    I worked at Columbia Hospitality full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The managers work with you and listen to any complaints. Benefits are good and payroll is always on time. PTO is awesome and more companies should offer it.

    Cons

    Everyone is very busy and usually working 2-3 positions. Managers listen but follow through is null.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what you say you will do to help employees.

    Pros

    Managers are awesome. Team camaraderie was the absolute best part of the job!

    Cons

    The client-base is much different than any other hotel. A lot of medical guests, and they're not very happy for their stay, considering, you know, their situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Housekeeping needs a lot of work. Other then that, they're great!

    Disorganized, bad communication, nepotism, and lack of quality leadership.

    I have been working at Columbia Hospitality full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are some great and incredibly hard working people at this company. Get discounts at properties.

    Cons

    Unfortunately those great people are all hourly. Senior leadership and upper management tend to treat hourly employee's like disposable assets. And the only way to really move up in this company is to have a friends in management. Promotions are based more on who likes you and not on job performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more stock in quality and substance.

    I worked at Columbia Hospitality full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Many great people, professionally run organization and a chance to experience food service on a grand scale. Very little micro-managing, my kitchen team was empowered to problem solve and self-organize. Rarely boring.

    Cons

    General to the food service industry: not a lot of upward mobility. The mass of jobs are at or near the bottom and you can get more skilled and experience without really moving up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open about numbers, finance, and mid to long term road maps and plans.

    Pros

    Many leaders really try to live the company values. Discounted rates at the properties. A lot of great people work here. Free lunch.

    Cons

    Very little recognition which can be demotivating. Some people/positions really stuggle trying to maintain work/life balance as more and more work is piled on them. Low wages. Senior leaders play favorites which is great if you are one of the favorites.
