    Pros

    If you work on Fisher Island in any capacity, you won't be able to ignore the beautiful setting. The island landscape is designed to resemble a kind of paradise, and you will likely have access to the golf carts--the preferred means of travel on the island, which are fun to jet around on. I found the hotel staff's pay to be about average for the corresponding positions. Most of the day-time front-room staff worked with the expectation that they would come by tips and commissions, which at times are sizable.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the employees live under constant fear of the Members/Owners of this private club, the people who populate the island. At it's worst, the culture is that of a slave plantation. If a member wants you to do something, no matter how far that thing falls outside of your job description, you are expected (by your direct superiors and coworkers alike) to do it. These members are the super rich and those desperately posing as such, and their treatment of the staff at times is inhumane. Some members are very lovely people, though (in fairness).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would have been not to fire all of the long-time employees who maintained the hotel's charm, but from what I've heard it seems it's too late for such advice.

    Pros

    Small Working Environment compared to other Hotels

    Cons

    Members request only certain waiters, which is ok ! Management change and do not make a fair rotation of waiters sections, some are very busy and some would just stand around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everybody fairly.

    Doesn't Recommend
