I worked at Waldorf Astoria full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great place to learn, strong name to have on your resume and competitive salary (Managers start @ $50K and can easily progress to $60K). Awesome mentorship opportunities and a real fun challenge if you're up for it.

Cons

Super long hours, very fast paced and stripped down staff-to-guest ratio at every level of the organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust in managers to make decisions, less micromanaging.

    Pros

    If tou do not wish to learn, be respected, given a raise, have your managers support then its perfect.at the hotel they pride themselves on being five star and open door policies, and good benefits, if you like walking contradictions I say go for it.

    Cons

    No communication. I have to say this there are two capable very reliable trustworthy manager in my department. This two alone almost make up for our chef and sous chef. This job is not a matter of skill but more based on gender, age, and how much you stroke the egos of your elders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try communicating, less gossip, no insults, and having your employees backs. You do nothing alone. Try team building activities. Or for starters try showing up to tour own department meetings.
