Starting salary is pretty good and entry level positions are plentiful (see: www.collegegrad.com/topemployers/hyatt.shtml, or www.experience.com/alumnus/channel?channel_id=careers&page_id=great_employers)
Benefits are ok, but can get a bit costly if youÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚Â™re single, you can claim domestic partners, and that can be a plus.
Travel requirements depend on your position (property specific vs. corporate office) and location (Domestic vs. International).
The best part about working for Hyatt is the Employee Discounts. You are entitled to a certain amount of free hotel rooms per year (after 1 year of employment), and discounted (and I mean cheap) rates from the day you start, plus very generous discounts on home furnishings from their online store.
On a corporate level, the travel and entertainment policy is lax (it would be pretty hypocritical for a hospitality company to be strict on that sort of thing), and the office community is friendly. Every year, each department has their own ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚ÂœoutingÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚Â to a baseball game or something to that effect, and the whole corporate office has a corporate wide event.
Management encourages outside the box thinking, and career development/enhancement. There are many opportunities to move around within the company, and field experience is strongly encouraged.
Hyatt is known for being one of the top companies in diversity (www.hyatt.com/hyatt/about/diversity/index.jsp) and has many programs to support career development for such individuals.
