    Pros

    Continuous opportunity to advance within the company. Unmatched benefits.

    Cons

    Quality of life can suffer for those dedicated to moving up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We are the top 1%, meet the MRP, help provide coverage so we can use PTO and not lose it.

    Former Employee - Server in Denver, CO

    I worked at Ritz-Carlton part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked both part time and some full time as a server. Money had potential to be good. Ability to move up within department was there, however in order to move departments it was more challenging and you had to start out at the lower end-even if you had previous qualifications. Also they had full benefits if you worked full time which was wonderful.

    Cons

    Schedule was unpredictable, working holidays, very long nights some times, ugly uniforms

    I worked at Ritz-Carlton full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are strong and secure. Also, the hotel discounts are amazing.

    Cons

    It is a 24 hour operation and work life balance is not considered even though it is one of their core values.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers work as much or even more than employees. I would not recommend being a manager here.

    Pros

    Great money. Cool people. Lots of excercise. The parties we had were fantastic. Got to drive some amazing cars.

    Cons

    Training. Not flexible with my school schedule. I would tell them 3 months in advance that I needed a day off and it wouldn't be granted.

    The benefits are excellent. Heavily discounted hotel stays around the world. Good health insurance benefits too. An overall good work environment.

    The guests can have high expectations. Management also has high expectations. The pay is not great. The company does always promote from within.

    I worked at Ritz-Carlton full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits, work enviroment, great coworkers.

    Cons

    Unorganized, people always calling off, management would flat out lie to you and seemed unqualified in the Guest Services department. Almost daily someone would miss their shift. Always being asked to cover someones shift. It seemed management wouldn't do anything about the issue. Planning was at times last minute and managers would take their stress out on their team members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest and up front with your employees.
