    Pros

    Great company to work for, you will find yourself facing many challenges but that is the fun part of the job is figuring everything out on your own and leaving room for your own creativity.

    Cons

    Spa needed lots of work and minimal budget was available. Long days and nights. Protocols needed to be put into place and working with resilient staff members.

    Advice to Management

    Great Job. Hotel manager was awesome to work with she cared about every aspect of the work that you put in and she was just an awesome person to work for.

  7. Below Standard

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Sofitel Hotels full-time

    Pros

    The people in front line are the only positive element from this hotel. A lot of work to be done so the task is very far from boring. A good job for someone that likes working under pressure.

    Cons

    Standard as low as expected of the only 5 star in Rabat. Lots of work needed in all departments. The management is unorganized and usually takes one step in the right direction then three in the wrong one.

    Advice to Management

    Put in place standard operating procedures and logistics; make sure the implement them and have strong supervision. Create bonds between front line and management in order to keep the standards in place and overseen.

    I have been working at Sofitel Hotels part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    50% off Great team Great Management Great environment Opportunities to train more, work in other departments etc. They treat staff very fairly, as soon as something is wrong they will fix it ASAP One of the best hotels I have worked for. Great work life balance Discount on local gym

    Cons

    Pay rises are done annually (perhaps to make people stay longer) Not much else...

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for treating all ambassadors as important to the company and treating us as equals instead of talking down to us.

    I worked at Sofitel Hotels full-time

    Pros

    Great Potential if Upper Management is open to new ideas

    Cons

    Quit the backstabbing, the gossip and favoritism. Spend more time learning and doing your job and less time trying to figure out how to sabotage employees who you personally do no care for. I have seen some incredible employees get fired, or forced to leave only because upper management did not like them on a personal level.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being Hippocrates and act professionally, is easy to make your money when you are mediocre.
