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

    Pros

    Profitable company with great opportunity and good salary and benefits package.

    Cons

    Poor assessment of resource needs and large lack of managerial skills from leadership. No guidance on expectations for performance appraisal, zero goal setting, unrealistic expectations without discussion and zero recognition of a person's sacrifice and complete lack of respect for their future.

    Advice to Management

    Understand your resource needs and commit to an employee's performance before making the decision to hire them. Hiring to then fire only shows lack of judgement on your part and complete disregard for a person's personal life. Take the time to be a leader, share your vision and organize your thoughts for a plan before firing from the hip and wasting your team's time by calling unstructured meetings.

    I worked at Royal Caribbean Cruises (More than a year)

    Pros

    Royal Caribbean offered me the opportunity to utilize a number of different skills working with a number of different departments on a daily basis. The most rewarding was the recognition and frequent promotions that I experienced moving from a shipboard career quickly up to management and then in to the shoreside office.

    Cons

    I found for me personally it was very hard to establish a work life balance. I was constantly traveling, which I LOVED, but it makes it very difficult to build a life. As well, Miami is a difficult town to move to and build a network if you are not originally from there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. I had a wonderful number of years there and would not change them for the world.
