Pros

Great off-property training opportunities, as well as great Hyatt Corporate trainers who travel to your property to ensure the best possible business practices.

Sometimes smaller properties get overlooked for larger ones... As could be the case with any organization.

    I worked at Hyatt full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Working for Hyatt offered good benefits and great hotel rates around the world. It was nice as a bartender to see different people every singe day. You had some regulars if you worked during lunch, but at night was when you met some reaally good people. Management was fair, while still adhearing to the Hyatt brand. Had the opportunity to work some functions that paid well (open bar) which gave more insight to different operations inside the hotel.

    Cons

    Other than being a big hotel and a lot of walking around to get to things, I do not have many cons to list. All in all, it was a great place to work.

    I have been working at Hyatt full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Able to mover around the country, meet lots of new people, free and discounted rooms. The ability to be promoted in 8-months. You get to learn the different aspects of all the departments in your division. The pay is ok, I think they are at least in the top 5 for salaries. The hours can be long but you do get comp days if you work 6 days or more during the week.

    Cons

    There are days you could work up to 17 hrs or more, which means less time at home with family and friends. The more you move up and around with the company all your friends tend to be with those you work with because they work the same crazy schedule you do. To get the positions you want to further your career you do have to move to a different city or state which can be hard if you are married and have kids. And really hard if your spouse has a job that is not relocatable or pays better than yours. Also it not as easy to sell a house these days so that is something else to think about so if you find yourself in that situation you maybe stuck there for awhile.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like to see the company open up new hotels or run Hyatt managed hotels in markets where the other big 3-4 other chains are. Also remove the ceiling pay for management positions, a lot of good managers are turning down positions because their pay is higher than the position they are going for. Getting a promotion and no is not a good feeling and does not support the Hyatt saying of the only way to get paid more is to get promoted and be ready to move around every 1-2 yrs. Need to change the employee review system either make the scoring system 1-5 instead of the 1-3, a we ask them to give us all 5's on the Q12 and they say why, all I got was all two's and 2-3 three's on my review.
