Pros

- Its mission and values are for real. Hospitality and operational experience permeate everything. Work is clearly related to impact - no science fairs. - Went private in 2006 and de-constructed, so it has a real feel of starting new. Alot to do.

Cons

- After restructuring, staff recovered but executive didnt. Protective, defensive non-collaborative culture. - Tight budgets and very limited staffing. Hard to believe it's size can function with so few people. As a result, there's alot of talk and not much action. - Hospitality and respect values have a dark side: Politeness replaces accountability for performance or behavior.

Advice to Management

1. Clarify who is in charge. Blackstone management (Hilton's owner) is more involved and influential than Nasetta (CEO) and the have a very different set of priorities. 2. The untold cost of the Mckinsey outsourcing strategy is already understood by large companies. Reassess and remedy.

    Pros

    The hotel was recently acquired by a new company. There are high hopes that the new owners will make needed repairs to the hotel, as well as create a more employee-friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    Current owners of hotel have neglected maintenance to the point the hotel is falling apart in many areas. Owners do not seem to have the employees in mind concerning the work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Provide complimentary coffee for guests during the wee hours of the morning. Provide a shuttle for the guests to nearby attractions, and the airport.
