    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    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

    Always up to date with technology without any training.

    Cons

    They are the most dirtiest people on the earth I have ever seen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to get trained on professionalism first and the most important thing. Then next.

    Pros

    Compensation, product was easy to sell, original refund policy made it very easy to sell as well.

    Cons

    Management not good once SVP of sales went to another cruise lines. Family feel went away. No support of employees. Very shady and unorganized management on most parts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to the values that the old SVP carried.
