    Poor management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe other employees are generally nice to work with.

    ConsThe hotel I worked for is poorly managed. Every employee hates it there. There are never enough supplies. Things simply always go wrong.

    Area Director of Revenue Management

    Area Director of Revenue Management (Former Employee) New York, NY

    Prosbest reasons to work here...none

    ConsCorporate office is unorganized and does not know anything about managing people much less hotels. They are a law suit waiting to happen. Never have I seen managers act in such a manner that is despairingly illegal. HR and VP's are a joke! This company is the worst I have ever seen or been anywhere near! I would not let my worst enemy work here! The managers at their hotels are hostile and demeaning to their employees as well as people in the corporate office. The VP's in the Philadelphia office are also demeaning to the employees. There is no communication, no morale report with the managers. This is a sweat shop for hotel workers. The door is constantly revolving!

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis company needs to get real managers. People who know how to actually manage others and keep morale up. They need to learn how to be a real company! Buying dozens of hotels doesn't make you a good company, it is the employees that you have who stay- no one stays here...says a lot about the company!

    I worked here for one year and left. Do not recommend this company

    Sales Manager (Former Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsThere dont seem to be too many. I guess the regional team that I worked with was nice although they all seemed to be a bit over their heads in the skills they have and the skills they need.

    ConsThis company is very "clicky" in that there are two groups. Either you're a long timer and are one of the "boys club" and everyone else. All of the people I talked to in the company tell me how hard it is to break into this click so many people leave after just a year like I did.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou should employ a feedback mechanism to get the employee's feedback. Then, you should be humble enough to hear us and react to the feedback.

    NYC Office is unorganized, unprofessional, petty and regressive.

    Area Director of Revenue Management (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsReceived NYC & multi-brand experience.

    ConsRegional Operations team is underqualified for positions. Office atmosphere is extremely political, male-dominated and fosters a toxic work environment. Support from Regional Operations and VP of Revenue Management does not exist; their behavior is subversive and counterproductive - they will put their needs and desires above those of the company and their subordinates.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake time to listen to employees, this will be most helpful in identifying core problems. Give HR the necessary training so they have the tools to enable them to deal with these issues. Recognize that some of the people in upper-management roles may not be fit for said role, despite the time they have invested with the company. The company itself seems to be moving in the right direction, while the NYC office maintains a very narrow-minded view of the overall picture.

    Do not recommend this company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Jamaica, NY

    ProsHealth Insurance but very expensive and some promotion within

    ConsDo not treat employees fairly; Do not give raises on timely fashion.
    Managers are really bad at providing their staff any time of information

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees with respect and listen to their opinions and maybe you will have a better outcome.
    Do not side with General Managers they will always say what you want to hear. Upper Management should check on properties more often so they can actually see what is really going on at the hotels.
