Very competitive amongst major hospitality companies
Operations Supervisor/Events (Current Employee) – Wichita, KS – September 9, 2015
The work/life balance is ridiculously slanted in favor of work, but most in the industry should understand that going in. Salary and benefits are competitive, but not a game changer. The company does really put a lot of effort and money into making the culture something special, and for associates, it is. For anyone in middle to upper leadership, it's a different ballgame. As a leader, you are expected to encourage your associates to the point of patronizing them, but there is no focus on encouraging anyone in leadership, and the only training/coaching efforts in place institutionally are haphazard at best and usually quickly forgotten. If anyone is applying to work for the Hyatt as an associate, you will absolutely love the experience (besides the pay, which is a bit low at the associate level), but leadership will usually spend most days feeling defeated and chastised by increasingly demanding superiors, trying to look good for the one's pressuring them from above - for leadership, I would look elsewhere.
