    I worked at Carnival Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I was able to learn news skills, meet people from all over the world. I traveled and enjoyed all of the time I spent there mentoring and teaching othes

    Cons

    having ships all over the world and employees traveling to meet these ships and making deadline s was sometimes a challenge

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be aware that the employees on board the ships are very important to the quality of the vacation that the guests are having and despite that many of them come from other countries outside the U.S., they should be treated with respect and paid according to their position.

    Former Employee - Personal Vacation Planner in Miramar, FL

    I worked at Carnival Corporation full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Everyone was like family. Great cruise benefits. Open door policy with upper management. The pay was very good, especially if you were exceeding your monthly goals. Helping customers plan the very best vacation ever.

    Cons

    Hours were a bit long, so family would feel a bit neglected from time to time. Not everyone was allowed to work from home. Sometimes a sense of low morale lingered in the air. There were also some cases of favoritism that existed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The rookies need better in depth training.
