I worked at Ritz-Carlton full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Even front line employees have a great amount of freedom on how to do things. Plenty of training, opportunity to do cross training in other departments.
Great growth opportunities as the company prefers to promote own employees instead of taking somebody from outside. Good staff food.

Cons

All usual cons of hospitality industry; dealing with rude or drunk customers, shifts, working on week-ends etc.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Nothing really. I think it is a top you can get from hospitality industry.

    I have been working at Ritz-Carlton full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, training, branding/ resume builder, experience, challenges will force you to grow, no hand holding, VIP's, awesome teamwork, Some really awesome leaders (as with anywhere), good cross departmental relationships

    Cons

    Work life balance, (as with anywhere people can be burned out), contrary to popular belief they do not always pay the highest salaries do your homework and ask for what you really want, lack of respect for employees when it comes to hourly staff communication

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you know that there is financial discomfort and that a resolution is cutting the hours of your line employees tell them in advance that this is a possibility. We would advise our clients of any conflicts, the same courtesy should g to your staff so they may also prepare. Seasonal is one thing, rolling months is another.
