I worked at Aqua Hotels and Resorts full-time (More than 5 years)
Excellent middle managers (most, not all) to work with, Decent benefits package, not many more pros that I can think of. There would be much more in this section had I wrote this two years ago, but those pros are no longer.
First, it's major con is that it has been bought out by it's competition, who wasn't experiencing similar growth, so Aqua then became a major threat. Through questionable business practices, the competition bought Aqua, and that was the saddest day in company history. Now Aqua still exists by name only... it's passion, drive, can-do attitude, ability to tackle challenges, etc are all gone now. Suppressed by Corporate America. It's heartbreaking.
Advice to Management
Cut from the top. The biggest problem is that the same leaders who struggled unsuccessfully in the corporate company continue to lead the combined company, and they are dragging Aqua down. They refuse to change enough to make a real difference, and they foolishly hold steadfast to rediculous red tape, instead of trying to make things easier for all.
