    Pros

    Company is just the right size. Big enough to make a difference and small enough to make it unique.

    Cons

    Limited local growth with full service opportunities. Mostly limited service coming into the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep hiring the right people

    I have been working at InterContinental Hotels Group as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    The kind of people you find at IHG are team oriented and have fun together. Attitude and moral is kept high, and you feel like you are a part of something special.

    Cons

    Cons are communication break downs between the business teams and the technology teams.

    Once was a great company that appreciated people. Now it is all about the numbers.

    I have been working at InterContinental Hotels Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Rich corporate culture (Winning Ways), most of management really cares about their people. Internal promotion.

    Cons

    Company doesn't have much focus as we are trying to run too quickly and implement before we are ready. Too much focus on numbers and not necessarily quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to the basics. Stop hiring people who care more about the numbers and not much about service. Focus on really being #1 for our guests, owners and colleagues. Really pay attention to our Winning Ways and making sure that we are focusing on that AND Winning. Seems like Winning is the focus.

    Pros

    there are no pros to working here

    Cons

    There is no support from management. Everything is looked over and nothing happens. Managers hold a do what is say not as I do attitude. Very disappointing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider supporting the people who keep you in business. Shame on you for doing nothing when things are so very wrong

    I have been working at InterContinental Hotels Group part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company culture, perks and hotel discounts, good high-status business clientele, pay servers $4.50 way over the minimum wage… I like most everyone who works there including upper management

    Cons

    Some months are slower than others, which is why they have the rate at $4.50 I think...
