    Pros

    Great locations, lots of employee benefits, if you are looking for a long term career this is a great place.

    Cons

    Minimal room for growth, Low pay, lots of old hospitality mentalities that hinder potential growth. Most of the business caters to large groups and corporate bookings if you are looking for a cool place on the vanguard of hospitality innovation you'll be frustrated to find this is not the environment its pitched as.

    I worked at Terranea full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent place to work, which offers beautiful views and a comfortable work environment. Senior Leadership were constantly looking for ways to make the associate experience a better one. The best meals I have ever had in a work environment. But even better colleagues and leaders. President and Human Resources have maintained very easy ways to get in contact with them should an associate have a concern or suggestion.

    Cons

    Only con of working here that I found is you won't ever want to leave, and once you do, you will always want to come back.

    Dirty. I saw them serve contaminated food and spoke to several managers about it and nothing happened.
