Employees rate Denham 11.1% higher than the overall average
I have been working at InterContinental Hotels Group as a contractor (More than a year)
Friendly and supportive atmosphere. On the whole people across the business seem to work together rather than against each other - which is nice!
While my team seems to be agile and can get approvals quickly, I hear other areas of the business can be far more bureaucratic and slow moving - frustrating some who work on a project only for nothing to come of it, or for it to be painfully slow to get approval.
Advice to Management
Have a clear mission for franchisees as well as guests. Streamline decision making so all areas of the business can move quickly in practice.
I applied online. I interviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group (Denham, South East England, England) in August 2017.
an initial and informal telephone interview, formal face to face with a presentation, then a last minute 'meet the team' interview. The hiring manager tried to be friendly but didn't quite succeed and the scenario that subsequently led to me rejecting the offer was painful and unnecessary. In short they are big corporate company, based in the middle of nowhere that don't seem to have adopted any modern employee practices. Seemed like everyone there was young and single, they had no sympathy nor interest in being flexible for anyone with children/family. The whole thing was very odd and if that is how they treat all potential staff, they're going to have a real lack of talent working for them in the future.
