Pros

There is great opportunity for change & learning. The pace is very hectic; no time to be bored. They pay well. They have at their disposal great technology; incredible programs and resources. They own/manage great hotel brands.

Cons

This company treats people badly and always has. They continue to get their priorities wrong every day. Any day when the almighty dollar wins over what's best for your people or worse, your clients, its a bad business decision. There has to be a middle ground. The levels of communication are ridiculously bad at the property level as well as with the corporate office. Unless you are a big-wig, be prepared for lots of politics and to be misrepresented every day unless you are a "yes-man" .

Advice to Management

Get your priorities straight. Learn to communicate clearly, often and effectively. LISTEN to your people - at all levels; not just top managers! Learn from the past, change your behavior. The definition of insanity is repeating the same actions, yet expecting a different result. Even if the characters change, if the behaviors do not, you're repeating the same mistakes. Stop treatign your employees as if you own them. Provide better benefits in terms of vacation & leave. To make a person wait a year for any of those benefits shows how little you value your employees and how little faith you have that anyone will be retained for that long.

    Pros

    If you are an opportunist there is many ways you can learn about the inner workings of other departments and the hospitality industry as a whole.

    Cons

    Hotels never close. Never. State of emergency: you work. Holiday: you will definitely work some holidays(particularly if you are new). You will also be working weekends. That being said, you get used to it and it's not as bad as it initially sounds


  2. "The Bottom Line"

    I worked at PM Hospitality Strategies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There's potential to move around. Unfortunately, that movement is lateral instead of up.

    Cons

    Lateral Movement, with not much of a boost in pay. It's all about the "bottom line." Albeit true for all companies, at what expense (no pun intended) do you get that done? Value your internal guests, and in turn they will value the guests that keep the doors revolving. At some point, PMHS lost site of that. And in turn, lost some very valuable employees that actually made a difference. Made the job fun. Bottom line, value your internal guests, and you will see that bottom line increase.

    Advice to Management

    Value your internal guests.
