    I have been working at Hospitality Ventures Management Group full-time (More than a year)


    HVMG has a very strong senior leadership team. They are innovative, growth oriented and focus on our core value of excellence. They care about their employees well-being, both professionally and personally. Benefits are good, and pay is decent.


    Communication could be improved. The HV team is lean, and fast paced. Sometimes communication is late reaching everyone. No real cons. Like any job, there are parts that are better than others.

    Advice to Management

    Work on communication between all departments. Benefit cost is high, but quality benefits, perhaps work on the cost to employees. Other than that, continue to seek opportunities to grow and develop talent.

    The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Hospitality Ventures Management Group.


    Please, four months?! You will be integrated by every breathing soul in the corporate office.. It makes you wonder, how much of hospitality business experience these people represents. Did they ever worked on the property level? Did they ever rolled up their sleeves?
