I have been working at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants full-time (More than a year)

Pros

I loved working for Kimpton Hotels. As a front desk agent and a private dining server for over 1 year, I felt it was a company where I could really be myself. Their core values matched up with mine perfectly - they care about the environment, LGBT rights, and standing out from other brands. I left to make better money elsewhere but will likely return one day.

Cons

There aren't many cons. I did feel very underpaid, but my pay was on-par with other hotels in the area as a front desk agent, so this isn't much to the fault of Kimpton.

Advice to Management

Perhaps better benefits would be great. Having lived in Europe, I'm always in awe that a hospitality company offers only one week of paid vacation. This really affects work/life balance and directly reflects on job performance.

    Pros

    Some benefits
    Decent Pay
    Good co-workers
    Vacation paid

    Cons

    This company does not support the employee in the career path.
    They are supposed to assist the employee in transfers after six months, but this is false, hiring managers use any reason to not provide the transfer.
    Too much favoritism to promote employees instead of analyze the background and qualifications.
    HR department is very uncooperative and leave intern clients adrift, specially at requesting transfer or applying for another vacancy.
    Since Nikki Leondakis left is not the same.
    Some restaurant managers are not approachable
    GM Meetings discuss only about the good things they want to hear but never ask if there is a negative aspect that affects the employee's welfare.

    Advice to Management

    Support the employee following parameters in the Employee handbook.
