Pros

great movement in company
luxury aspect
corporation experience
unions for hourly
beautiful building

Cons

They dont take well to a social life outside the work hours. Many times the company expects you not to have other friends or very many leisure commitments or enjoyable lifestyle outiside your vacation time.

Very serious about there "image" as a company. Being luxury, they want your to look and act as if your a guest paying that much money. Very easy to create a tone or judgments from staff that can harm your growth.

Advice to Management

Understand your staffs goals, what to do to move forward and retention of employees. Allow them to enjoy life as well, proceed with growth however, acknowledge there is other business outside of a hotel.
