good place
The work is hard but the staffs are so friendly and thus I didn't find that difficult. The most enjoyable part of the job is all the hotel staffs are treated equally and there is a facility of lunch and dinner as well.

I enjoyed working there.
Its a very busy place.i was doing 12-13 hours each day. There is no work life blance for any of the chefs. It teaches you time management and organization skill.

Fast-paced environment
Working at the Langham my experience wasn't as good as I anticipated.The reason for this is they were meant to shut down this year, but since then a new management team has been introduced and there have been lots of internal fights within the organisation which ultimately affects every facet of the hotel, including Banquets, where I worked. The work life balance was not ideal as we were rarely given breaks even though working for longer than 6 hours, the staff were all on visas as well all from Asian countries so there was a communication barrier there as well. However in saying that, I did gain many valuable skills in relation to customer service, organisation of stock, and setting up rooms for functions.

Political Managers
Seems like a nice place to work with at first. Found out after all that its all politics. They say its nice place to grow your career but they wont allow you to move to other department or level up in your career if they dont want to.

Political environment and negligent HR
Communication is pathetic.
HR always claim to be improving things but just say what you want to hear to make you happy but nothing improves.

Working conditions need improvement.

Overtime needs to be paid.

Wages are low. Promotions are rare. No annual review.

It's more about who you know than your skill and technique which is ridiculous.

Work you like crazy but don't wanna pay you for extra hours.

You'd expect better from a renowned international hotel.

Management has their head up their bum.
Pros
made some friends
Cons
Hours, not being paid correctly, not being paid overtime, management is pathetic

No sponsorship given
the establishment doesn't offer sponsorship to rank and file chef and only to management level chef. Overall workplace is good but not to the expectation of an international hotel that couldn't sponsor their valued employees

Great company to work for but does have its issues
Great place to work, everyone is friendly & gets on well.

Social place to work, don't be surprised if you don't end up paying for a drink on a night out!


Negatives

Job security was an issue as they stopped employing people on long term contracts (that may be different now)


Staff food is revolting & you have to pay for it!


Pay is pretty low compared to their competitors.

5 Star Hotel
Beautiful work place, a typical 8hour shifts with a variety of beauty treatments. Just like everywhere else management could be a bit more empathetic and the hotel could be a bit more organised however with all the hotel perks and wonderful team (in all departments) it all makes up for all the cons.

Besides being far from where I live there also is no rotation for the weekend, weekend work every weekend is a must. These are a couple main reasons why I couldn't stay on board, I am a solo mum and have to leave home at 7am and arrive back home at 730pm the lastest.
Pros
Hotel Perks
Cons
Management aren't so empathetic
