    I worked at MSC Cruises full-time

    Pros

    great atmosphere, for a working environment. co-workers are great people. you do get benefits, and pay is ok , grat break rooms various opportunity to grow just be aware of favoritism if you feel you deserve a position i say go for it and prove that. otherwise favorites will be your eye catcher. great location, awesome company shirts

    Cons

    no company is perfect, if this is something for you, then i ay go for it, just keep in mind t comes with a lot of bumps in the road when wanting to grow. you are your own person so just do worry about your growth and with this company it may work in your best behave. training is not as effective, they lack training skills for new on board workers, its like they are finding out on their own. not much consideration in outside candidates.

  6. "International, growing company"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at MSC Cruises full-time

    Pros

    Despite being already a large company, it's growing even more quickly. There's an ambitious expansion plan for the next years, with several upcoming new ships. This keeps things exciting. Easy going environment (at least in Naples), friendly colleagues. International environment (especially in Geneve). Free coffee and water, discounted cruises for employees.

    Cons

    The Headquarters (in Geneve) and the largest office of the Service Provider (in Naples) work closely but are located miles away, this does not always help with the everyday activities. The company grew a lot in the recent years, so (in some aspects) it is still developing as a fully structured corporate.

    I have been working at MSC Cruises full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    MSC building and Stockley Park, pleasant surroundings

    Cons

    There is a culture of bullying, Management aways asking staff if they are unhappy, but if they dare say yes or criticise the regime, they are dismissed or hounded out of their job! They will let you stay if you play games in the morning, say nothing and just do as they want, without questioning. There is a lack of support, except if you are a favourite. The practise of exclusion and discrimination is commonplace here, and all of our lovely and best staff have left.
