Upper Management is clueless. No real vision, no trust in their associates.

    I have been working at Hersha Hospitality as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The leaders are excellent at "talking the talk." They know how to excite a room and convince an audience of their promises. They can generate excitement.

    Cons

    They have a hard time delivering on their promises. They fail to back up their pitches with action. They manage their hotels from a place of fear. The proper supports do not exist, as the support team is young and inexperienced. The leader are all men (or close to men) and the support seem to be pretty young things; more of a dating pool. A "boys club" that bows down to the owners.

    There is a lot of talk about work life balance, but they work employees to death and then push them out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look closely at your regional and vp team. They are all covering each others' messes up. The revenue management and sales teams are not generating the revenue they could. And your operations teams are kept preoccupied acting as secretaries for the vps. Everyone is more concerned with giving the right answers. The love of hospitality is lost.

    Listen to your own speeches.
