Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Lot's talented leaders still within the individual business units

Cons

Kimpton's home office leadership is absent and no longer connects with it's employees. This is what made the company special and without it Kimpton is mediocre at best. There is little to no direction or vision and despite the feedback there is no attempt at improvement. Sad to watch.

Advice to Management

Look in the mirror and clean house.

    I worked at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants part-time (More than a 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 Management

    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.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The company boasts some of the best benefits out there and has been rated one of the top places to work for years.

    Cons

    The excellent benefits are made difficult to access, such as hotel discounts, flex spending, and upward mobility is not as easy as advertised.
