I LOVE WORKING WITH MHG

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Morgans Hotel Group part-time

Pros

uplifting work environment. great benefits. opportunity to travel. organized training program. everybody I work with has a great, positive attitude; they are all committed to hospitality and customer service and a pleasure to be around.

Cons

if you want to love your job and let it be your life, you might be a great match for MHG. don't work for MHG if you want a 9-5 job that's separate from your personal life.

    Pros

    Beautiful properties, brand recognition, high paying relative to competitors, and pretty people.

    Cons

    Favoritism abounds, ineptitude goes unpunished, leadership is noticeably absent, with vast numbers of them "working" from home. No accountability, and full of under qualified talent that is overpaid to make up for the terrible work environment.

    Constant bickering amongst stockholders, threats of sale of the company, and churn of senior leadership trickles down. Average lifespan in ops/leadership/sales/marketing seems to be 1-2 years tops.

    Hypocritical behavior permeates, with company moto's like "communicate communicate communicate" meanwhile most news of the state of the company during a hostile takeover of the board, ousting of the CEO, loss or publicly viewed legal and financial jeopardy of virtually every property signed in the past 5 years is all announced in the news before anyone in the company hears about it, and no directly is given on how to respond. During Hurricane Sandy, absolutely no information was sent out to any employee not on property for 1-3 days depending on the department.

    Phrases like "everyone is a housekeeper" meanwhile restaurants fail health department inspections, "renovations" are a laughable slather of paint, meanwhile the infrastructure of their properties are cheaply built, poorly managed, and jokingly "updated" during renovations.

    "Design" teams very headcount heavy, considering it takes 4 "designers" a week to open a bar at Hudson (Sky Terrace) that has not changed appearance in over 11 years.

    The company is alarmingly siloed, which for a company that is only 13, err no 12 (or wait is it 10 yet?), is ridiculous. F&B has its own marketing/design teams separate from hotel marketing.

    The company will not exist within 5 years. It will be sold, and everyone from the top to the bottom are aware. The difference lies in the roles being integral to the success of a property/hotel, vs a role that will ultimately be deemed redundant or unnecessary by a new owner.

    Ultimately, the law suits, exorbitant executive committee pay (68% of EBITDA revenue), and continuing year over year losses despite a doubling of revenue, are all signs of a dying company flailing for relevance in an economy and marketplace that no longer values it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify your mantra. What is an ethos, EDGE Ideal, Morgansim, and why are they all so long?

    I worked at Morgans Hotel Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Discounts to other hotels, co-workers were friendly, benefits such as dental and medical were nice, there was always some crazy event going on in the hotel

    Cons

    Upper management was hard to get a long with, high turnover, it felt like you were being watched every second, a lot of the hotel guests were either drunk, on drugs, or just rich jerks..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop writing up employees for every little thing they do. It seems like one little mistake gets blown out of proportion making it a hard environment to work in..
