Pros

Great coworkers, they really feel like a family. They pay great, above normal and you'll love your job. Managers are good but not great but not bad

Cons

They ask for a lot of hours to put in. They mess up at times with your checks, payroll is a pain in the butt. And you feel intimidated by the higher management there, the director positions, hardest dapartment to work for is food and beverage. It's the funniest but most strict

    Pros

    Because Mandarin Oriental is a niche luxury service that caters to the high end client, the pay is good (slightly above average for the Industry) and so are the health benefits. The organization also offers comprehensive, ongoing training to further develop the talent of its employees.

    Cons

    Because one of the core values of the company is returning value to shareholders, the bottom line on its balance sheet is the Company's most prized asset. So job security is not something that can be assured, regardless of individual performance, as cost cutting is a priority for Executive Management.

    Advice to Management

    While cost controls are a legitimate area of focus for any enterprise in order for it to be successful far too much emphasis is placed on cost cutting for the near term which, in turn, diminishes the value of the ongoing, in house training that is provided to the employees. More emphasis should be placed on investment through human capital and less on the fiscal projections for the upcoming quarter.

    Pros

    A fancy hotel name to add to your resume

    Cons

    The only positive thing about working for the Mandarin is the fact that you get to add it to your resume. Absolutely will NOT recommend this hotel to anyone to work for!! HR is useless, managers don know what they're doing,very high expectations for a measly pay,the only ones who enjoy the hotel are the guests.

    Advice to Management

    You need to actually pay managers a little better and hire managers with KNOWLEDGE. The hotel is in serious need of new managers who could turn the tables around for the best!
