    Pros

    Nice working environment, no constant pressure from higher management, being able to schedule the workflow by yourself, see a lot of new places. Being supported in advancing the knowledge.

    Cons

    Salaries should be higher. Being away from home for 5-6 months is not always easy.

    The company is strikingly generic; the embodiment of the worst elements of Corporate America.

    I worked at Carnival Corporation

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good pay, fun overall environment. Clearly, getting paid to travel and do what you love is an inherent pro.

    Cons

    There is a massive disconnect between the facade of public persona expected of crew and actual ship life. The efforts of Carnival to be a values-driven, employee-first company are laughable, culturally insensitive, and ultimately offensive. Living conditions are quite poor for the majority of the crew, and food quality is barely fit for human consumption.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember the people who do the work that ultimately make your shareholders happy.

    Pros

    Really a great company to grow with. The potential of making over 100k is there if you put in the years, build your customer base, work long hours and can convince people to book there cruise with you and not ONLINE!

    Cons

    Lots of Dialing 150 dials per day, long hours, incentive plan can be hard to achieve when you are new to the company! Only $7.83 base pay and $25 for a booking someone paid 5k for SMH. Some MANDATORY Saturday's! People will hang up on you!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to provide more sales training!
