    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

  2. The experience has been incredible.

    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.

    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.

    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 Management

    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.
