    Pros

    Fantastic company, really easy to progress your career with Fairmont - you need to perform in order to do so though, it's not a given. If you are open to relocating with the USA/Canada or internationally there is much assistance and support at management level.

    Cons

    Fairmont is a management company, each hotel is different based on the GM, Executive Team and ultimately owners.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Interview your boss! Ensure you've asked the questions about management style, flexibility, accountability - know what is expected of you.
