    Pros

    You get to travel all the time. Great way to save money as you have no expenses on board. Free room and board!!!

    Cons

    Food isn't the best that they provide you. The room is quite small and you share it with someone else. Management never listens to your ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to people and actually care about what they say. They are the ones doing all the real work around the ship.

    Pros

    The company offers stability and a great work life balance. Very flexible and will allow you to come in on the weekends to make up time. Most managers are good and steady raises every year.

    Cons

    No room to grow at this company. Once you are in a position, there you shall stay unless you move to another department. Too much work is given to each employee to complete.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people and create room for advancement.

    Pros

    There are many great reasons to work at Carnival from the benefits, financial and others, earnings, people from the front line to upper management.

    Cons

    My only cons are those of any job. There isn't anything that really stands out.

    Pros

    Room for improvement to move to other departments that can lead to better pay. Opportunity to put requests for free cruises just pay taxes and tips.

    Cons

    Schedule is changes. There's bidding for schedule times and people that have seniority get the best times just like trying to get free cruises. You've to sell. You are on a point scale and if you don't meet your requirements will hear from a supervisor..

    Advice to Management

    Quality control supervisors need to be more professional as far as focus on your employees' jobs, not to have your group as a social little group, and if you the supervisor don't like someone in your assigned group don't make his/her life a living hell.

  11. Very good culture
