    I have been working at Carnival Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Travel, see beautiful places which you never imagined to visit in your lifetime.
    Deliver service on fast track.
    Work with people coming from places you never heard before. Very diverse environment to work in.
    Sets an example to world, if we can leave together everyone else can. No need for Wars! Ethnic Riots!!
    Good care of team members, in house certified training for free, retirement benefits, on board medical, etc.

    Cons

    Some crew cannot get it right - the true team spirit and this can effect you and many others
    Salary is low, which is common in this industry (also depends on your position and where you come from - due to money exchange rates)

    I have been working at Carnival Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    After years of being in the contracting world I came to Carnival. Upon entering I was very impressed after hearing that many people there were over 5, 10, 20 and event more time with the company. Soon enough I realized that the environment and the culture were nothing like I had experience before. The company had very tangible offerings and the culture was very friendly to the people and their family. Albeit it being a very demanding and challenging environment, much effort was also put in helping one to succeed and grow in all areas.

    Cons

    5 words for Cons: none really.

    Pros

    Always up to date with technology without any training.

    Cons

    They are the most dirtiest people on the earth I have ever seen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to get trained on professionalism first and the most important thing. Then next.

    I worked at Carnival Corporation

    Pros

    Compensation, product was easy to sell, original refund policy made it very easy to sell as well.

    Cons

    Management not good once SVP of sales went to another cruise lines. Family feel went away. No support of employees. Very shady and unorganized management on most parts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to the values that the old SVP carried.
