    The most challenging things about rotana hotel is that it's all about the hotel reputation and fame which is a part different from all other hotel in maskat, omen so I can improve my skills and as well I can work much harder in which would be mote challenging for me...

    I have been working at Rotana Hotel Management full-time

    Pros

    For managerial positions, Rotana offers comprehensive packages and looks after all needs including full housing, utilities and transport instead of just an allowance. You're therefore, not subject to unpredictable changes in the property market.

    Cons

    There is a lack of succession planning for certain positions and you're therefore, stuck from moving up the ladder.

    Advice to Management

    Could be time to review certain positions and structures in order to retain people within the company.

    Pros

    Fastest growing regional brand.Inspirational CEO and COO.AVPs provide great mentorship.

    Cons

    Professional having worked in International chains will not adapt to the unprofessionalism here.Directors are hired then treated as ordertakers and illtreated.Due to fast expansion top positiosn are awarded to unqualified candidates who make life living hell for professionals..Avoid their Bahrain properties, top management is worst ever.UAE properties are better.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the feedback from Management who leave.Consider why you have such a high turnover of management.do not give inexperienced candidates positions of power.do not have blind faith in ICT's and listen to both sides ,,,there is a lot of irregularities in ternally.Look deeper!

    Pros

    Human resources team are doing a great job, been able to provide departmental growth, through constantly training and keeping them updated with what's happening around the company and their office is always open to hear ur opinion or make suggestions.2. The working environment is very conducive for staff and guest. 3. More especially the staff welfare and housing provided meets standard, I can gladly say.

    Cons

    The bilingual differences, most times u find it difficult to understand a colleague due their inability to speak proper English or understand it, cos most of the staff are from Asian part of the world,

    Advice to Management

    They should review salary rate as it's efficient compared to the service delivery. And make proper decision when employing staff,

    nothing special , except they have a lot of properties in UAE and region , so if you know someone in other property you have a chance to move

    Pros

    Lots of trainings that can truly helped you grow in your career. Career growth is also fast as it is a big chain of hotels and colleagues are able to transfer from one property to another.

    Cons

    Since the hotel is quite busy and full chances are employees had to extend hours. It is quite a challenge for the employees working in housekeeping, front office and food and beverage when the occupancy is busy.

    Advice to Management

    Go down to the rank and file, talk to them and get to know them not only once in a while but more often. If you can also dine with them in the colleague outlet would be much much more appreciated.
