    I have been working at Hersha Hospitality Trust as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The leaders are excellent at "talking the talk." They know how to excite a room and convince an audience of their promises. They can generate excitement.

    Cons

    They have a hard time delivering on their promises. They fail to back up their pitches with action. They manage their hotels from a place of fear. The proper supports do not exist, as the support team is young and inexperienced. The leader are all men (or close to men) and the support seem to be pretty young things; more of a dating pool. A "boys club" that bows down to the owners.

    There is a lot of talk about work life balance, but they work employees to death and then push them out.

    Advice to Management

    Look closely at your regional and vp team. They are all covering each others' messes up. The revenue management and sales teams are not generating the revenue they could. And your operations teams are kept preoccupied acting as secretaries for the vps. Everyone is more concerned with giving the right answers. The love of hospitality is lost.

    Listen to your own speeches.

    I have been working at Hersha Hospitality Trust full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I cant think of anything nice to put here.

    Cons

    I work at a hotel manage by Hersha. All i can say is Hersha is cheap. Its all business. There is no incentive for the employees here. I use to love my job until i came to this company. Its very sad to say that. Some of the workers here work over 8 hours and no break, this isnt a sweatshop but they treated us as such.

    Advice to Management

    They way the property managers are treating your hotel is showing everyone who work here that corporate doesnt really care about the employees. Maybe instead of looking at the numbers ( which you probably well never do) Look at the qualities of your employees, anyways because of them is that you make any money at all.
