    Pros

    Great place to work in Florida. Company was very good to me and let me learn the ropes of the finance world

    Cons

    Pretty hard to move up. They have a core of people who just are there and move up. Not too much to complain though

    Advice to Management

    Make easier to move up in company, less on seniority and more on productivity would be key I feel to advancing the company to the next level

    Pros

    After years of being in the contracting world I came to Carnival. Upon entering I was very impressed after hearing that many people there were over 5, 10, 20 and event more time with the company. Soon enough I realized that the environment and the culture were nothing like I had experience before. The company had very tangible offerings and the culture was very friendly to the people and their family. Albeit it being a very demanding and challenging environment, much effort was also put in helping one to succeed and grow in all areas.

    Cons

    5 words for Cons: none really.

    Pros

    Great company. Lots of opportunities to move up. Overtime almost always available even during slow season. Discount cruises! !

    Cons

    Typical corporate setting with strict guidelines but aren't hard too follow as long as you are doing your job properly. Big company so it's difficult to get to know everyone.

    Advice to Management

    None.
