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

    Pros

    Incredible resort with a dedicated team of individuals. All the employees take great pride in the resort and go out of their way to make the guest's experience incredible. Everyone is very friendly and helps each other out as much as possible. The resort is beautiful and you cannot beat working in such an incredible environment. In general the leadership team does is very good, cares about the staff and provides a positive working environment.

    Cons

    The resort has become very popular and extremely busy year round. With occupancy levels running so high, there isn't much down time for the staff to recharge. You can see how tired many of the staff members are and my fear is it will lead to burnout and turnover.


  7. One year, and that should be enough.

    Not a typical work place. They give you a lot of empowerment.

    Give opportunities to employees that actually deserve the promotion(s) and work hard. ACKNOWLEDGEMENT. APPRECIATION!! Focus on the bigger picture.

    I have been working at Terranea full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A very busy place with polite and achieved clientele. I would recommend friends and family to stay here because from the inside-out, I know that the service is genuine and the staff are positively passionate about this spectacular resort.

    Cons

    Parking can sometimes be difficult but we accept that this is the nature of the beast. When we know it's busy the staff are patient in waiting and finding a solution to the parking problem. The corporate team is looking into the parking structure and we are very excited to see it come to fruition.

    Advice to Management

    I think the company does a great job of creating a sense of equality. Compensation is either fair or above average. For a hotel that is nestled away in one of the most beautiful and serene locals of Los Angeles, the best advise I would give is keep on doing what they are doing. Otherwise, foster the new leaders with energy that exceeds the expectations of the staff to keep the positive momentum going.

    Management has always listened to suggestions and asked for opinions, which makes everyone feel involved in the success of the company.
