    I worked at Princess Cruise Lines full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Close to home, ability to travel, good benefits. 9/80 work schedule. Casual attire work weeks. Cruise discount benefits including friends and family.

    Cons

    Not the same company it once was, once Carnival Corporation and Holland America started to influence it more and more.

    I have been working at Princess Cruise Lines full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good location, multiple buildings in one place increases accessibility to upper management, many food options in walking distance, free & easy parking

    Cons

    Bloated and ineffective middle management, multiple red-tape processes that aren't well-documented, poor decisions made from top down

    Advice to Management

    Learn more about the process and politics of change. When change is being implemented, it isn't done so collaboratively with users and the IT staff who will be implementing the changes. If the resisters to change were involved earlier and more often, the changes would be more understood, adoptable, and robust.

    I worked at Princess Cruise Lines full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Executive level has great ideas

    Cons

    All the energy of 1st level management is directed toward being right, good, the best, not at fault, taking credit, and assigning blame. High stress levels with all the favoritism. Retaliation for asking any questions beyond your own "project lead". A total do as I say, not as I do enviroment in the IT department. Treated like children. Manager more suited to be working at McDonalds where employees work like robots and never question anything and all the praise goes to the Manager.

    Advice to Management

    actually respond to the employee surveys. The attitudes and favortism shown my your managers, directors and sometimes VP's are leading to greatly diminished attitudes and productivity.
