    Pros

    greta benefits, management team, work hours are good, because its a big corporation they take your "write off" away from your history of employment within a company - six months later

    Cons

    company is too large - takes to long to up a ladder, clientele contains mostly tourists, secret shopper that supposedly improves your service skills is not that efficient. Too many lazy employees - impossible to be noticed because company is too big

    Advice to Management

    do drug test every 3 months, sometimes team needs micromanagement to see who is actually working and who isnt

    I have been working at Hyatt full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company to work with in terms of family balance lifestyle. Remote working environment is well managed.

    Cons

    You are not communicated with on a regular basis. If I had not asked when my end date on an assignment was to complete, I would not have been told until the last minute.

    I worked at Hyatt as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They have an amazing culture that revolves around their values. You truly feel at home when working at Hyatt Hotels.

    Cons

    There were no cons that I could think of. This was by far the best intern position I have held so far.

    Advice to Management

    The hiring process took place late in the year. It would have been more convenient to start the process earlier for summer interns.

    I worked at Hyatt as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone was so welcoming and caring and you really become part of the Hyatt family!

    Cons

    Internship didn't have rotations around the hotel and I didn't gain as much managerial experience as I had hoped or expected

    Advice to Management

    Involve the interns as much as you possibly can! We really want to learn as much as we can and I did not gain that much experience to prepare me for a managerial role

    Pros

    Good company culture, work / life balance, pride in brands and quality of hotels, travel perks, ability to grow and develop career within company

    Cons

    Poor compensation and benefits, lack of diversity in executive and upper level management positions, poor onboarding experience with lack of training

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive about promoting and rewarding employees based on performance, not purely length of service. Advance more women and minorities into leadership positions.

    Keep managers who are good leaders . Stop hiring dorky college grads with no experience and cnt manage in an establishment they have never worked in.
