    Going the wrong direction

    Back of the House (Current Employee)
    Grapevine, TX

    ProsPay is good (for now), Generally a fun place to work, Discounts at other hotels, Hotel generally tries to treat employees well

    ConsA new managment company (gaylord doesn't own this company anymore, not sure if the CEO listed is still in charge) is taking this place in a very troubling direction, new positions coming in paying less than current employees which probably means cuts down the road, poor benefits pkg, career opportunities will be limited, very poor work/life balance, disconnect with Senior Mgmt., unreasonable goals and demands

    Advice to Senior Managementget back to what made this hotel great - taking care of the employees

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
