I have been working at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Amazing benefits, great working environment, my coworkers feel like family. I am always allowed to be myself and I am pushed to be the best I can be. There is lots of opportunity for growth within the company and they really focus on promoting from within. Plus, the hotels are amazing!

Cons

Hours are not flexible. Work life balance could be better. I don't think I could have a family and work here. That's a pretty big issue...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep being the innovative company that we all love. Be flexible and open to new ideas.

    I worked at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company is a great place to work if you are social, lively, and enjoy a fast paced work environment. Most offices let you bring your dog to work and they focus on team building and having fun on the job.

    Cons

    Extremely gay friendly company, so if your values do not match up, you will not fit in. The Directors have also been on the lazy side and give their sales team unrealistic goals.

    I worked at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants full-time

    Pros

    Creative, mostly great and well informed clients

    Cons

    Random, disorganized, inconsistent, employee experience too much dependent on GM's values, likes and dislikes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have company-wide documented policies and procedures, documented company-wide standards for both hourly employees and managers, reflected and followed through via employee evaluations. Roll out promotions with details and logistics communicated to properties prior to selling, establish and indicate communication and resources channels for those promotions. Have an email address / text message number / web page feature for employee anonymous feedback/reporting with an appropriate follow up.
