    Former Employee - Area Director of Revenue Management in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Area Director of Revenue Management in New York, NY

    I worked at Hersha Hospitality full-time (more than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
