    Glad I don't work there anymore

    Food and Beverage (Former Employee) Santa Monica, CA

    ProsAbove Minimum Wage
    Health Benefits
    Santa Monica is a decent location

    ConsYou are a cog in a machine
    You have to commit your life to it in order to move up
    No control over schedule- Very inflexible = Difficult Work Life Balance, you are at their mercy
    Pay isn't high enough to warrant the ridiculously high standards management holds you to
    Items were constantly out of stock or misplaced
    Everyone there is miserable
    Often times there is no parking due to events at the hotel so you have to park offsite and wait to get reimbursed
    Food is overpriced and not very good, even with the 50% discount they give you
    Poor design of hotel means service can be inefficient. For example having the kitchen on a different floor from the main dining area.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow people more control over schedules
    Have everything stocked up
    Listen to employees and actually care what they have to say

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    My experience was absolutely phenomenal.

    It was a great company prior to 2007

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsThe company culture and people were great.

    ConsA lot of layoffs at the corporate office starting around 2008, company was trimmed down to an skeleton crew that had to work lots of hours to make up for the laid off employees. If you are considering a job at their Corporate office in Los Angeles, beware since the company hasn't grown much in the past 5-6 years. They tend to lose hotel management deals when hotels in their portfolio get sold to other investors.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest to your employees

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    ProsInternational working environment, lots of responsibilities and challenging! The hotels are all very luxurious and they put a lot of emphasis on employee benefits.
