    I worked at Fairmont Hotels & Resorts full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Pretty much managing 5-6 positions at a time. Really good for college students or recent grads looking to get a lot of hours in. Definitely built my interpersonal skills and taught me how to do heavy multitasking.

    Cons

    They sometimes overwork you, but that's expected in a laborious position like this.

    Pros

    Growing company - the company is still building new properties and acquiring hotels

    Cons

    Lack of office culture due to everybody being so busy all the time, no motivation to have friends in the office because everybody is always working, I have no friends in the office

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More team building, less team meetings
