    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Sarova Hotels full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - The level of responsibility that you have. -Important role to drive the business forward -Developing a wealth of knowledge in a high demand environment -Basic training courses and opportunities. - Cross-training opportunities (sales, reception, brasserie, housekeeping, spa, operations) - Progression in your role (example: reception -> sales -> manager)

    Cons

    - Negativity in the workplace, dampens the atmosphere, and causes friction. - Unprofessionalism, how management reacts to staff is dissapointing. - HIghly stressful, due to workload (if you do not manage your time, you can become overwhelmed) - No clear role, as you will likely be taking on multiple responsibilites. - Workplace gossip. - Lack of motivation from management. - High staff turnover

    Advice to Management

    Motivate your staff, and decrease tension in the workplace. Train managers and supervisors on how to set an example to their team through their actions and how they react to situations. Treat your employees well, and they will treat your guests and clients well in return, and improve their productivity. Sadly it is apparent that there is a lack of this, which results in employees feeling disheartened,... undervalued and underappreciated, in which they then leave the workplace. It would be essential to see improvement in this area.
