    Pros

    The people are fantastic, really caring people that are great at what they do. They care about employees and guests and provide exceptional service to guests.

    Cons

    During my time with Fitzpatrick, I cannot think of any downsides to working with them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    Good benefits, hands on Human Resources department.

    Cons

    Excessive emphasis in providing better service to internal management and hotel owner, rather than concentrating in the customers.

    Advice to Management

    Do not expect more attention than the customers. The service cannot be stopped because the owner is stopping by for lunch.

    Pros

    It was a good place to learn from. All the obstacles you go through working for that company help you grow and become a better person and a stronger leader.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't value its employees as much as they should.Employees are overworked for horrible pay. Especially when comparing it to NYC average hourly/salary wages.

    Advice to Management

    Be appreciative of what you have, your employees are the reason guests keep coming back. If you show some kind of recognition, employee turnover would probably decrease.

    Pros

    With a great General Manager and CEO these are the two men that keep the company going.

    Cons

    Too much politics from other managers and too much leeway given to too many employees. Salary is way too low.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more and stop the work politics!

    I worked at Fitzpatrick Hotel Group full-time

    Pros

    There aren't any pros, seriously.

    Cons

    Lowest paying hotel in the city. Half union/half non unioned. Expect people to slave for no pay.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better, by paying at industrial/locational standard. You simply can not expect low paid people to not only do their job, but also several others jobs. Switch management in all departments. Dir. Of Housekeeping needs to lower her volume/tone- it isn't every nice to have her screaming at all your "lower" employees. Dir. Of F&B is a joke, no further explanation is even needed. Dir of Front Desk is a clerk at best. Most supervisors in the departments seem to have little or no experience in management and pass blame upon their employees that "they are supervising". The General Manager isn't much help either, does not acknowledge employee concerns, especially with treatment, pay and unfairness.
    They are all write up happy.

    Pay is terrible (unless your unioned) can not stress this further:

    Kitchen staff (line cooks, receiver, dishwasher) receive $16-18 at best.
    Front Desk receive $15
