Pros

This company is made up of a lot of great people to work with. The company has had strong financial returns and pays pretty well.

Cons

They are going through some layoffs in some areas so ask in your interview about current track record. Also, while you get paid well, IHG demands crazy hours due to lack of focus. They are dropping in top employers in Atlanta rating which should tell you something. All in all, because of the people, still okay place.

Advice to Management

They've already heard it.

    I worked at InterContinental Hotels Group full-time

    Pros

    Great location in Downtown Austin and recent gorgeous renovations. Rank and file employees are dedicated and hard working. Excellent compensation.

    Cons

    In spite of the excellent location and recent renovations, the culture and style practiced by management are straight out of the 1980s.

    IHG touts itself is a place where you are free to be yourself. Nothing could be further from the truth. The atmosphere is oppressive. The offices are dank and filthy and the technology systems and hardware are archaic.

    Management views legitimate questions as challenges to authority and unworthy of answers.

    Advice to Management

    Please join us in Austin, Texas in the 21st century! Your employees are not failing you -- you are failing your employees by clinging to outdated notions about just about everything.

    Legitimate questions should be treated as such and not viewed as challenges to one's authority. If you're unable to answer the question, please offer to help find the answer.
