I worked at New York Convention & Visitors Bureau full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

It did provide exposure to a large group of people and it provided a good job for my resume.

Cons

No work life balance, if you want to work at this place, it has to be the center of your life. Management treats employees like dirt, with little care for there needs or aspirations. All the department heads are equally self centered and uncaring.

Advice to Management

Stop treating your employees like they are slaves. Start treating them with respect and dignity and then maybe you will stop losing great talent.

    Pros

    For some reason this organization has managed to build a name witin the tourism industry which can have an impact on future job searches; I think that has more to do with the stated mission than the reality of the day to day output.

    Cons

    The "leadership" is non-existant in many departments which results in groups of incompetent senior managers looking out for one another &, in the process, promoting each other to unearned titles & pay scales. It's so unchecked that managers who are extremely talented at what they do have no chance of promotions at all if they aren't a part of the incompetent back scratchers group. There's also the reality that the organization doesn't affect any change but twists statstics so that it appears that they do which makes it that much easier for incompetent employees to remain undetected.

    Advice to Management

    The sad part about it is that the higher ups are aware of what's going on and won't do anything unless someone from the outside (a member or a news publication) made an issue.

    "The last reviewer had it exactly right. What was written in 2008 is still the unfortunate case here."

    I have been working at New York Convention & Visitors Bureau full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good industry status means people take your phone calls and you get invites to great parties and meet a lot of great people - in the company and outside of the company.

    Cons

    Success is based solely on who you know, not what you know. It is truly unbelievable how some highly, highly incompetent people are skyrocketing to the top! Some members in senior management seemingly sit around all day feeding the egos of those above them and conspiring how to self-promote themselves into higher titles and salaries, while sabotaging any competition they perceive they have.

    Advice to Management

    You should value employees based on knowledge, abilities, and hard work. Some of these people show loyalty to the company by having integrity in their work and actions.
