    Pros

    Intercontinental Hotel Groups is fine to work for.

    Cons

    Working for a Franchise Company on the other hand that does not want to abide by policy and regulations is another.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to IHG is that they try and delegate better structure for the employees that have to deal with the in between Franchise Management aspect of it.

    Pros

    Great employees, even some great managers have come through the door unfortunately, they don't usually stay as they have the potential to making some great improvements to the Barclay instead of just creating another bullet point on their resumes.

    Cons

    High turnover of management, lack of shared important information between departments. Some managers where just awful they stayed a long time

    Advice to Management

    Be better at the hiring process, Good management comes in all shapes, sizes and nationalities

    Pros

    Good benefits: 401k, health insurance, hotel discounts. Just like everywhere else, there are good people to work for and not so great ones.

    Cons

    Didn't have many cons. The hotel I worked at was taken over by another management company and went downhill from there.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge both morning and evening staff members.

    Pros

    It's great to meet new people every day, IHG has a great rewards program that many people are loyal too.

    Cons

    No cons for IHG, everything is different depending on who or what management company owns your hotel.

    Advice to Management

    Don't play favorites, just because you are friends with someone doesn't mean that they are the right person for the job. Also, have a competitive salary, our management company is very stingy when it comes to compensation.

    Pros

    The people at the individual hotels are great.

    Cons

    Hotels are forced to purchase within an extremly limited set of vendors and to a very narrow set of guidelines. This causes more money to be spent on Product A, when it could be acquired for a lower price or a better quality from another company.

    Advice to Management

    Take more feedback from GM's.
