I have been working at Holland America full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Overall the company is good to work for. There is good leadership and interesting opportunities for smart, hard workers. I've seen first hand that the leaders are extremely ethical and I'm proud of the product we deliver.

Cons

People have to work very hard due to the very lean organization. Also, for the last few years pay increases have been very small in this difficult economy that's taken it's toll on the tourism industry.

Advice to Management

Take care of your employees. As the economy improves we will go elsewhere looking for better salary increases and a less formal work environment.

    Pros

    Fair, equal rights for all. No racism or prejudice. Advance in carrier always possible.

    Too much work load in the HR Department and the only department with no gratuities given working in a small confined office.

    To restructure the Human Resources Department that they are not overwhelmed with their jobs and have equal rights for gratuities same as other department/s as well as an outside cabin.
