    Pros

    Career opportunities, Four Seasons has many different styles of properties in many different countries. For those people who want to travel and grow their career there are many opportunties. Also you do not need to travel if your circumstances won't allow it.
    You would work with a wonderful, intelligent, like minded group of people who all understand the Company goals and work collaboratively together to achieve them.
    Benefits such as complimentary room nights at Four Seasons Hotels
    You would work in very pleasant conditions

    Cons

    No real downside, it's a pleasure to go to work. We work hard but are recognised and rewarded for it and we play hard as well.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture of our hotels as we grow larger, don't compromise

    I worked at Four Seasons full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Four Seasons really looks after their employees. Great pay, excellent benefits and a very comfortable and positive work environment. Potential to advance through the company with a career. Hire based on attitude, always great people to work with.

    Cons

    Potentially not much job freedom as your tasks/roles/duties may be VERY clearly defined.

    Advice to Management

    Keep lines of communication as open as possible with all staff members.

    I worked at Four Seasons full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    always supportive, competative salary, great HR department, medical and dental benefits are only average but the benefit of having free nights at any of the hotels is outstanding.

    Cons

    As work increased they did not increase budgets which results in downsizing of staff, leaving those still with a job with more work than before and no pay increase for additional responsibilities.

    I have been working at Four Seasons as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    All levels of management willing to help out at any time for any reason. Makes for a very open and enjoyable work environment.

    Cons

    The resort was in a transition period and as a result the internship started without much direction. But as the summer picked up, those problems were solved.

    I have been working at Four Seasons part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great employer, nice staff cafeteria, less work for a banquet server comparing to other banquet halls or hotels in Toronto

    Cons

    This job could require staff to finish late at night. Long term standing and walking is usually required.

    Advice to Management

    Input better training for all staff, and create better communication among all staff

    Pros

    Company that really cares about their employees, great benefits, rapidly expanding making way for lot of opportunity to move up, pays better then any other high end hotel company, a great work environment to learn and grow. Nice to work for a company who isn't focused on $ but focused on well being of employees and guest experience

    Cons

    Politics like many places. Sometimes you see people promoted who haven't necessarily earned it, but campaigned and for it instead.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within and promote those most deserving of it.

    Pros

    Great experience, really good health benefits, better salary standards than any other food and beverage jobs out there. A wonderful place for the beginners and for people who is looking for a stable job in this industry.

    Cons

    The hours are horrible, work day and night, holidays and weekends...Too much inside politics and hard to get promoted.

    Pros

    great learning opportunity as quality of food is always the focus. Life work balance is relatively better than the standard in this industry.

    Cons

    Instructions from senior cooks and management can be contradicting and confusing. New hires have to "tough it out" before being promoted to full-time or even part time.

    Pros

    The company has always taken care of it's employees and always strives to do the right thing. This company always lends an opportunity for development and very willing to let you try new things you'd never otherwise get to in other companies.

    Cons

    Small company, limited availability for senior roles in certain disciplines, although, that will change.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to keep the culture
