NYC Office is unorganized, unprofessional, petty and regressive.

Pros

Received NYC & multi-brand experience.

Cons

Regional Operations team is underqualified for positions. Office atmosphere is extremely political, male-dominated and fosters a toxic work environment. Support from Regional Operations and VP of Revenue Management does not exist; their behavior is subversive and counterproductive - they will put their needs and desires above those of the company and their subordinates.

Advice to Management

Take time to listen to employees, this will be most helpful in identifying core problems. Give HR the necessary training so they have the tools to enable them to deal with these issues. Recognize that some of the people in upper-management roles may not be fit for said role, despite the time they have invested with the company. The company itself seems to be moving in the right direction, while the NYC office maintains a very narrow-minded view of the overall picture.

    Pros

    Health Insurance but very expensive and some promotion within

    Cons

    Do not treat employees fairly; Do not give raises on timely fashion.
    Managers are really bad at providing their staff any time of information

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect and listen to their opinions and maybe you will have a better outcome.
    Do not side with General Managers they will always say what you want to hear. Upper Management should check on properties more often so they can actually see what is really going on at the hotels.
