    Cons

    Remington has struggled slightly with its recent growth, but they have brought on new HR resources to enable managers and those that want to be future leaders of the company to grow both themselves and their departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to build up those that you see as future leaders of the company. Doing so will only secure Remington's future growth and success.

    Bottom-of-the-barrel company in the industry.

    I worked at Remington Hotels full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you are in good with your GM or DOS you can get comped rooms around the country. Other managers and co-workers have each others back.

    Cons

    Absolute bottom of the pay-scale, both as managers and for the line-level employees. As a manager it makes your job excruciating. Even though the economy has come back the company holds to the philosophy of paying nothing and spending nothing while asking the managers to take on far more tasks than other companies.
    Micro-managed to the nth degree.
    Miniscule budgets even amongst the most profitable hotels in the portfolio.
    There never is any money to spend...until it's time for inspections.
    Promotions and raises are exceedingly hard to come by even for very good managers.

    The bottom line to working for Remington is that if you're just entering the industry they are a good place to start, as they typically hire newbies due to their very low wage scales. From there use the company as a way to advance in the industry. There is a saying amongst the managers: Nobody ever retires from Remington. That means working for them isn't a career, it's just a job.

    The company knows how far they've fallen in terms of taking care of their associates. They used to have annual, private, anonymous polls handed out to the hourly associates asking how they are treated by their managers and the company. Our bonuses were tied to these polls. They did away with the polls several years ago. It's obvious why.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're not going to spend money on the departments to make their lives easier, at least spend money on things which build comraderie and create a fun environment. Doing the bare-minimum of having by-the-book employee parties/lunches don't fool anyone. The associates know it's a sham. We know you have to answer to Wall-street but there are ways to make things better on your employees.

    I have been working at Remington Hotels full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Competitive salary, great bonus plan, smart and forward looking leadership, excellent training and technology. Great people to network with throughout the company. Opportunities to get all hotel leaders together for training or meetings. Remington, unlike other hotel management companies owns their portfolio of hotels.

    Cons

    80 hotels, limited locations available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks for all the new programs, initiatives, employee feedback prompted changes, and support. Key West will be harder to win now, but I understand it makes it that much more of a reward!

    I worked at Remington Hotels full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nothing that I can think of. Met some quality people there non management that deserve much better. Remington should invest in them and do a better job of building a team of quality managers that respect and help their employees

    Cons

    Lack of training/Poor management/Employees treated as a commodity/Sub standard benefits and wages/Constant change of employees as they are either fired or get, so frustrated with management they leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire quality management. Look at Reuters Insider trading and you'll see who matters most to them.

    Pros

    Advancement opportunities, not much else good

    Cons

    Money-minded, unappreciative of their employees, they put a band-aid over problems, over-worked and underpaid

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and commend them, work on solving problems long-term rather than just immediate

    Pros

    Remington has growth opportunity and an expansion plan that is well grounded. There is a big market for the services they offer, and they're going after it.

    Cons

    There is so much self-interest and gnashing of teeth between departments that it's almost impossible to get things done without an act of congress. Upper management is hierarchical and unapproachable to anyone that is not a peer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a hard look at the long-term staff who are presenting roadblocks to your future operation goals, and stop rewarding crass behavior.
