    Pros

    Training - The Oberoi Mumbai Offers extensive training which can actually help you understand your job well, the occasional employee engagement activities helps ease the daily work stress

    Moolah.!! - If you are a fresher, The Oberoi Mumbai has the highest compensation (In Mumbai)

    Experience - The Oberoi group is not that wide spread internationally but they do know how to treat their guests and deliver world class services,

    Career opportunities - The Oberoi Group has its own school (The Oberoi Center for Learning and Development) which is world renowned and excellent, if you manage to get through (and survive) they offer paid internship for 2 years and you graduate as a assistant manager. ( your short cut in your career ladder)

    Cons

    Management - well as i mentioned above the oberoi has seen the most youngest managers & senior managers which again leads to poor judgement and decision making while handling operations.

    New Procedures - I've witnessed a new S.O.P's sprout almost every month which causes a lot of problems during service delivery. Also the methodology and training provided for a new procedure is very vague and not accurate.

    Work Culture - As compared to the actual work the employees a subjected to unnecessary s tress and extended working hours (ever seen a 20 hour shift? :) )

    Career Prospect - As i mentioned The Oberoi Group offers excellent career opportunities to candidates who are admitted to the Oberoi School but the unfortunate part is these opportunities are limited to these candidates only, also the Oberoi School seems to change their age perquisite every year (last year it was 25 years this year its 24)
    So if you are a Oberoi employee your changes for making it to middle management are slim to none.

    Advice to Management

    I believe The Oberoi group should really invest in their "Most Valuable Asset" - Manpower, should find better ways to retain employees and make the work atmosphere conducive for smooth functioning.
