Pros

The employee discount is a pretty awesome perk. You get to travel for very cheap and go to places all over for next to nothin.

Cons

The cons would definitely be the hours and that hotels are open 24/7 365. It can be difficult to work the hours if you have a family life.

Advice to Management

There is always room for advancement with hotels. Turnover is high and people can move up to management positions quickly but there's not a lot of room for advance besides assistant manager and general manager.

    Cons

    Hours available for front desk agents are minimal due to the economy management covers most front desk hours. (Management is hopeful this will change in 2012). This factor often requires agents to have additional employers due to the few hours available to them. Employee benefits are unable to be acheived due to employees unable to work fulltime weekly hours for terms required for these benefits.

    Advice to Management

    create more fultime positions available for employee benefits to be acheived

    Pros

    Fun is important. Even when the job sucks, you still feel like everybody's in it together. As a member of the global ecommerce team, you get to work with alot of intelligent people and get to be part of some very creative solutions. The diversity of the team is fantastic.

    Cons

    With any large technology organizations, you'll see some bad decisions being made and supported from the top down. The hours can be a little insane, seeing as it's a global company and you have to interact/support groups around the world.
