I worked at Hyatt full-time for more than 10 years
Great employee culture and engagement programs. Ability to network nationwide and gather much knowledge and guidance. Travel possibilities for work efforts as well as benefits for personal travel.... Fully an "all hands on deck" environment when any one department needs support.
Hotel operations as well as security operations are 24x7. Its a delicate balance to accommodate hotel and client needs and still respect personal/family time for staff and self.
Advice to Management
Listen. Learn. Always be ready to be "a helper" at new properties. Networking is important, but the knowledge gained from working in different cities, different properties, and different labor... conditions is invaluable.
