  1.  

    Excellent culture and workplace environment!

    I worked at InterContinental Hotels Group

    Pros

    Very collegial workplace environment and excellent team oriented culture. IHG as a whole was a very pleasant work experience, even as a contractor.

    Cons

    Management direction always seemed to be in flux, don't know if it was a temporary situation, but it seems that decisions kept getting delayed, leaving us in a sort of limbo at times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more decisive, implement strategies in smaller time increments or stages. Clearer chains of command and responsibility would be helpful. Otherwise, great leadership!

    Pros

    Gained a lot of experience working here. Depending on which property you work at you can earn some great bonuses if you sell a lot. Pretty good PTO and work like balance.

    Cons

    Upper management was sometimes difficult to work with. There was a lot of micro managing at my property.

    I worked at InterContinental Hotels Group

    Pros

    Company takes care of their employees, making sure there is a work/life balance. Within IT, individuals are kept up to date on decisions which impact employees. Treat contractors with the same respect as FTE's

    Cons

    Sometimes employees would stay on longer than they should due to management not wanting to handle the situation. Alot of FTE meetings throughout the year which took away from production.

    I have been working at InterContinental Hotels Group

    Pros

    I have enjoyed my 3 plus years working with IHG at two different locations. Both hotels always had clear communication from the top and received the funding they needed.

    Cons

    Benefits were not always consistent, such as the employee rates or friends and families rates.

    Pros

    Very interesting clientele, fun atmosphere, very steady business wise.

    No meal/break times for front desk. Had to take "working breaks/meals" especially on 2nd shift when I was the only person in the hotel.
