Good working environment!
I really miss working in the accounting team for Nova Hotels! I didn't have much interaction with much of the other management, but the president did invite head office staff and upper management on monthly get togethers for food and drinks. I thought this was a great team building exercise and eased people from work stress before kicking off to a long weekend, so I really appreciated the workplace culture.
I really liked that the accounting department worked as a "team" in which we could bounce ideas off each other or help one another when stuck. We took turns buying chocolates and candies and also coffee for each other because we all needed brain food in the office with the occasional lunch days where we would all decide to go out or order in too.
Deadlines would only get stressful when we fell short on time due to holidays or missing team members on vacation, but for the most part, it was steady-paced and not too stressful. Everyone was always willing to help out if someone fell behind.

Poor management and crass waiteress in the bar and bsnquets
I was there for one week. I found the supervisor who trained me was really lazy n aloof. The staff were very clique and didn't really train me thoroughly. One girl called in sick on my second day and threw me to the wolves. On my roe they stated I was terminated when I quit and even sent a message stating I'm no longer interested in being employed there. I was within my probation period and did not need to give her 2 weeks.

Poor management, every thing is employees fault, favoritism, don't honor your seniority, had a very upsetting encounter with a guest. Was told he would be kicked out of the hotel but showed up again the next week because "he's a regular guest" management has no loyalty, front desk management has no idea what they are doing, the only good part about working here was the employees.
