Excellent environment, camaraderie and benefits; bureaucracy-based (not performance-based) career opportunities

Pros

For Hyatt Hotels in Asia (not in N.A. or EU where the standards are much lower)
-Excellent work place for systems, training, camaraderie
-Good benefits and advantages, lots of emphasis on employee well-being
-Salaries are below market competitors in most locations but other benefits are better

Cons

-Regardless of your performance, sales, meeting & exceeding guest expectations and numbers required, you will go nowhere unless you are personally liked by regional head office.
-The system is well-known as: kiss head office key people's rear's end or never move forward. Hard-working, well-achieved fellows who do not share the kiss-butt culture are stuck for years in same properties with no upward chances.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When the layer of a few key, self-admiring, narcissist personal-approval addicts based in ASPAC office have retired, what will you do with the massive exodus of talent at the excom and GM level you are already experiencing all over? Shangri-la, Marriot, Sheraton's W to name a few are bleeding your top people out of your ranks to head expansions in China, India and other key locations.

    Pros

    Having Hyatt written in your CV is indeed an asset, and the environment is high demanding (due to the absolute lack of staff)

    Cons

    Working conditions were unacceptable, and material not sufficient and of low quality. Work itself got even more difficult due to the lack of assistance from the top management and the absolute lack of staff, which lead to an illegal amount of extra hours every day (which, by the way, do not get compensated anyhow afterwards). This company kept its employees only by threats and blackmailing.
    The employee accommodation offered was under the standards of what Hyatt is supposed to be, as well as food in the cantine.
