    I worked at Choice Hotels

    Pros

    They have a large amount of hotels meaning you will be supporting a large segment of hotel owners and management companies.

    Cons

    Since Choice Hotels does not manage a single hotel, corporate earnings and number of franchises are the priority. Yes, hotel specific metrics such as ADR, OCC, RevPAR help move the needle, the management focus from senior leadership focus more on ensuring a EPS that enables stockholder growth and Senior Leadership bonus payouts.
