Great company, management not so good

Whatever/Whenever Agent (Former Employee)
New York, NY

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

ProsTraining was superior and held often. Really made you have pride in working for the company. Salary was great, plenty of overtime.

ConsManagers played favorites, although they train you that the guest is the number one priority, the same complaints from guest were never fully addressed so guest were irate at employees who couldn't really help them,

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to "low level" employees. Ask for feedback from employees about their managers. Don't allow managers to play favorites with employees. Often the hardest working don't necessarily get the well deserved promotions.

Initial awe of the scene draws you, but leaves you empty.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at W Hotels

ProsLots of celebs pass through, plenty of perks for the nightlife scene.

ConsUnderstaffed. Lack of growth opportunity. Very highschool type scene when it comes to getting away with things and the culture of the hotel in general. Cliques.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
