    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Hotels Ab part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great perks for the staff. Weekly raffles, employee and manager of the month and the quarter rewards, discounts to many large companies that have contracts with AB hotels. Smart management teams. Healthcare and vacation, which can be rare in the hospitality industry. They encourage upwards mobility and moving up in the company, while also encouraging movement between the various properties, NY/LA/Miami.

    Cons

    Sometimes the company can be a bit superficial and a little too focused on looks.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Hotels Ab full-time

    Pros

    not many good things to say

    Cons

    clicky, back-stabbing culture is pervasive. everyone is afraid of professional assassination as a result of everyone scrambling to try to please "Andre". if you are on ownership's radar in a good way, you can feel like a target from everyone else unless you serve the inner circle who protects you as you are expected to protect them. it's pretty insane all around.

    Advice to Management

    run - unless you like a soulless identity and existence

  3. "Amazing concepts but challenging politics & communication"

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Hotels Ab full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Dynamic ideas and properties with a really solid COO (David Bowd -- fair, sharp and the star behind the scenes).

    Cons

    Tough political climate. Different departments can be very territorial / threatened by changes or suggestions that don't benefit them directly. Can feel like 'black-listing' when one speaks to the greater good of ideas or out of turn to anyone but their direct superior.

    Advice to Management

    Those new to directorships, but who know less than their management teams, may eventually drive away or dismiss ideas & talent that have made the company great.
