  • Hilton Nicole Anderson

    • Name

      Nicole Anderson

    • Position

      Manager of Non Voice Operations

      Addison, TX

    When Nicole Anderson first came to Hilton six years ago, she was looking to dream a new dream.  Nicole and her husband owned their own real estate business, and with one child graduating high school and another starting kindergarten, she was looking for a career change.

    Initially hired as a Work from Home Customer Care Coordinator, Nicole has served Hilton’s customers from the very beginning. “We should be thinking about everything we do as customer-centric. If we forget that part, we will fail,” said Nicole.

    She soon promoted to Manager of Guest Assistance leading the voice operations piece of the business.  Most recently, Nicole transitioned to Manager of Non Voice Operations in Hilton’s Reservations and Customer Care organization.  In this role, Nicole manages eight lines of business comprised of a collection of service and support teams with nearly 200 employees reporting to her. 

    When Nicole first transitioned from owning her own business to a full-time position, she worried if her family life would suffer. What she found, however, was that Hilton encouraged thriving at work and at home.

    Nicole’s best advice for women looking to grow their career is to stay present in whatever role you’re given. When at work, she is present at work and when she’s at home, she is unplugged and present with her family. Nicole knows that as women, we’re too quick to criticize ourselves for not being perfectly “balanced” at work and at home.

    “It’s hard to be a woman because I don’t want to be expected to turn opportunities for career growth because I also value family life. I’m extremely committed to both my role at work and the role I play at home with family. I’m committed to embracing all opportunities in all my roles.”

    Nicole credits her success to two things: curiosity and availability. She has continuously remained curious about new opportunities and always available to pitch in whenever needed.

    “I’ve always felt Hilton supports my development and rounding out my skill set. The more I volunteered to pitch in, the more I put my personal brand out there and people become aware of my capabilities,” said Nicole. 

    In Nicole’s day-to-day, her favorite part of her position is the people. She loves seeing her team members get excited about an idea or have an “ah-ha” moment. Nicole believes lining up others for a win is a win for her as well.

  • Hilton Gladys Adams-Rhodes

    • Name

      Gladys Adams-Rhodes

    • Position

      Director, Digital Product Engineer

      Addison, TX

    When Gladys Adams-Rhodes graduated college, her goal was clear: join a Fortune 500 company with global brand power. After seventeen years with Hilton in multiple departments, she has shown how you can have a variety of career experiences within the same company when working for a large, global brand. “It’s easy to remain attached to a company that not only offers great benefits and competitive career opportunities, but also cares about investing in your personal development,” said Gladys.

    Having studied Computer Information Systems at Louisiana Tech University and learning how to code early on, technology was an obvious choice for Gladys. Gladys began her career at Hilton in National Sales, working with Hilton’s sales technology. Driven by ambition and curiosity, she was quickly promoted to management roles across multiple business units including Web, Content, Revenue Management, Marketing, and Technology. Gladys’ technology skills served her well in these roles where she contributed to projects such as Hilton Honors’ first iOS mobile app, mobile websites, and the new Connected Rooms technology, which enables TV, lighting, and room temperature control from the Hilton Honors mobile app.

    Today Gladys is the Director, Digital Product Engineer. In this role, Gladys continues to build consumer-facing website experiences for Hilton’s portfolio of 14 brands that millions of travelers access daily to plan a trip and book a hotel reservation online. Each day, she is empowered to ensure Hilton’s technology provides the best digital experiences for guests.  If you ask Gladys what she is most proud of in her work, she says it’s when she’s traveling using her Hilton Work Perks and hears a guest complimenting a website or mobile product that she helped bring to life!

    Gladys’s advice for women starting their careers at Hilton and beyond? “Fear is not part of the success equation – but planning and ambition are necessary to grow at any company.”

Parental Leave

For new mothers who give birth, this will be in addition to the eight-week maternity leave, for a total of 10 weeks of fully paid leave. By providing full pay replacement, we help reduce the financial barriers and enable our new parents to more fully participate in the lives of their new families, form bonds with their new children, and reduce stress. The additional paid time also gives our new moms two more weeks to physically recuperate before rejoining the workforce. We are proud to offer more maternity leave than most employers in the U.S., and to exceed all those in the hospitality industry.
