Former Employee - Manager in Kä‘anapali, HI

I worked at Starwood Hotels & Resorts full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Fast Paced, Great People to work with, Originally driven by making employees key to their success and that's what drove me as a Manager

Cons

Sr. Management driven by #'s and averages and not actual day to day business needs. Especially when it came to the associates.. was constantly told that I was not trusted, and only cared about the reports and #'s and not about the individuals that were working for them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the employees needs foremost and the #'s will be made and exceeded

    I have been working at Starwood Hotels & Resorts full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - great opportunities for growth
    - many training opportunities
    - transferable experiences
    - strong training and on boarding

    Cons

    - if you want to grow your career, be single, no children and ready to slave yourself out and move at the drop of a hat
    - horrible hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    overall, very strong company, but there has to be more structure to keep employees from aging years before their time. the business does take it out of you hard
