an Ex servicemen this was a job that I could use my adopted skills from the services. My responsibility for this role was to ensure that the oil tankers were well equipped with anti piracy counter measures.

Fast paced environment
Ambrey is a good place to work if you are looking for an exciting, fast paced role with career progression. No day is the same. Benefits include Summer and Christmas parties, monthly socials, Ambrey social club. Employees have expectation to be of a high standard and detail orientated 24/7, you are often expected to work out of hours, and very long hours.

Will help with a CV long term but is torture in the present
I worked at head office for three years and was present during considerable growth in the company. Senior staff live in another world from those in the operations room (the organisation and running of the busines.)While it's great for building a CV as you get alot of experience that unfortunately becomes a downside very quickly as those at the top have a clear disconnect from how the operations are run day to day. Throughout my time the same issues arose. Not enough people and a workload that reflects this. Senior management are reluctant to take any critism and lash out when challenged. The only reason worth staying for so long was the team however most were burnt out and actively looking for new jobs.Staff members were treated differently for seemingly no reason with rules applied to some cases being forgotten about for others. Pay rises were promised and staff were strung along for months with no resolution. I left before a verdict was reached but this was months after the deadline for news on pay had passed.Training was abhorrent, often being given a handout and left to figure it out and weekly performance reviews were missed constantly however a new training manager and system was being introduced so hopefully this improves.Shifts could be 7 to 9 days long dependant on staffing issues and bank holidays had to be worked with the only benefit being a day back in leiu. Weekend shifts were hellish expecting 2/3 people to run a 20 person workload.The pay does not reflect what you'll be dealing with. Working in security there is always the risk of death however there was basically no training on dealing with it. Examples of things I dealt with were terrorist attacks, bombings, deaths of consultants and pirates attacks.To summarise Ambrey is a very unique company with many strange challenges. While the team itself is amazing the constant bad planning from superiors and poor staffing causes an unyielding amount of stress and made a work life balance near impossible.
