    Pros

    Open door policies
    Company is continuously growing and has infinite growth potential, creating what would seem to be a lot of opportunity for those looking for a career.

    Cons

    Being at one of the properties outside of California you don't feel as though you have a lot of people to turn to as an example of company culture. Management seems to be young and inexperienced. Being outside of Cali. leaves you with little option for using your company perks. It is always said that this company is looking to promote from within but for the year and a half that I was there I never witnessed anyone actually be promoted, though various positions opened up. It was also my experience that there was absolutely no follow through on disciplinary actions. The hotel became known as the job no one could get fired from which might be a pro to some. Last but not least, running out of essential items such as, toilet paper, amenities, etc. for the guest, is completely unacceptable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to upper management would be to stop the madness. Yes you should be able to have fun at work, but there is a time and a place for that and there has to be a standared set. Stop treading on those that are asking for rules and regulations, aka. structure. You will eventually lose those in the staff that work hard, because nobody wants to work at 100% when the person next to them is getting paid the same amount and only doing 15% of the job. Also teach your managers in the workplace about proper fratinization and keeping boundaries amongst themselves and their employees. Keep the open door policie alive but actually do something with the legitimate concerns employees bring in to you.
