    Pros

    Strong culture, employees in some depts generally enjoy working together. Great building and location. Access to senior leaders.

    Cons

    No accountability for bad managers. Vision not well defined - tends to follow the same thing over and over in sourcing bad properties. Reputation is declining in market.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on growth and investment in properties that people will want to stay in. New construction, not the bldgs that no one wants. Review managers and their treatment of employees. Ethics of managers

    Pros

    An exciting Agile SAFe environment with a new and growing company. A work environment that focuses on employee engagement and encourages innovation.

    Cons

    Upper management issues and infighting destroyed the drive for a SAFe organization. Nearsightedness of upper management is destroying what could have become a world class business opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. Working late was stressful due to bickering and fighting between the VP's. It is hard to feel good about an employer when upper management can't work together.

  3. Tiring and very little appreciation for the worker.

    Treat others the way you expect to be treated

    Pros

    Number of different jobs to apply for.

    Cons

    Company does not care about its employees. They have been laying off employees every November for the past 8 years, then 2 years ago they bought two new buildings for their headquarters in Maryland and Arizona. The current CEO nor his Vice Presidents do not seem to care about who has a job or not. The Health insurance package they changed to is terrible. Constant in-fighting at the corporate offices. They put on a false front that they care about families but the truth is they don't. Your job is never secure.

    Advice to Management

    All the management at corporate needs to be replaced as well as the CEO.

  8. Run! Do not work here!

    Pros

    I get to work by myself. Free breakfast working 3rd & 1st shift.

    Cons

    Pay sucks! I started off at 7.50 an hour, only took the job cause I needed something. The owner said after my 1 week of training. I would get more, been here for 6 months, and haven't received a rasie. I work on my days off, and work longer then normal cause people come in late all the time. No Benefits.

    Advice to Management

    7.50 is not enough to live off of. I would love to see the owner and management live off 7.50 an hour.

    Pros

    Work life balance is OK. Benefits not that much.

    Cons

    There is no such thing called promotion for you unless you are in their "privileged party". The pawns seek trouble with you if you are overqualified. The bosses only listen to one side story, a way to demean you so that only "their inner party members" are promoted. Trust me, they have experience to deceive and handle people like you. Your out shown talent and effort only "give hard time to boss" unless you contribute credit to the pawns. You are a trouble maker if you are smarter than your boss and their pawns can be extremely ruthless and criticize you all the time by all means they can come up with. They see you as "a bag of faults". Be careful of your casual talks with bosses or pawns. They use that as handlers to damp your career.

    There is no compassion or conscience in this company. You are in the delusion of their words. You will find some excited reviews. Those reviewers are either in delusion or members of privileged party.

    Advice to Management

    Restore conscience and get rid of privileged party inside teams.

    Pros

    The guests were the highlight of everyday for me. I truly enjoyed working with anyone who walked in the door.

    Cons

    Terrible management. Awful. They cared more about money and less about the actual business of the hotel.

    Advice to Management

    Open up a conscience store, you'd be better off
