    Pros

    Great place to work in Florida. Company was very good to me and let me learn the ropes of the finance world

    Cons

    Pretty hard to move up. They have a core of people who just are there and move up. Not too much to complain though

    Advice to Management

    Make easier to move up in company, less on seniority and more on productivity would be key I feel to advancing the company to the next level

    Pros

    You get to travel all the time. Great way to save money as you have no expenses on board. Free room and board!!!

    Cons

    Food isn't the best that they provide you. The room is quite small and you share it with someone else. Management never listens to your ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to people and actually care about what they say. They are the ones doing all the real work around the ship.

    Pros

    Strong brand with good benefits (including cruise). Treats employees fairly well with many sponsored company events throughout the year and onsite day care and clinic. the large size of the company offers many opportunities to develop valuable skills in different areas of the business.

    Cons

    A good company to come into from the outside, but moving internally is much more difficult. Internal mobility will require many years of commitment and pay increases will be minimal. Annual raises are very small as well. Some areas are rife with politics and have high attrition. Good work culture is a blessing and a curse as it's very easy to become too comfortable and stop growing.

    Advice to Management

    Offer better career paths for loyal employees. A lot of knowledge is lost, or goes to the competition when they leave.

  11. Enjoyed working there. Made many good friends. Your enjoyment depends on the department and your supervisor.

    Pros

    Great benefits including cruises. If you luck out on bosses you've got it made.

    Cons

    Hard to get on ships if you're new. Different departments give raises, bonuses differently.

    Advice to Management

    Keep stressing open door policy.
