    Pros

    Hospitality is a nice industry to be in. People are nice and friendly.

    Cons

    You will not be able to grow in this company without knowing the right people, at the right time. I have seen so many talented and dedicated people stuck at some level, making their 3rd-4th lateral move in their 7-8th year (eventually, they give up and move on), while some others can climb the career ladder in 3 years. More often than not, positions get filled without being announced. While I understand that... the company has no obligation to announce a position, I can't see how a remote employee who doesn't have the opportunity to build a network will be considered for those roles.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent. Give the same opportunity to everyone in your organization, not only the people you know and favor.

    Pros

    Evolving company with countless opportunities to innovate, with an IT leader preaching for innovative changes. I really enjoy my days working with lots of different personalities. Keep it up!!

    Cons

    IT leadership has been getting bad press for wanting to innovate and evolve the company. There are pockets of individuals resisting, instead of embracing change or offering better alternatives.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting from within and hiring bright talented individuals.
