    Pros

    Comp rooms- 12 nights a year! Also, free lunch in the employee cafeteria. Excellent benefits package.

    Cons

    Long hours; management level expected to work a minimum 47.5 hour work week. This company also pushes you to move frequently in order to advance your career.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the moving requirement! It is very costly and does not promote a family friendly work place.

    Pros

    Great benefits! Free nights at any Hyatt after a year of working. The properties are usually nice and decorated handsomely.

    Cons

    A lot of responsibility for relatively low pay. Little space to grow in a security department, many properties do not have supervisor or manager security positions.

    Advice to Management

    Employee engagement is pretty good. Good programs to highlight good work by employees. Our department suffers with lacking equipment needed to do our job. A lot of emphasis on watching the CCTV system when the system is very outdated and not effectively fulfilling its role.

    Pros

    Great benefits, awesome pay, attentive management, and family environment. The Hyatt is part of many things to help Denver.

    Cons

    Don't care for nights to much, being a single father inhibits the ability to spend time with my kids.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    Love Hyatt's family atmosphere. They do tend to hire from within and there are lots of opportunities for advancement. Hyatt is also a firm believer in cross-training so it's a great environment if you are looking to change your career focus from rooms management to sales to food and beverage.

    Cons

    Definite line between hourly and salaried employees. One needs to have a certain personality in order to handle some of the extreme personalities of guests expecting to be wowed by a 4-star hotel.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your hourly employees feel as "at home" as your salaried employees. Spread the bonus opportunities to hourly employees outside of the front desk.
