    Honestly, I can't think of.any one thing I could call a minus.

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at Omni Hotels full-time

    Pros

    Steady work, lots of variety. Good co-workers. Very inexpensive meals in the cafeteria. Open to new ideas and processes to help you do your job. Decent benefits, health ins. is expensive like everywhere else. 2 weeks vac after one year. Uniforms provided. They will work with you to accomodate reasonable scheduling requests.

    Cons

    Management is a little detached from day-to-day activities. Procurement of supplies/tools seems to take forever as it goes up the chain of management. Pay is on the low side even as the company is proud of how much money it makes. Bonuses or other incentives would be nice. There are metrics and dept goals but no real incentives other than your own desire to do a great job. A pat on the back is nice but it doesn't pay the bills.

    I have been working at Omni Hotels full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful work setting. Employee discounts in restaurants and shops.

    Cons

    Do not even pay a living wage. Long hours with little or no personal life and very demanding.

    Advice to Management

    Don't always discount people over 40. There are many employees with years of experience and wisdom that are ignored because of their age.

    Pros

    Meet a lots of people and get paid what you're worth. (personality, etc). Flexible hours and easy to work with the team. The Guest Services manager position is a rough one, in my 2 years at Omni i had 4 managers.

    Cons

    You're the errand boy for multiple departments, its really not that big of a deal depending on what kind of employee you are but, this takes you away from guests usually and that mean less tip money.

    I worked at Omni Hotels full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits and job opportunities. Good room discount at participating properties.

    Cons

    Absolutely no work life balance for middle management. They'll work the tread right off of ya!

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your older properties and stop putting band-aides on your PMS Systems. You rely solely on your employees and react slowly to new innovation in the industry. The bigger problem with the Omni Concept is that the owner sees it as a hobby and a cash cow. Unlike J.W. Marriott or Conrad Hilton, those guys were hoteliers. They lived and breathed the business. It was nothing to them to show up at one of there properties unannounced. As a matter of fact the only positive from a mid-management level is that you would know when corporate was coming!
