    Pros

    This company wants to see results, yes. But they truly try to offer you every piece of insight and help they can to get you to your next goal. I see no nepotism, no favoritism. If you show passion and endurance, you have a team to help you succeed.

    Cons

    Smaller company so constant direction is unattainable. That's also a good thing though. They allow you to run your property and if need be make mistakes and learn from them.

    Advice to Management

    More properties please!

    Pros

    I work here because of location and proximity close to where I live but looking for other opportunity elsewhere.

    Cons

    Management put priority on guests 1st and employees last. No growth opportunity for advancement and they treat employees like disposable and they don't value or appreciate hard work from employees. Low wages with no benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Management need to appreciate and recognize the staff team members hard work.

    Pros

    It feels like family because it is really a team of people working together to accomplish goals. The new hotels and continued growth is exciting because it presents more opportunity. You have the ability to make your mark and try new things if you choose to make the effort. The people really make this company a great place to work.

    Cons

    It's hard work and there are high expectations for results. But it wouldn't be worth doing otherwise!

    Pros

    I can honestly say the best thing about working for an OTO Hotel (Hyatt Place) would be our guests. Nothing else!

    Cons

    management is crap! They don't care about their workers which is front desk, housekeeping, Houseman, maintenance, everyone! We don't have human resource on site, there's a lot of favoritism, discrimination and no type of recognition. Not one thank you! The general manager is a nice guy but does not know one thing about working for this hotel which makes it difficult for the actual assistant manager to do his job because he has to do the general managers job as well! Since the assistant manager can't do his job we have to do his job plus our job plus everyone else isn't doing their job because management can't discipline. Another thing is that every time you try to talk to the general manager or assistant manager about a problem they can't help you or they have an attitude. It seems like the front desk is running the hotel and for the crappy pay they give us, it's to much work. Even guests complain about management and instead of OTO looking into it, they do NOTHING! I can keep on going on how HORRIBLE it is to work for this company but it would be a never ending story. They are waiting for a lawsuit to get them!

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to ACTUALLY MANAGE! Appreciate your employees and MAYBE then you will have a successful hotel and make way more money with happy employees.

    Pros

    beautiful hotels. some, more like few, at corporate are incredible and really truly care about the company. o

    Cons

    COO is a very unprofessional person. cares only about himself. Does't care about the team at all. HR is a joke. Nothing is confidential or objective. Turnover is outrageous and there is so much pressure to perform that it's focus is all about dollars and could care less about team members...because "everyone can be replaced"...well, replace the COO. CEO is a great person but perhaps focused too much on development and growth and not involved anymore in daily operation. COO covers things up so it doesn't reach CEO. They talk the talk but never walk the walk

    Advice to Management

    Get a new Executive Leadership Team, from COO, to VP of HR to Regional Directors. Too self centered.

    Pros

    You're able to assume a lot of responsibility quickly and to see the results from your efforts. I like the autonomy to run my own organization and there are great people in the company who help me get things done. The company continues to grow and there are lots of opportunities if you live or can move to the places where the growth is happening.

    Cons

    The investors are pretty tight with cash for rewarding management and employees.

    Pros

    New Hotels, they work with great hotel brands such as Hyatt, Marriott, Hilton.

    Cons

    They don't appreciate their employes, the "open door" policy doesn't work, low pay for line associates.

    Advice to Management

    Doesn't matter if the Hotels are new and beautiful if the associates are unhappy the guests are going to be disappointed (Hospitality 101)
