    I worked at Loews Hotels

    Pros

    Nice working environment. Good people. Free meals while on shift. Location is stunning. Management gets to know you even when you're just temping.

    Cons

    Wish they would have tried to keep me once I decided to move to a new job elsewhere. Really liked working there. :(

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You keep doing what you're doing.

    I worked at Loews Hotels part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Worked in a Loew's Hotel for 2 and half years. Easily a great introduction to the hospitality world. Every week management would roll out a new quirky team building event. Employees were fed well. Understanding and forgiving management is a huge plus.

    Cons

    Work-life balance isn't terrible however kitchen staff often stayed later than scheduled which isn't that unusual. Incentives to improve are talked up but in reality nearly entirely neglected. Huge lack of inter-departmental communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hear the needs of your employees, keep the staff happy and customers will undoubtedly notice.

    It's a nice place to work for. The management and team members are friendly. Awesome benefits, you get to stay on other resorts for $50,$75 a night and free entrance to Universal Studios Orlando, Sea World and Bush Garden.

    Low pay for all the work you do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You shouldn't tell your employees you are going to promote them and then leave them hanging.

    I worked at Loews Hotels full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Compensation was above the market scale.

    Cons

    Lack of training or any real sense of the company culture, outdated technology and inefficient work procedures, inadequate medical benefits, poor leadership at both the corporate and hotel levels, unstable work force with high turnover in both management and hourly positions, horrible work/life balance, unrealistic financial performance expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The cons I mentioned would be a great place to start. If I had another recommendation, it would be to get back to basics. Treat your employees the way you aspire to treat your guests.
