Senior Accountant Carnival Cruise Lines

Senior Accountant (Current Employee)
Doral, FL

I have been working at Carnival Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThey try to make it fun environment with give-aways and fun celebration of different holidays and things going on in the company. A lot of opportunity for learning diversity. Also has a gym and day care onsite.

ConsAlthough there is opportunity to move to different departments I have seen limited upward promotions. Once you start there the salary increases are minimal even if you did a good job. A lot of hours in certain departments with a lot of turnover.

Advice to Senior ManagementHigher raises for loyal employees. More upward promotions. Limit the number of hours for better work to life balance in departments that need it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Advice to Senior ManagementBe able to do the work you assign to your subordinates and have some understanding of the difficulties. Reward exceptional performance and don't grade on an average. Don't dick around over stupid stuff. Be more goal oriented.
