    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at New Yorker Hotel full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Creative, spontaneous and always on your feet for someone who is new in the industry - I had a great mentor who let me explore my strengths and weaknesses, a mentor who did not clip my wings but let me take flight. There is great camaraderie, management who is always willing to help and guide, co-workers who encourage and a work environment that is flexible and innovative.

    Cons

    New Management doesn't want to find the niche for the new evolving market.

    Advice to Management

    Hire new employees who thinks outside the box, who enjoys the competition and hits the ground running. Listen to your clients and explore your target market and be more open to new ideas and opportunities.

    I have been working at New Yorker Hotel part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay if you have the experience needed.

    Cons

    Next to zero air during the summer. If you get lobby or HQ post, then you're good. Every other post will have you sweat to death in your full suit, that is required uniform.

    Advice to Management

    Get Some Air In Those Halls! Someones going to catch a heat stroke during the summer, you just watch.

    Pros

    seems like the members within each department get along well. A familial atmosphere with many experienced employees

    Cons

    the morale among employees was not very high, and the relationships between departments were less than happy.

    Advice to Management

    spend more quality time with key members in each department, and have meetings between departments to improve relations and cooperation

    Pros

    It is a brand new hotel in a great location convenient to all transportation. You apparently don't need any previous hotel experience or professional experience to get a management position there

    Cons

    Recent senior staff changes means there is now a top to bottom lack of experienced hotel management professionals which makes it impossible to impliment the best business practices of the industry. The hotel is being run by an amateaur management staff. Morale is low, communication is worse, customer review scores are dropping fast.

    Advice to Management

    Learn best practices, get some hotel professionals, communicate with the teams, learn your markets, learn your competitors, learn your business.
