50% of the CEO
I have been working at Omni Hotels full-time for less than a year
Pros – Good training program for new hires. Managers are kind , knowledgeable and helpful. Enthusiastic co-workers who have been with company for several years. Overall positive environment. Company has invested many millions of dollars into refurbishing and enhancing existing resort on Amelia Island Florida. Company seems interested in providing opportunity for growth.
Cons – Employee premiums for health benefits are fairly high, but unfortunately this is a sign of the times.
Advice to Senior Management – None
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at Omni Hotels
Pros – This company has a lot of money behind it and will invest in a property to bring it up to a new level. It is expected that current employees be treated respectfully and their problems addressed so that corporate does not have to get involved. They have some good recognition programs and the bi-monthly employee meetings are fun and motivating.
Cons – Communication is very poor. NO ONE knows what is going on so rumors are rampant. Meetings are scheduled and cancelled and the standard for department meetings are monthly. A new employee can start without orientation and be lost until they are finally brought in for it. After this, training and development is focused managers. And unfortunately, the company shows preference to the promotion and selection of younger managers.
There are a lot of policies and procedures you will sign an acknowledgement for, but good luck seeing a comprehensive employee handbook. Much of it will be shared randomly as issues arise. You will be told how to do things by the property's management team, but when corporate comes to visit, you hear something different. And rules apply to some but not others. Standards are supposedly strict, but then you will see corporate and other members of management doing something different (grooming, hanging out on property, etc.) Very confusing.
Advice to Senior Management – If you did everything you say on paper, communicate more from the top down and laterally, and offer more useful training to all, it would be so much better.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
