    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Kempinski Hotels S.A. full-time

    Pros

    Nice and glitzy on the outside

    Cons

    If you are not part of the Old Boys Club starting at the top who are more interested in smoking cigars, chasing young girls and filling their own pockets with all sort of side deals (which are even ripping off the Owners) you will not make a career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real and identify REAL talents who came thru the ranks and support those instead of showing off to low rank employees about how great the company is. A very short-lived attitude.
