    I worked at Hilton full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Enjoyed fantastic travel benefits, health benefits, and after one year of continuous employment had the option to take 12 paid weeks of maternity leave. Great management structure and communication from corporate. Felt valued and respected.

    Cons

    Individual managers spoke down to people, top executives wanted things done with very little notice/ made last-minute changes that caused stress. Poor work/life balance working in HR.

    Advice to Management

    Running a lean office means increased stress for everyone. Consider hiring another person when certain people are being required to work overtime every single week.

    I worked at Hilton full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The work environment and opportunities. 2 days work from home after 6 months in role (~9 months from start). decent health care coverage options. The Colonnade is a great office space.

    Cons

    Inconsistencies between Hilton Corporate and RMCC cultures and values. The biggest frustration was the consistent praise about the work life balance, but in reality most people work over 45 hours a week and working overtime is encouraged by management and clients.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck.

    I worked at Hilton full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Amazing culture - High expectation - always the best and brightest - Executive leadership involved and visible - Great benefits - Collaborative - Clearly has multiple top awards for employment in many categories for a reason - Travel! - willing to invest time and training in you

    Cons

    - The top awards don’t account for some people managers sadly, not all experience a great place to work - Work life balance is hard to maintain -No one wants to rock the boat - The devil is in the details - Negotiate salary hard up front - 401k is just ok - Team Member rate is hard to come by during the time families can take vacation - Travel, not everyone gets to travel or only gets the places their boss... doesn’t want to go - clear promotion criteria for everyone - depends on the team your on. If you are on a great team - you will love your role. It’s all about the managers.

    Advice to Management

    Please - weed out your Directors and Senior Directors that have high staff turn over. And conduct exit interviews which currently are not done. Advancement was great...on other teams, not mine.

    401K is up to a 5% match Depending on your union the pay can be decent The code of conduct creates a drama free atmosphere adding to their beneficial work/life balance business model. Forbes magazine added it to their top 100 best places to work

    Cons

    Sometimes I feel that not all dedicated to the company's waste managment goal of cutting our company wide food waste down 50% by 2030. I also feel that 2030 is too long.

    Advice to Management

    it be nice if they did some research into african american hair care industry and adjusted what appropriate head covering they purchase, and modify their already strict uniform policy.
