    I have been working at Four Seasons full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    80% of other employees are in your shoes and are cool. You'll make friends. Unfortunately pay is good but iv learned from this job thAt money instead of happiness is not worth it.

    Cons

    Everything. Mgmt sucks, HR misleads you when it comes to everything hr aka time off, sick time, benefits. Nothing is what it seems. Oh and if you're a line employee like me, you'll never get the respect you deserve, you're a grunt and will be treated as such. Iv been here 7 months and I have hated every day iv gone in, the only good thing is I made some good friends (that feel the exact same). Last but not least you will also get over looked for every promotion despite qualifications and experiences.

    Advice to Management

    Stop everything you do, and do the opposite. You're literally the worst.

    Get seasoned before giving advice to employees, just cause you graduated college doesn't mean you understand everything

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

    Pros

    Looks really great on the resume! The people (overall) are really great and they really push that team environment and encourage you to socialize outside of work with all levels of management and hourly staff. This helps create a more family environment and you really do want to help your team as much as you can!

    Cons

    Moving up is really hard and you have to constantly push for what direction you want, otherwise they will take you were they want and it may not always be the best for you. You're only as good as you make you manager look.
    Also the hours can be really killer. But they do compensate for that.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to young management, especially if they are qualified. Seems to be stuck on this idea of being a certain age to be good at a job
