    "Good training experience, but very long hours, low compensation, and very conservative, hierarchical environment."

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

    Pros

    Many good people working here, and the work is meaningful.

    Cons

    Work/life balance issues are almost unheard of in this company. Long nights and weekends are normal, while pay is not commensurate. A very political environment as mentioned by others. Relationship-based promotions win out over quality of work and analytic insights and contributions.

    Advice to Management

    Top management should value "face time" less, or work to better compensate employees for excessive overtime efforts. Management should work to better calibrate work projects undertaken to reasonable assessment of employee resources. Managers should not be valued according to how hard they work their employees. Offer more professional development opportunities.

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

    Pros

    You get paid $15 a hour which is okay if you don't have a lot of responsibilities.

    Cons

    Your job is as needed so if guest stay over and don't want your work in their rooms you have less work for the day and remember you get paid hourly, less work, less pay.
    Not a very diverse environment mainly Brazilians.
    Workers don't use gloves to clean bathrooms which I found to be very risky and nasty.
    During the slow period from winter to spring you get only a few hours so even though you are registered for full time, you get part time hours.

    Advice to Management

    Be more respectful to employees when they have issues, complaints or inquiries.

    I have been working at Clarion full-time

    Pros

    Very busy in the summer.

    Cons

    Management is confusing, when it comes housekeeping, to many chiefs, not enough indians. 19 rooms a day is a lot of rooms to have clean by 3pm.

    Advice to Management

    Have respect towards the housekeepers. Make sure you have enough linen and towels for your rooms

    I worked at Clarion (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    OT and allowance is given. No sacking policy and job security is protected. A best place to work if you are studying on part time basis and having own business.

    Cons

    Poor management and no salary scheme. Lots of old and transitional methodology is still being used today. High turn over rate and it is quite common to management.

    Advice to Management

    Take care the welfare as well as improving the benefits of employees.

    I worked at Clarion full-time

    Pros

    A good place to learn but at own initiative.

    The work environment is comfortable which could be both good and bad in the sense that there is not much pressure from superiors to perform more than you have to.
    Recommended for someone who needs more time with family (Work/Life Balance).

    Plenty of opportunities for career advancement as turnover rate is quite high.

    Cons

    It is definitely not for someone who has a lot of drive and motivation for implementing improvements as the company culture is to follow the old ways.

    Company has a no sacking policy which actually encourages many of the employees to underperform. (Example, I have a colleague who earns slightly lower than me but all he/she does everyday are surfing the net and some product testing).

    Management did not seem to reward or show appreciation to good employees, hence the high turnover rate. Also, expect a lower pay as compared to other companies in the same market unless you have connections with the MD.

    Advice to Management

    Management should treat employees not just equally but fairly as well.
