No opinion of CEO

Pros

They offer some pretty decent benefits, including a week of complimentary room stay at most of their hotels. Pay is also pretty good, and the human resources office is great.

Cons

Most of the managers are completely incompetent and poorly trained. They micromanage your every move, criticize often and rarely praise good performance. When it comes to personal life (school, children, etc), the hotel will not help make any adjustments for you. Being 1 minute late will get you a write-up, even with a legitimate excuse. Also, any suggestions given to management at any level to make the workplace run more smoothly are almost never implemented.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees and help them do their job, they are the ones responsible for the hotel's success.

    Focus on the middle managers, a lot of time and enrgy spento on making sure associates are happy and engaged and senior managers are rewarded with a bonus, the middle managers, Dept heads and assts work really hard and should be recognized too

    Pros

    There is the opportunity to transfer within departments at the hotel if you are still discovering your ultimate career path. If you already know your ultimate career goal, there are specific paths identified to help you reach those goals. You can move to different hotels around the country or around the world, and they pay relocation costs to do so.

    Cons

    The hours can be long, and there is stiff competition for the best positions. They are not known to have the best pay scale in the industry, but are known instead as a training ground where you learn the skills necessary to move to another hotel chain with higher pay.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the career aspirations of new managers, and be prepared to discuss career directions and potential with them.
