Current Employee - Manager in White Plains, NY
Current Employee - Manager in White Plains, NY
Recommends
Approves of CEO

Pros

- Discounted hotel room stays
- Discounted hotel meals
- Tuition reimbursement
- Free online training and education
- Multiple opportunities for reviews, feedback
- Social & philanthropic events

Cons

There aren't too many downsides of working here, but I will name a few that stand out:

- Healthcare options are horrible. They recently switched to a Health Savings Account (HSA) type of coverage but isn't going over well with many associates.
- When the economy is bad, we take a hit as well. Haven't had a company picnic or holiday party in years. The hope is it will return in 2011.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work. You made some tough decisions letting go a large percentage of the corporate staff but your long-term vision is good.

    Pros

    Normall get a really good deal on hotel rooms within the Starwood Hotel group. Expect 70% off. Expect tips as well.

    Cons

    Dont pay great small benefits. Poor hours and often times work on holidays to assist in helping with vacation travelers

    Advice to Management

    I would give no advice to managers, I wasnt involved long enough to experience advice. Hotel business is hard becuase of the flip time and scheduled hours
