Great Company, Management in my department wasn't that great

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsYou do get to meet and work with some great and demanding people. Clean upscale work environment. Easy access to the company from the entire DC region. Mr. Marriott is very easy going and had some great Christmas parties. Plenty of work and not sitting around wondering where is the work.

ConsPay was very small especially for this area and amount of work I did for them. I started working here after several years out of work due to the recession. I knew not to take this position because I didn't like the manager during the interview, but was desperate for a job and pushed into it by family members. The employees and manager had also told me about all the prior people working at this position that never stayed or were fired. Since my dismissal, they have gone through numerous employees and still cannot find someone ideal to work with them.

I had to deal with a manager that blamed all of her problems on her employees when she was the one creating the problems, was constantly in to work late and left early and only worked 3 or 4 days at the company a week. I look back and realize some of the things she did not do or had created problems with is actually quite funny, I realize how much better off I am now that I don't have to deal with her anymore.

Many, many times I was left to do a certain amount of work that was meant for 3 people. One small complaint from an employee about me being late for their appointment or anything else turned big with my manager even though I may have still been working with a VP or CEO on an issue and keeping from making it to the other problem. Department Christmas party was extremely embarrassing, management literally got drunk and was singing and such in a very well known restaurant while a few of us were sitting there wondering how much more time do we need to be there.

Advice to Senior ManagementBeing let go from this company was the best thing that could have happened to me by them. For a while I thought I could make a career with them. Since that period of time, I've found how much better other areas or businesses are as compared to Host. Better benefits, respect, health care, You have to look hard, but Host Health Care is not a cost effective and good service, it has many flaws in it. Management, you have your work cut out for you and I'm glad I'm not going to be a part of the fix

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
