    I worked at Amanresorts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Incredible hotels, incredible but remote locations by design, design element world class, fabulous CEO & certain corporate execs. New owner (Vladislav Doronin) will be very good for the brand.

    Cons

    Losing some of the Adrian Zecha "magic", very unorganized and tumultuous corporate office (revolving door), certain unskilled senior leaders that should not be in positions held due to lack of experience, Be ready to 'sink or swim" If you are very good, life expectancy is fair. Remuneration in comparison to other luxury brands low. Thought process is the privilege to work for is enough (will not pay your expenses regardless of great brand).

    Advice to Management

    Hire top of the line leadership, pay them as top of the line leadership and support them to succeed. Simple formula.

    I worked at Amanresorts full-time

    Pros

    Good environment to work in. Colleagues are willing to share knowledge and opinions.

    Cons

    Having a part time human resource manager who has more say in employee's remuneration than the financial controller

    Advice to Management

    Hire a better and experienced human resource personnel might help to mitigate the cons

    Pros

    Enjoy a easy and slow pace, work/life balance, colleagues mind their own business, boss doesn't micromanage you, entitled free stay at any of the resorts of your preference.

    Cons

    No bonuses that I know of, the management level can be a little distant, they retains a command and control approach which stifles innovation approach. Lots of territorial behavior at upper management levels. Little room for advancement in a company, feels like working under-recognized workforce. The medical benefits for the the staff is horrible. All the benefits goes to who you know, the higher management.

    Advice to Management

    It would be a great place to work for if there is room for growth with job security, the management invested in developing talented employees.

  8. "Good boost to include in resume"

    Pros

    Flat structure, which is also its cons, depends on how you see it. Lack of proper SOP, no standards, laid back culture, unagressive, simple peaceful place to work in just like the culture in resorts (again these are pros to some and cons to others depending on what you want to achieve out from a job). premier branding (definitely a pro esp. for starters who need a big name to boost resume), opens exposure to those who are interested to see big earners, excellent product. Quiet colleagues who mind their own businesses minus all the red tapes, back stabbers, hypocrisy...

    Cons

    Big draw back is the lack of welfare. decent basic pay though. Little or no career advancement within the company itself due to the flat structure. People who stay long here are people who are contended with a stable monthly pay cheque.

    Advice to Management

    Relook into the distribution channels for profitability The company has really a superior product that sets itself a tier of its own with no 'real' competitors afterall. Still, alot more could be done to reach untapped revenue stream: Hire the right management team - with more experiences and passion/ aggressive to make the change.

    Pros

    Time Off, Flexibility, Decent Tips were the main pros of this job. You get to meet a lot of people and spend most of the day outside and driving guests to/from the hotel. Pretty sweet gig as long as you have a good group of co-workers to spend you day with.

    Cons

    Little to no opportunity for advancement, low wages/hours were the two main complaints of most staff at the hotel. You would not be able to survive on the wages offered by the hotel in the absence of tips which came during the high tourist seasons of summer and winter.

    Advice to Management

    Raise wages to a living wage appropriate for the resort town of Jackson Hole. Otherwise management does a pretty good job keeping the transient employees happy at this hotel.
