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

    Pros

    I believed I worked there 2011 but it does not allow me to add this year. Scott Williams at Patriot Place (Foxboro) is a phenomenal manager who is fair, great personality, hands on manager who you will gain so much knowledge from and he truly cares. Met great employees, room for advancement all over the world, pay is pretty good for the hotel industry and the room discounts are a huge bonus. Very busy during peak times so you won't be bored often and pretty flexible with time off if they are able to except event days. However, they did shorter shifts occasionally on those days. You will have a blast and meet so many people. It is amazing experience if you haven't tried the hotel industry. Great teamwork.

    Cons

    Slow season is pretty rough and make the days drag on so ask mgmt for anything to keep you busy. Follow up on making sure checklist's are done. pre check in's, special request's in am so it is much smoother for pm shift. Especially during slow time's employees seem to overlook.

    Advice to Management

    Keep Scott Williams on as long as you can as he makes a huge impact on everything at the hotel and/or promote him/give raise as he deserves this more than anyone I know. Restaurant at the time required more efficiency and structure, management, menu etc changed to often. Have employees fill out anonymous survey's unless they want to add there name on recommended improvements, frustration's on areas that need to be improved etc.

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

    Pros

    The company itself is very hourly employee focused and takes great care of their hourly hires.

    Cons

    Management get's the shaft here. This location is so focused on not becoming union that you have to baby the hourly employees.

    I worked at Renaissance Hotels full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone seems to get along fairly well.

    Cons

    Some people try to control too much.

    Advice to Management

    Bonuses/ regular significant raises would greatly increase moral. Especially for positions that should not be considered entry level.

    Same as any other place it depends on who n how your managed. Teamwork was not important at this particular hotel

    Pros

    great benefits considering I was a cocktail waitress

    Cons

    Management could have been better. Not entirely their fault...definitely overworked. Employees that have been there a long time pretty much did as they pleased and everyone had to deal with it though.

    Pros

    The work environment is very friendly. The people there accept new employees with open arms and it feels like family.

    Cons

    There is no set work schedule so you aren't able to plan much for your personal life because you never know what days you will have off.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to give all employees a set schedule so that they are able to have a good balance between home and work.
