    Former Employee - Food and Beverage in Denver, CO
    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Ritz-Carlton full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Discount on rooms Get to meet some interesting people

    Cons

    Work/life balance long hours expected of supervisors and management Pay Dealing with pretentious/entitled people every day (employees and customers) Management favoritism Lack of upward movement in some positions

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting them over work you, if you push back they will have to respond. In an effort to include everyone because they are empowered many managers are letting the mouse run the cat house so to speak. Also don't always side with the guests and take employee complaints of sexual harassment seriously.
