I worked at Hyatt full-time (more than a year)

Pros

The benefits are incredible. When I worked there each associate was eligible to stay in any property up to three consecutive nights free of charge. Great health insurance, free meals while you're working. In the time I worked there I got a new position with the company, each a promotion, once a year. You can rise up through the ranks as quickly or as slowly as you desire as long as you're willing to move around a bit.

Cons

Limited to no opportunity for business travel. Getting to a respectable salary can take many years of rising through the ranks. After two years with the company, I was making only $12.50 per hour in a supervisor-level position. Had I had a similar position at another hospitality or retail establishment I'd probably be making closer to $15-20. High turnover meant we were constantly training, low starting pay meant we always had trouble filling positions with qualified individuals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Show your employees the money. They likely won't turn over as quickly if you do, and you'll have a deeper pool to pick from.

    I worked at Hyatt full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You get the opportunity to meet a lot of international people, and learn a great deal about hospitality

    Cons

    there's no room for movement. I tried so often to transfer to a different position, and it never happened. i finally gave up and didn't even want to work there any more

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees. There's a lot of talent there and people willing to work hard. If you don't help them, they can't help you, and the company overall will suffer.
