    I worked at Holland America full-time

    Pros

    If you want to work in an environment where you can make a name for yourself and take on increasing challenges, Holland America is a decent place to start a career. There are some travel perks.

    Cons

    Upper management lack emotional intelligence and rarely promote upward, but one can move lateral. Salaries are a joke, expect 20% less than what you can get elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Pay for the right talent and you'll get good productivity from your employees.

    I worked at Holland America full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pays well, great location, wednesday is omelet day in the cafeteria

    Cons

    Middle management that throw tantrums, micromanage situations they aren't involved with, frequently make rash decisions and switch gears suddenly, extraordinarily low morale, technology is extremely old and long-term employees have outdated and antique ideas about Information Technology, ugly dilapidated environment, ridiculously old and mismatched computers for employees (even IT people who do all the development and system maintenance).

    Advice to Management

    Keep your employees' training current, invest in your creative talent's happiness and job satisfaction, practice controlling your temper - it's the workplace not preschool and it's called "Professionalism", learn to cooperate with each other - you're on the same team. All of these things will vastly increase productivity and quality
