Founded by the Pritzker family, many employees say a family feeling permeates this big hotel chain. According to one: “It is like a family company, even though it is a large corporation.” Another: “Hyatt is very much a family to me. I’ve worked at many other Hyatts and have always felt welcomed.” New employees are welcomed to the family by spending a night as a guest at their hotel.
