Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Hurtigruten full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great product. Amazing onboard experience. Great NPS. The concern with the environment is not a publicity stunt but a a mandatory lifestyle approach if you want to work here. No micro management in... my team.

Cons

Upper management is not to be seen. They try to seel the Scandinavian flat structure approach but would not be seen dead next to you for lunch.... Local office heads are far from the leader type.... Huge problems with employee engagement and team communication. London office has a very poor dynamic. No place to grow. Progression is almost impossible. Salaries are low in the UK office. Big difference in salaries (Heads earn almost 3x more than members of their teams)

Advice to Management

More investment in training, better communication from management. Salaries more in line with what is paid in Norway.

Current Employee - Photographer

I have been working at The Ship's Photographer full-time for more than a year

Pros

- Get to see the world, i was lucky enough to get on a world cruise and a South America cruise and the office are very fair in accommodating your needs. If you have a specific ship or itinerary then... Nadine tries her best to get you were you want to be. - Have the most amazing experiences with everyday being different. - You don't need to be the best photographer to do this job as training is carried out on bored regularly. In my case the manager did regular training sessions which are quite laid back and interactive. - You get a fair salary with the added bonus of private shoots and commission and cruise target commission (the more effort you put in the more you make). You don't pay for accommodation or food on board so thats good. - You get most ports off to be able to explore ... depending on the manager (most photo managers in the company are very fair and nice though) - The people you meet on ships are friends for life, i've met so many amazing people in the cruise industry - The company listen to things you have to say, you do regular feedback on your managers and you are made to feel important in the company, rather than just a number. I've been to meetings at the office with shoreside managers and they ask all employees on what can be done to improve life onboard and the business in general.

Cons

- Some days can be long hours and it is hard work, you have to be prepared to work and i think some people forget its not a vacation (but thats just the nature of the cruise industry in general with... other departments being worse off) - Ship life in general can be a little difficult, its not everyones cup of tea ... i however love it, can't wait to get back to work and love the ship life experience - The job can be quite sales orientated which a few other photographers complain about, quite long hours can be spent in the gallery trying to sell things/up sell which for me in fine as i don't mind the gallery time - Most of these comments are about ships in general rather than the company itself, also all ships are different with different rules and officers enforcing different rules.
