    I worked at Davidson Hotels & Resorts

    Pros

    I very much enjoyed the people I worked with (as people...not necessarily as co-workers you have to rely on)

    Cons

    Corporate doesn't seem to care about their property employees. They expect a lot but give little tools and resources to accomplish these things. People are not held responsible what so ever but then they let the good ones go instead of trying to keep them within the company. I met a lot of great people here but wasn't upset to leave the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your property employees. The same thing can be said year after year on TMOS surveys and nothing is done about it...barely even acknowledged.

    I have been working at Davidson Hotels & Resorts full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great company to gain experience in a professional setting for college students to further their customer service, multi tasking, confidence skills.

    Cons

    Unfortunately they barely promote within the company. There are new front desk managers every few months. There is a lot of politics within the company and it's hard for them to maintain an image or appreciate their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Want to keep employees? Show them more appreciation and follow through with promises.

    Amazing people in corporate, but they are not in touch with property level issues

    I have been working at Davidson Hotels & Resorts full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Extremely genuine people at the corporate level. If you work hard, they will reward you for it. The CEO John Belden is a remarkable human being. He is someone to look up to and respect. I am extremely loyal to this company, to a fault.

    Cons

    Having been with this company many years, they are beginning to show major flaws. The hotel SOPs are incredibly old, outdated, and not in line with the modern reality of operating a hotel. In an industry that is always changing, why hang on to the past? The reliance on old fashioned paperwork is disturbing.

    However, the corporate team has no idea what is going on at their properties. I have witnessed highly questionable actions by most of the GMs I have worked for. Training has been getting worse and worse. Hourly workers are paying dearly for it. As time goes on, my morale and nearly all my co workers morale are in the toilet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to come into the 21st century. Watch your GMs!!
