    Pros

    Name looks good on resume (one of only two certified conference center hotels in NYC). Yep, that's about all.

    Cons

    I worked @ MB a looong time ago - ten yrs, but after reading the post from another sales asst in 2010 I had to post a review bc it seems NOTHING CHANGES. I had the EXACT SAME experience as the sales assistant did ten yrs later - absolutely no training and when you, of course, begin drowning bc you don't even know how the computer system works and are expected to pump out tons of contracts and proposals daily, they huff and puff and then have you pull up a chair behind someone who's just as slammed and clearly annoyed at being watched. Nice.

    The best is that after about six weeks they forced me to attend "training" for an entire day - on office safety. Yes, you sit there watching videos on how to properly pick up and put down a box knowing that you're going to have to stay late every day for the next week bc you still don't have any idea how the computer system works and will have dozens of proposals to get out.

    I too zoomed out of there in five mths (shortest stay I've ever had @ a job). Apparently this is simply the way it is @ the ol' MB, it's not just a bad set of circumstances.

    Advice to Management

    No advice - they've been doing this for at least ten yrs if not longer, they clearly do not care.

    Pros

    You will easily be recognized as an expert due to the fact that majority of the employees are below average in terms of performance and knowledge.

    Cons

    Complete lack of appreciation for employees. Senior management's expectancies are very high with very low salaries and poor benefits.

    Company budget is very tight and purchasing is a big challenge as majority of your purchase request above the forecasted budget will be denied.

    Advice to Management

    Be more aware of the concept of proper investment and learn how to appreciate your employees and 'work with' them, not 'rule over' them.

    I have been working at Millennium Hotels and Resorts full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good experience for young professionals as it is a difficult property.

    Cons

    Lack of professionalism overall; employees are treated very poorly with no appreciation.

    Union is VERY difficult to work with.

    Turnover for management is very high.

    Pros

    Senior Management in Colorado looks out for employees.

    Cons

    Singapore ownership is very biased. Makes discretionary (negative) adjustments to bonus awards.

    Pros

    Most of the people in the Colorado office are great, hardworking employees. Pay is about average.

    Cons

    Management/Ownership is the worst I have ever experiences in my long career. The Asian direction & Philosophy is terrible, even to the point of disgusting. Nepotism is in full form. Chinese family operated at top management level, with a few not knowing what they are doing, especially one person in particular who runs the show in the U.S. (the U.S. team knows who that person is).

    Advice to Management

    A good start would be to get rid of the one person mentioned in the "Cons" paragraph. Trust the U.S. team to take care of things in the U.S.

    I worked at Millennium Hotels and Resorts full-time

    Pros

    There has been a loyal staff for many years , but they too are dwindling very very fast

    Cons

    Everything, you think about a building and all the mechanics of an old building that had band aids out on it for years, you can only imagine what happens, everything busts, literally, and guess what you have to tell customers about it or try to relocate them. Then when you quit they will walk you and deprive you of your pay, even though there are no clients to take to a new company, oh an they may tell you that the job you are doing is no good too, and post your job and start hiring complete jerks because they can't find anyone else to work there, that's just at the local level. If you move on to a more regional or global level simply forget it, and why anyone continues to work for this company is baffling, but we all have our personal agendas and I get that, especially when you are close to retirement age.

    I have been working at Millennium Hotels and Resorts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Its paying the bills until we find a new job. Benefits almost average.

    Cons

    Huge loss of people at all levels including corp. office and seemingly no plan for stabilizing or turning the company around...they've been working at it for the almost 2 years I've been here and nothing changes. Hotel is broken down with no relief in sight.

    Advice to Management

    Top management out of touch...no F&B leadership, manage by fear, minimal input from hotels. Stop worrying so much about China/Singapore and visit the poorly maintained hotels. Locate a president who might consider staying more than 12 months.
