    Not worth the effort

    Server (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsCustomers tip well and the tools are there for you to use to make money.

    ConsAVOID THE MORNING STAFF AT ALL COST!!! These people are too impractical, overly sensitive, and poorly managed. Customer complaints are high, turnover is high, and management is not available during your shifts because of an inability to keep talented new hires. Most people have only worked there about a year (not the case for the much more organized night shift), and then they run for the hills (myself included) and leave the negativity behind. My advice, get your experience on your resume and then GET OUT before they make you feel obligated to stay.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Does the Taj know who they are in the US market?

    Front Desk Agent (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsThe company is just beginning to develop its hotels in the US market. They are aggressive with their promotions of younger leaders, you will find a great deal of the junior management is under the age of 28. This is promising for hospitality professionals eager to get a jump start on their careers. There are also numerous possibilities to transfer and visit their properties they own abroad.

    ConsThe hotel being new into the US market, must find its place. Brand identity is a crucial deciding factor for many hotel guests, and if they have never heard of you, chances are they are not going to pay top dollar. The Taj Hotel Company must establish themselves in the US market as a luxury hotel by some sort of intensive PR campaign.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAs with most Senior Management, listen to your line employees. They speak to guests on a daily basis. They will be able to give you ideas and fuel your thoughts towards positive places for your business. Invest in training, it will pay off in the future.

    Great Place to work!!

    Human Resources Professional (Former Employee) Mumbai (India)

    ProsExcellent Emotional Connect with Employees.
    Polished work culture
    Good employee welfare program: Birthday Lunches, Executive Holiday Plan etc.

    ConsPoor Salary
    Decisions are people driven and not process driven
    Lots of importance given to hierarchy. There is a lot of person specific bias and loyalty is rewarded more than performance. The ability to relate to the Gen Y workforce is limited

    Advice to Senior ManagementReduce the number of levels in the organisation and stop making person specific decisions. Focus on promoting performance and try to embed a performance driven culture rather than a tenure or loyalty driven career structure.
