Company Culture

What culture? There was an attempt to bring people together, but this "feeling of being respected and belonging" only lasted 3 days

Support from management

You never have any set work times, and you will be more jetlagged than the people actually traveling. Managers don't change this, as they work 9-5 or 10-6 from Mon-Fri. A poor habit of speaking down to people facing guests needs to stop.

Teamwork

The individual teams are good. Only a few outliers who enjoy throwing people under the bus to cover their own mistakes.

Freedom to work independently

Workload is actually fair. The amount of overnights, are not

Overall compensation for your work

Pay and insurance? Great.

Environmental Friendliness

The company pretends to be sustainable, but never does anything to actually "be sustainable"

Work-Life Balance

So.. You have to work 14 days in a row to get ONE day you wish off. Even if you have been there for 6 years, requesting a specific day off will backfire

Challenging Work

No. You are spoken to as if you don't understand anything

Suggestions for improvement

  • Find out what employees need from their workplace (i.e. security, work-life balance, etc.) and why they quit. The turnover rate is ridiculous, which could be changed if management listened to their employees

What I like about the company

The Front Desk team, engineers, HK staff were all amazing.

What I dislike about the company

The way management spoke to their employees; schedules; no motivation given
