    I worked at LodgeNet full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great work, challegeing. Loved it. I enjoyed (almost) every day I worked there. Benifits are top notch.

    Cons

    After 10+ years, I found out after being laid off I was getting a minimun of $10/hr less than my male co workers with the same title, most employed after me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer the same (or at least similar) perks to your employees outside of Sioux Falls. I worked for this company for 10+ and never felt part of it.

    Lodgenet Technicians will never afford the American Dream

    I have been working at LodgeNet

    Pros

    The company provides a work van and allows the technicians to take the van home. This saves on fuel expenses for the technician. There is a good amount of freedom provided to the technicians to allow them to prioritize the work that needs to be performed. The working conditions are generally clean and the atmosphere is positive.

    Cons

    The yearly raises are only 2 to 2.5% per year. The cost of living goes up by 4 to 4.5% annually. This means that after 10 years of service an employee will actually be 20% poorer than when he/she started. When a technician is promoted from FSR1 to FSR2 or FSR2 to FSR3 there is no pay raise. There is no room for advancement. The technicians that are working in the field either have been or will be working the same routes in 10 to 20 years. Along the way more workload is added and there is no fiscal compensation. For the degree of technical expertise that is required to perform the job the compensation is below the lowest amount in a comparable range for other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your most valuable asset...your employees. Provide them with compensation with which their lives may flourish.
