    I worked at Royal Caribbean Cruises full-time

    Pros

    Travel the world by ship, meet great people from many cultures on and off the ship, party every night...Literally! Save money on room and board.

    Cons

    6-7 months away from home and family. Only decent pay for bringing money back to US is in the Entertainment department.

    Advice to Management

    Increase salaries.

    I have been working at Royal Caribbean Cruises full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great brand, I will stay a customer and use the cruise line. The company offers good benefits.

    Cons

    Very little career growth, people hold the same position for decades. Also, seniority runs the place, its like a little mafia, only friends get promoted. The salaries are usually under market value about 6K.

    Advice to Management

    People should not hold a position for decades, they should at least get rotated. These old timers think they own the place and ruin the experience for the new employees. Executives have the right idea and try to create a nice culture but middle management is not the best, a lot of nepotism takes place in this company.

    I have been working at Royal Caribbean Cruises full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company culture. Great perks! Professional development - mentoring, programs, team members, management, cruisung discount etc.

    Cons

    This is the only downfall- There is no work life balance. If you have a family and live no where near Miami, expect to come home after dinner. Time off can seriously be improved, especially for those with families or other personal responsibilities; I guess my previous job spoiled me with 80 hours sick/80 hours vacation/3days personal vacation/1 floating holiday and summer days.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees the option to telecommute. Family is #1...adding additions to the campus (one stop shop) for employees is great, but if I could spend more time with my family instead of work and myself it would all be worth it.
