    I have been working at InterContinental Hotels Group as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    IHG is a great place to work. IHG strives to be the best place to work and creates a culture where people are free to be themselves, free to grow. They invest in their employees and offers a vast amount of opportunities and benefits.

    Cons

    The challenge for contractors to be come full time employees. This can keep contractors stagnate and limits their ability to grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Considering that this is a hospitality, I would make sure that the IHG model is implement for all employees regardless of employment status. Aim higher to make sure that all employees are reaching their maximum potential.

    Pros

    Fantastic company highly focused on employee engagement, satisfaction and growth

    Cons

    Having worked for IHG for many years, my only concern with the company is their tendency to change leadership. It seems that there are changes in upper management every 18-24 months which creates a trickle effect down the ranks disturbing momentum. The company has always been that way and doesn't appear to be changing.
