In my time with Hyatt I watched a lot of great employees leave for jobs with better benefits and pay. It was almost impossible to maintain a positive work culture when key players are constantly being replaced.
Grand Hyatt Dubai is a great school to kick start your career. Surrounded with experienced peer and an amazing working environment, the organization provides a platform for people to grow and learn at the same time.
Interval Leisure Group is a company only interested in profits. The work staff was slowly replaced with less experienced people. In addition to the poor company culture was the Franklin Templeton building. There is no heating unit in the building. This was incredibly uncomfortable when the fans circulated cold air every day. Staff had to wear hooded jackets to keep the drafts off of them.
In two years this property has been through 3 GM's, and 4 Controllers Budgeting and Forecasting has been challenging, frustrating and based on fictitious numbers generated by the sales team. There has been no enforcement of Department heads adhering to budgets, of following purchasing policies. These actions have caused every controller to resign, leaving me to "hold down the fort" until replacements have been found. This has left me with a feeling that the property may close or change hands soon.
