I have been working at Holland America full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good review mostly due to my Director and collegues (90%). This company doesn't lay people off in droves.

Cons

Raises are few and far between and the company generally pays less for the same job than other companies in the area. Most people are overworked (hence the lack of lay offs) and it's easy to get burned out if you make an effort for some work/life balance. The poor economy makes people fear making waves (by asking to be paid better for the extra efforts) and management takes advantage of this.

Advice to Management

Short-sightedness. We're supposed to save money by making things more efficient, but long term savings requires spending money on good solutions now. It will pay off sooner than you might think - listen to the people who do the jobs and losen the purse strings.
