    I worked at Benchmark Hospitality part-time

    Pros

    Diverse work environment in the sense that there are many departments handling all the various requirements of hotel/conference center complex.

    Cons

    Lots of turnover in the larger departments. Frustrating mis-communication between departments. Complex is owned by State, however management is run by an outside company, leading to some employees being state employed therefore limited to 1500 hours/yearSome, if not most management are employed by the management company and are given benefits, but sometimes not paid for overtime that may be required.
    Very difficult to move into these positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up more full time and benefit positions and opportunities.

    I worked at Benchmark Hospitality full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benchmark is a well-managed, generous, principled company. Corporate leadership is fabulous but very out of touch with what goes on with the rank and file management.

    Cons

    Duplicitous, unfair, unethical, illegal and discriminatory behavior by senior managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate executives need to do a better job of being in touch with the rank and file middle managers who are abused and bullied by senior managers.

    Pros

    Potential to make good money

    Cons

    Management expects insanely long hours, without these long hours pay is awful, you're never given the tools you need to complete the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Crack down on properties that aren't making money/are mismanaged.

    Pros

    The weekly scheduling and support from my direct report really helps me want to work extra hard to support their initiatives. They are flexible and understanding of me, as a person, and thankfully helpful in ways of living my life through tough times.

    Cons

    I have no cons to speak of at this time. They have been nothing less than supportive to me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to your team members, give them the support they need to execute the jobs effectively. We are a support team, giving us the tools and support to do the job right, allows us to do the job right and with confidence. Never stop learning from the front line teams. We are the ones closest to the clients.
