    I have been working at COMO Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A place where you can grow. They always give opportunities to those who show talent.

    Cons

    Still some issues with management. It's a new place in Miami.

    I worked at COMO Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at the Metropolitan by COMO, London, for over two years during 2014 and 2015. Having also worked in many UK hotel chains, I can appreciate the levels of organisation and structure that this business has.

    The Met is definitely what you would expect from a 5* environment on Park Lane - laundered uniforms, 3 course staff meals, regular communication meetings, yearly pay reviews, appraisals etc. These perks certainly made COMO a great company to work for.

    COMO has properties in some of the most beautiful parts of the world, and occasionally staff were asked to travel abroad to support these hotels (however, this was often reserved for long standing, senior employees).

    I would definitely recommend working for this company in any capacity. It looks great on your CV, and with hard work and dedication there are opportiunities to progress.

    Cons

    From my personal experience, I would say that the hotels rigid structure, can be a negative as well as a positive. Staff were told how to act, what to wear, what to say, which took some of the character and personality away from the individuals. This sometimes created a rigid environment with robotic staff. Having said that, this is often the case in 5* hotels, and is required to maintain the high levels of service.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for a great experience. I learnt a lot from my time there. My only advice would be to loosen up a little and try and have some fun at work.

    Pros

    Great Vision, Mission, and Values with a strong community and sustainability focus.

    Cons

    At times fails to stay true to the sustainability mission of the group

    Advice to Management

    When working on an initative, new process or project the first order of business is to be guided by Vision, Mission, Values as well as the community and sustainability bedrock of the group.

    I worked at COMO Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    May have a good spa concept potential at some of the resort's in specific locations.

    Cons

    HR and senior management seemed to adopt fashionable (external) dedication to wellness and CSR only.

    Advice to Management

    Please avoid managers with temper tantrum problems. Stress management shouldn't be ignored.
