    Pros

    Fairmont offers a lot of opportunity for growth within the company, whether it be with the property you currently are employed or at another property elsewhere. Also, Fairmont prides itself on providing top notch customer service and they truly do.

    Cons

    For me I would have to say the only downside of working for Fairmont Pittsburgh is that it is a new hotel that has not even been open for one whole year. There for there have been a lot of kinks to work out resulting in a higher than average turnover rate for the hotel industry.

    Advice to Management

    I would focus on lowering employee turnover rather than other side projects just in this beginning year of being open.
