    CCL, while not perfect, is a great place to work. Would recommend to all considering.

    Pros

    Strong brand with good benefits (including cruise). Treats employees fairly well with many sponsored company events throughout the year and onsite day care and clinic. the large size of the company offers many opportunities to develop valuable skills in different areas of the business.

    Cons

    A good company to come into from the outside, but moving internally is much more difficult. Internal mobility will require many years of commitment and pay increases will be minimal. Annual raises are very small as well. Some areas are rife with politics and have high attrition. Good work culture is a blessing and a curse as it's very easy to become too comfortable and stop growing.

    Advice to Management

    Offer better career paths for loyal employees. A lot of knowledge is lost, or goes to the competition when they leave.

    Enjoyed working there. Made many good friends. Your enjoyment depends on the department and your supervisor.

    Hard to get on ships if you're new. Different departments give raises, bonuses differently.

    Keep stressing open door policy.

    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.

    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.
