    I have been working at Waldorf Astoria

    Pros

    If tou do not wish to learn, be respected, given a raise, have your managers support then its perfect.at the hotel they pride themselves on being five star and open door policies, and good benefits, if you like walking contradictions I say go for it.

    Cons

    No communication. I have to say this there are two capable very reliable trustworthy manager in my department. This two alone almost make up for our chef and sous chef. This job is not a matter of skill but more based on gender, age, and how much you stroke the egos of your elders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try communicating, less gossip, no insults, and having your employees backs. You do nothing alone. Try team building activities. Or for starters try showing up to tour own department meetings.
