    I have been working at Ritz-Carlton full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Made it through the recession because of wealthy people. Business groups fell off but are now coming back. Good environment esthetically to work in. Hours are very good, can practically choose which days and times to work.

    Cons

    Management, Management, MANAGEMENT!!! Need I say more. They need training on how NOT to treat people badly, how not to PLAY favorites, how to COMMUNICATE CLEARLY AND PRECISELY. Communication is horrible between team members and other departments. Lots of secrets and withholding of information. LOts of gossip. The worst personality always get promoted based on the persons ability to LIE, CHEAT, AND SLEEP HIS/HER way to the top. Pay could be a lot better.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up to the fact that most of your subordinates know as much if not more than you do. Corporate needs to come off the hill and put in some REAL management training classes. Communicate with us about everything instead of what you think should be told to us, and do it by having real monthly meetings instead of the ones where you do all the talking!


  2. "Great Company, values, and mission...just pay us a little more!"
