Lacks Management

(Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsMost staff are very nice.

ConsManagers are amateurs. No mentoring, training, succession planning, or even reviews. Good employees either get lost in the shuffle or wake up and leave to find a company they can grow with. Poor employees go unnoticed or tolerated.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire stronger managers or take the time to train managers to be effective. Hold them accountable for their departments. Do not accept sub standard managers because the GM simply likes them. Have stricter guidelines in terms of developing people & product. If you want to play with the big boys you need to train like the big boys.

By the way, Stephen Brandman is no longer CEO. You need to update your post...

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    When I was hired I thought Hotel Kabuki was a great place to work, but now I'm not too sure.
