    I worked at Meliá Hotels International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great place to speed up your career, if you find the right sponsor. Learnt a lot here and got a lot of responsibility very quickly. If you concentrate on career only (without insisting on improving salary-wise) and are absolutely globally flexible, there are many opportunities.

    Cons

    Ridiculous salary even for the hospitality industry, management development program has no content or structure - only marketing They put the maximum of pressure on employees (low salary, long working hours that don't comply with collective labour agreement, minimum no. of employees, no benefits) to maximize profits year over year.

    Advice to Management

    The director of my department was great, but he didn't manage to stick to his promises as upper management changes plans and strategy with the weather. it's time for them to realize that employees are their main resource and treat them with respect and some appreciation (other than verbally, once a year). Additionally, upper management has absolutely no clue what's going on at hotel level, eg that 80% of their... projects die of poor communication and are simply not realized.

    Pros

    -much responsibility, but this was because no workers were hired and supervisors were too busy -free food

    -bad working environment (many people insulted other people behind their backs) -low wage -really hierarchical -no respect is shown from director as intern, even if you deliver great results that bring back a huge amount of money

    I have been working at Meliá Hotels International full-time

    Pros

    A good company to learn about hospitality. Good employee discounts. In some areas innovation is encouraged although some times they dont quite know how to actually make it happen.

    Cons

    HR dont have a clue of what they are doing, it is shocking. Salaries are not great. Be prepared to be promoted and only start getting paid your new salary in a year or so.

    Advice to Management

    It woulndt hurt to keep in mind that people work for a living.
