    I worked at Fairmont Hotels & Resorts full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They really put the colleagues first, it is not just talk their philosphy is that if they take care of their employees the employees will look after their customers and return which will deliver returns for ownership

    Cons

    Politics at hotel level Executive Committee can be tiresome this is evident at nearly all properties, more mature leadership is required

    Advice to Management

    Need a better sucession planning system for managers and share it with them, especially the Non Reccomends on the FSI. Many senior managers do not get promotions or transfers because of their results on Gallup FSI or the cost of relocating them, however this is never shared with them. This flies in the face of how managers are expected to manage and develop the colleagues.

    Pros

    Fairmont is a company that is strives of making "Moments into Memories" for all guests and colleagues. It's a place where one's talent is maximized and enhanced throughout their career and the evidence is that there are quite a few people that have made Fairmont their one and only career choice.

    Cons

    May sometimes be too Canadian but that is changing with the new leadership.
