I worked at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The company is a great place to work if you are social, lively, and enjoy a fast paced work environment. Most offices let you bring your dog to work and they focus on team building and having fun on the job.

Cons

Extremely gay friendly company, so if your values do not match up, you will not fit in. The Directors have also been on the lazy side and give their sales team unrealistic goals.

    I worked at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants full-time

    Pros

    Creative, mostly great and well informed clients

    Cons

    Random, disorganized, inconsistent, employee experience too much dependent on GM's values, likes and dislikes

    Advice to Management

    Have company-wide documented policies and procedures, documented company-wide standards for both hourly employees and managers, reflected and followed through via employee evaluations. Roll out promotions with details and logistics communicated to properties prior to selling, establish and indicate communication and resources channels for those promotions. Have an email address / text message number / web page feature for employee anonymous feedback/reporting with an appropriate follow up.

    Pros

    Young, Great Mission, Customer and Employee focused.

    Cons

    It is a west coast run property with over 50 hotels in their portfolio, not all of them are held to the same standards.

    Advice to Management

    Help the good employees get better. There are qualified people underneath you who are getting lost and let go.
