    Pros

    Kimpton is super employee focused and very genuine in their approach. They allow you to be YOU without a script; creativity is always welcomed. The Company also promotes internal development and pushes for you to create your own career path. This Company hired me into an Exec role when I was six months pregnant; imagine that! I've got nothing but good things to say!

    Cons

    Sometimes we can be a little too lean at Kimpton; not enough people to accomplish the goals that we need to accomplish; but overall, its a great Company to work for!

    Pros

    Great company for advancement opportunities. We’re in the heart of CityScape in Phoenix AZ (one of the fastest growing cities in America).

    Cons

    Getting a promotion was harder than I thought. I’ve had ideas for Honorbar, wine hour, RS amenities, RS office, RS computer, RS department (separated from office), and more. Yet every single time my ideas were put off to the side by management. No employee description menu.
