    I worked at Royal Caribbean Cruises full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I love working at RCL. Granted, I was, a contract/vendor employee. Temp to hire. I love everything about RCL. Actually, I was liking it more and more. Great culture. People love to connect. Due to budget constraint the ride had to stop. Looking forward to joining in another department soon. Definitely recommend.

    Cons

    Breaks were short. Working downtown Miami. Everything is within walking distance. Not much cons, honestly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Love the atmosphere.

    Pros

    The building had a roof. And, you could buy food.

    Cons

    The proliferation of unqualified management would make a circus seem like a well run corporation. It is run by negativity, fear, and the work environment is so barren as to make you feel as if you are the last person on earth...even though someone is next to you.

    Different departments don't communicate, or communicate negatively, and everything they do is set up to make you fail.

    Managers, Upper Management, and staff are awful to one another and treat people as if they are worthless.

    Advice to Management

    I wish your company didn't even exist. It is a blot on humanity.

    It's my biggest passion to work onboard
