    Pros

    Flat organizational structure which gives a lot of access and exposure to VPs. Collaborative work environment which allows exposure into different areas.

    Cons

    Relying on other groups for information or deliverables from other groups. Seems like any company would have these types of challenges.

    I worked at Choice Hotels full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I worked for this Company and it was such a good time, the people that I worked with were super exciting and made working like you didn't want to go home. The bosses and the owner care about the employees and know how to treat them with the respect that they deserve. as l0ng as your job is getting done.

    Cons

    Not too much on the cons, there was one that I would liked to have seen, and that would be able to have lunch in the restaurant with a specialized menu.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and keep pleasing those people and employees

    Pros

    Work life balance. Nice facilities. Family type environment.

    Cons

    Below average compensation. No bonus except for managers and directors. Too many contractors. No clear vision. Constance reorgs. t CIO is not very competent. Not many growth opportunities. Cliques exist in the IT Phoenix office and only the one with connections can go up the ladder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a vision. Make Choice what it used to be "a place people retired from"

    Great company to work for at any level!

    Pros

    That atmosphere is very inclusive and you have constant room for growth - both personally and professionally. You have the ability to make your footprint and your successes and failures are the companies. There is a lot of motivation to work hard and reap the rewards.

    Cons

    There are so many departments and facets to the company that you will never know everyone and what each department does - but it's still encouraged to try!
