I have been working at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Growing company
Different culture: not necessarily trendy or completely corporate

Cons

Promotional options seem to be biased towards anyone that DIDN'T go to school in Boston !!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have excellent people within your organization that are looking to grow and develop. Work with them, and give clear guidance as to why as opposed to why not!!
