    Pros

    I wish I had a bigger list of Pros. the lower level managements (not corporate management) seem to know what they're doing, but theres not much flexibility for which they can make decisions on their own.

    Cons

    Corporate hires their friends, who have no business/experience running hotels/restaurants. Corporate pays their employees crap. Most employees struggle to live on what they make. There's no incentive for employees to want to work hard. Crap pay, and long hours=unhappy employees

    Advice to Management

    Rethink your company values. Happy employees make the business more successful...unhappy employees=less successful.

    Pros

    Great experience, networking, overall operational value with 35-40 hours per week along with potential overtime in busy months.

    Cons

    Weak hourly rate. $100 a week for rent if living on or off premise if you are in need of housing. Hourly rate was not suitable and living on my own with bills hurt me greatly. They expect the rent money not a day late therefore I was not even close to bringing a strong net amount home each week. Housing was also a headache. Rooming 4 people in an apartment does not work with the weak amenities they offer. Co workers were nice, but there were a handful who acted arrogant for no reason.

    Advice to Management

    Create a stronger, positive working environment and choose managers who are more outgoing and willing to help out employees when needed.

    Pros

    Few. Some of the people you meet are nice enough, but nobody lasts long enough to really form bonds with

    Cons

    Say goodbye to any kind of social life, relationships, and family. You are expected to be at the beck and call of the hotel. Also, get used to being broke. There is a reason why 90% of staff is on some form of government assistance.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people what they are worth, concentrate on the core of people who know their jobs, and stop the revolving door of know nothing employees

    Pros

    You do get to work in nice locations. Sometimes the employee housing is nice, sometimes not. You get to meet a lot of people, however most in the F&B industry are drunks. If you like to get hammered and sexually harassed with your boss, this is for you!

    Cons

    The owners all the way down the management team legitimately don't care about the staff or the customer as long as the money keeps rolling in. This came from the mouth of someone in the actual family. No training whatsoever. They pay their managers 12$ an hour so they act bitter towards the servers who make more, and generally speaking, know more than them.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to the people who face your customers daily. If they aren't happy, it projects to your customers. Really look at some of the people you have in charge. You are headed in the wrong direction.

    Pros

    At the properties I have worked the General Manager has been a true leader and has made the hotels a great place to work.

    Cons

    No benefits and very low pay.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to Upper management:: A competative advantage is aquired through it's human capital. You should really look in to how you treat the front line employee and consider making some stategic changes. No direct deposit? You sell medical benifits that are not beneficial at all. (a cash paying customer or welfare recepiant is better off). Your payroll system is working off of New Hampshire tax laws but we live and work in Forida which caused complications at tax time. It really appears that you do not care which makes many people wonder why should they? The one positive thing you have in your corner is one particular GM and others around the company which makes a tolerable place for some and a great place for others.

    Pros

    good personal ties and benefits, basically it's a LARGE company run by a very SMALL family so it's not a matter of how well you do, but who knows your name.

    Cons

    exactly what i just said, it's not a matter of how good you are, it's simply who knows you and that will make or break your entire career within the biased company.

    Advice to Management

    when mid-level and supervision positions arise, try hiring from inside of your own company with people that actually have previous experience working in the field, not just some clueless person that had an internship in a local burger joint for a semester.
