    Pros

    I love my many jobs I do for a not so fair but fair if I was another employee in the building lol..

    Cons

    Too many cheifs and not enough Indians literally speaking...

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to move a go getter and a team player that will do the job that other employee or employees won't do. Because "Its not my job" doesn't fly with this employee that's writing this.. Come to your employees if you really want to know what the deal is with so called supervision from the supervisors when the big bosses are away.. But I love what I do don't get me wrong.. I hear its hard hard work at the top and I have proven I can ride til the wheels fall off..

    Pros

    Opportunity to grow in different sectors and multiple company options to find the right fit.

    Cons

    Work life balance like a majority of hospitality careers. Upper Management in some sectors can be a bit top heavy and counter-productive.

    Pros

    There are no pros with Chartwells at Texas A&M. This company is a disgrace and does a disservice to Texas A&M.

    Cons

    Terrible upper management; no communication; no work/life balance; hostile work environment

    Advice to Management

    Try to care about the employees and the customers at least as much as you care about the bottom line. Money isn't everything!

    Pros

    Unlike many planning jobs, this one allows your schedule to be during normal business hours 99% of the time with the very occasional late evening or weekend event that requires you to be on site (a handful of times per year in my experience).

    Cons

    While the title is "Event Planner" a more accurate description would be "Event Data Entry." Occasionally you will be asked your opinion on menu items or furniture sets, but for the most part you just enter your customer's requests into the event management tool. Compass Event Planners aren't very highly regarded among the rest of the industry, so staying here too long could hurt your chances at finding a new job in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Planners need to be recognized as individuals with different skills and talents so work-load can be distributed appropriately.

    Pros

    Good marketing programs if your at an account that is big enough to run them. Decent unit support if your unit is on the radar

    Cons

    not much flexibility to purchase whats best for the unit... always about what is best for the corporate incentives that the unit never sees. Huge amounts of corporate paperwork pulls unit managers away from customer service

    Advice to Management

    write realistic budgets
