    Pros

    I think Kimpton is a great place to work for several reasons. First, the culture is amazing. People are happy to be at work, and they strive to have the best guest experiences. Second, because the company is small, you have opportunities to work in many departments for cross-training. Furthermore, it is common to meet the CEO or COO during their visits, because they enjoy seeing friendly faces. Finally, their hotels care for the environment and embrace green practices.

    Cons

    One of the biggest cons about Kimpton is that they really like people willing to move up the ranks by relocating to many cities around the US. If this environment is not for you, you may want to pass on Kimpton. Also, their pay scale for management is slightly lower than the counterparts I've known at other 4-5 star corporate brands.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership at Kimpton is outstanding. All the Directors, VP's, and C-suite members add value to Kimpton. They keep the vision alive, and it is well evident.

    Pros

    It costs only $50 to stay at a 5-star hotel that would have cost you well over $300 a night at a normal rate. People at work is generally friendly and courteous.

    Cons

    Promotion path is vague at best. There is no guideline or communication on how to get promoted. If you look at the organization structure, you will see there are managers and directors with no direct reports or a manager could be reporting to a VP. So, you can't get a sense of how someone get promoted or how a position is filled. Benefits are not great but sufficient.

    Advice to Management

    Open and frequent communication to your subordinate about the company vision and direction will help with the morality among the average employees in the company. It will also give the employees a sense of direction to know what to do to help contribute to the bottom line.
