    I worked at Ritz-Carlton full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The benefits, and wages where higher than comparable positions.

    Cons

    The high turnover rate. Getting a promotion is more about who you know, than your value to the company

    Advice to Management

    Seems as though there are too many managers, often with overlapping jobs. This can cause a heavily micromanaged workplace

    Pros

    great company benefits paid vacation traveling was easy with room rates.

    Cons

    I was with the company for 3 years.. everyday of the 3 years I was treated like a dog. even when I was pregnant. no respect what so ever for anyone. I finally left the company with a heavy heart but head held high.. if they didn't want you working there.. they found a way to get you out.. Dirty Dirty.

    Advice to Management

    RESPECT the people that work for you. they may stay longer
