    Be fair

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat work environment, worked with mostly career minded professionals. High quality product for food and service. Nice diversity among the staff

    ConsUnfortunately there is a lot of pettiness. Most of it is rewarded as opposed to discouraged. Backstabbing is commonplace here

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe fair

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Leadership.

    Conference Services Coordinator (Former Employee) Myrtle Beach, SC

    ProsProfessional growth, positive work environment, team-oriented.

    ConsKingston Plantation property has competing bottom lines between Hilton Sales and Culinaire. Produces conflict.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReevaluate how budgets are projected. Put in the hands on Director of Catering/Conference Services vs. Food and Beverage.

    A company that needs a huge overhaul.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros--Good support at the National Sales level
    --Because most locations are small you are exposed to many different roles/responsibilities
    --Salary was acceptable when compared to industry standard

    Cons--Very little respect from Senior Management
    --Work life vs. Personal life balance is not respected (in any role)
    --Senior management is often very disrespectful of lower level management and front line staff
    --Diversity is not valued
    --The company as a whole is slow to adopt new technology and some areas are completely resistant.

    Advice to Senior Management--Embrace new technology and the new work style which allows people to work in an environment that best suits them for maximum productivity.
    --Don't be afraid of new ideas; there are new methods of training, implementing and fostering new talent and ideas that really are worthwhile.
    --TRAINING, TRAINING, TRAINING: increase initial training and make constant training available.
    --Review your diversity policies and make them more inclusive.
    --VALUE your staff. A little goes a long way to retaining talent rather than dealing with the excessive amount of turnover you currently face.
    --Above all else, find a way to review your senior staff's performance in a neutral way to find out the REAL truth about what is happening at each of your properties. What happens at the site and what is reported is most of the time not the same.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
