Pros

Hyatt has great opportunities for growth and movement, as well as opportunities to stay in lovely properties for free. 12 nights (with some restrictions) per year are allotted as free per employee as a standard at most properties, and the ability to move up is abundant if you work your @ss off.

Cons

The Hyatt corporation is becoming a very high profile name in the industry by finally advertising, and standardizing training from property to property. Most management positions are dependent on a heavy workload and way too much to do in an 8 hour day if progress or growth is expected. And of course, it is.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't sacrifice guest service by cutting back on management. Training for management is lackluster and it comes across through the associates.

    Pros

    Good company with a good product. Opportunities for advancement within a couple of years, just be prepared to move around the country to do it. If you are a regular employee, you don't have much opportunity for advancement unless you want to move out of state.

    Cons

    They say they care about their employees, but they really don't. Managers are trained well enough to give their employees feedback or proper training. You need to fight to get a day off and justify that you were really on your "death bed" if you called in sick...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your middle managers and employees. They have the contact with guests, not you.
