Former Employee - Server in Phila, PA

I worked at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Health benefits for bar and restaurant
401k, etc for restaurant and bar staff
Good looking property
They WANT to care about you
Fun employees and team to work with(Obviously this is branch specific)

Cons

Health Benefits are terrible for restaurant side...unaffordable
Way too corporate, have 4-5 managers in suits actually drove some customers away
Don't care about employees as much as they claim they do, especially after two seminars per year about how much they care about employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Relax. Don't be so uptight, not to workers...but to customers. This was not a high-end restaurant, but a tavern-style setting, so customers were here to unwind and relax. Everything doesn't have to be by the book, that's not how life works.

    I worked at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants full-time

    Pros

    Great culture, smart collaborative environment and great hotel and restaurant perks! The company has been an innovator in the hospitality space and a dominant boutique hotel player -- which is becoming increasingly popular with travelers. Smart and approachable executive team.

    Cons

    The company has lost it's entrepreneurial spirit. It feels like a large company -- even though it's still a relatively small company

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

    Pros

    lots of growth from within the company, managers are encouraged to empower their team, overall a very young company full of fun people, middle- to lower-management positions are plentiful

    Cons

    very high expectations and comitment levels required of managers, pay isn't great - relatively low for the industry

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start investing more in the operations managers who run your properties day-to-day. They are the ones who really make the whole show happen. They're also usually overworked and underpaid.
