Company culture is frequently touted and courses are given but on a hotel management level, as in hotel managers, it is infrequently practiced with hourly employees.
Support from management
The higher level leadership, outside of Harbor Magic seems to be okay but your average employee never interacts outside of HM.
Little focus on team work at the starting level. Workers are friends of the family or friends of friends, which results in resentment from those who don't have the connection due to the relaxed policies toward favorited individuals.
This company is a prime example of the unfair wage gap between males and females. Women are often treated disrespectfully and are less likely to be promoted into management positions.
There is little to know career development and no visible desire for management to further their employees or push them to their best.
Office / Work Environment
It's relatively safe but for hourly employees there are no benefits until more than a year after starting and no care to individual needs. (Sickness, injury etc...)
This company, like most, care if you show up to the job. Not if you're healthy or otherwise well adjusted.
Suggestions for improvement
- Hire actual leaders and put them in leadership positions, not just people who will do it because no one else will.
What I like about the company
The office I worked in was conveniently located.
What I dislike about the company
The overall culture is not what is touted by the larger company. On a hotel level, especially within Harbor Magic, there is little desire in the way of management to see entry level (ie. hourly) employees succeed. There are often unfair expectations placed on employees making barely above minimum wage and wage growth is very limited.
