      I worked at Carnival full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Good experience, get to know a lot of places and a lot of cultures as you work with several dozens of nationalities on board.

      Cons

      CCL is a big corporation and sometimes the individual is lost in the crowd, most times the meaning of the TEAM trumps the personal performance and much of the talent is lost as is underappreciated or leaves.

      Advice to Management

      As part of the management for more than 10 years i can only give an advice: Take care of your Teams. CCL policy is there to stay and you are good as long your team is performing.
