    I worked at Carnival full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great office, good people, great product and interesting industry

    Cons

    CIO is amazing politician but terrible leader, breeding a culture of bullying, fear and inefficiency. Surrounded by smoke and mirrors it's credit to the CIO that the rest of the business put up with IT's terrible performance. The turn-over of IT staff is very high and particularly over the last 3 years with decades of good business experience walking, being pushed or thrown out of the door.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the CIO, rebuild culture in IT to be open and transparent.

    I worked at Carnival full-time

    Pros

    Nice offices.
    Good discount on product.

    Cons

    Leadership is disastrous. There are too many ‘accidental’ managers.
    Pay is low.
    Nothing can be changed. It’s accepted that projects can’t / won’t be delivered.
    Lack of basic competency in most areas. There are high barriers to entry for their market, but it’s difficult to see carnival at the top in 10-20 years.

    Pros

    Excellent work environment.. with a good management team

    Cons

    The only negative point is the salary structure... Which is very low compared to other cruise line
