    Pros

    Because Mandarin Oriental is a niche luxury service that caters to the high end client, the pay is good (slightly above average for the Industry) and so are the health benefits. The organization also offers comprehensive, ongoing training to further develop the talent of its employees.

    Cons

    Because one of the core values of the company is returning value to shareholders, the bottom line on its balance sheet is the Company's most prized asset. So job security is not something that can be assured, regardless of individual performance, as cost cutting is a priority for Executive Management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While cost controls are a legitimate area of focus for any enterprise in order for it to be successful far too much emphasis is placed on cost cutting for the near term which, in turn, diminishes the value of the ongoing, in house training that is provided to the employees. More emphasis should be placed on investment through human capital and less on the fiscal projections for the upcoming quarter.
