    Pros

    Ok place to start as a entry level if your supervisor/manager actually teaches and show you how to do serious tasks that well help you in your career instead of being stuck as a "accounting coordinator" and making wages a 20 year old couldnt live of, even if they lived at home with mom and dad with no bills.

    Cons

    Very low pay for the amount of work they give. They classified employees as "accounting coordinator " instead of accounts receivable, accounts payable, staff accountant, or anything else so they can pay you a lower wage even though you are doing all of these job titles that require a higher minimum pay.

    Advice to Management

    Actually read the surveys that hr gives the employees at these location. Visit the properties and see whats really going on and the issues these employees are having with these low wages and why and how these employees have issues with a lot of these supervisors who dont know how to talk to people.

    Pros

    great growth opportunity, you will learn a lot if you have no hospitality background and the people are usually great to work with

    Cons

    people grow too fast and there is not enough direction. You learn as you go and there is almost no training involved.

    Advice to Management

    get standards in order and make things black and white. Too many managers at multiple properties have 1 title but do 3 jobs. I understand you're trying to save money but an Executive Housekeeper should not be doing her job, and Accounts receivables, and something else outside of their job title.

    Pros

    There are always jobs available.

    Cons

    Above property management keeps getting more corrupt and extremely unprofessional. Poor communication. Feedback is inconsistent. Expectations constantly changing. Management changed regularly/very little consistency at this company. Pay is significantly less than other hotel management companies for the responsibility given.

    Advice to Management

    Follow High Hotels practice of requiring an in depth personality assessment when hiring employees. Care about who exactly you're putting in leadership roles.

    Pros

    It's a great place to work because everyone who works here is like family. We have been here way before Hersha was in charge. So we have stuck together.

    Cons

    The annual raise is only 3%. The company is really cheap when it comes to giving raises.

    Advice to Management

    If you are willing to pay your employees more then they will be happier at work. Which will result in hard work and great reviews for the hotel. Employee satisfaction is key to a successful business.

    Pros

    Great staff on property and amazing regional support. Love my property and the people I work with daily. No matter what is thrown at us, we get through it.

    Cons

    Corporate staff needs help in the Payroll and IT departments. Need to add more bodies and support for the properties in this area.

    Advice to Management

    Be proactive with hiring instead of reactive. Prepare for growth by hiring in departments that will need it instead of scrambling after the fact.

    Pros

    I can honestly not think of a single pro.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Promises of growth and ethics; hollow delivery. People who have been in company a long time dump blame and work on newer employees. No support. Honor in service? NOT

    Advice to Management

    Lack of sincere concern is evident. If you think everyone is beneath you, retire and leave the work to people who care. Politics only get you so far, and the high turnover and lack of employee happiness should tell you something.

    Pros

    There is nothing positive to say about this company except they give me a paycheck.

    Cons

    Where to start...the turnover is the highest I have ever seen! This company is money hungry and doesn't care about their employees whatsoever. Benefits are horrible, bonus structure is a rip off (that's if they even decide to pay the bonus) and the management is extremely dysfunctional.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like you want them to treat your guests!
