    Banquet Server (Current Employee)

    ProsI just started working here and every single team member has made me feel so welcomed! It's great to work for a company that appreciates it's employees. I love how the managers will point out when you are doing a good job and they recognize hard work. Also if you are not quite sure on how to do something the managers will teach you .

    ConsI HAVE NO CONS.
    This is the best place to work for I love what I do!

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what your doing! It feels great to work for someone who appreciates what you do! This job has given me a change of heart and I now wish to go back to school for buisness/ hospitality

    Davidson Hotels & Resorts is a great company to work for and to work with.

    Steering Team Member (Current Employee)
    Birmingham, AL

    ProsForward thinking, concerned about taking care of the Guest, the Team Members and the Owners. Leader in their markets. Pin-point focus on full service hotel and F&B focus. It a family of hotel people... all the way up to the corporate level.

    ConsThe Owners could sale a property and the new Owners may not choice Davidson. Sometimes the new owners do choose Davidson but sometimes we have to say good bye to a good property and the team members that work there and cannot relocate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work.

    Great place to work!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe company takes really good care of their people, and the benefits are awesome including 401k match and hotel room discounts. Lots of opportunity for growth and development since they manage hotels across the U.S.

    ConsA little paper heavy but the company is definately making strides to offer recent technologies that will streamline many of these processes.

    Great company! Growth, opportunity & family balance were important to me and this company provided it.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsStrong internal controls. Competent senior management. Good diversity in line level staff.

    ConsA little outdated in operational policy review. Needs more diversity in upper level management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRely on younger talent to help keep the company young and up to date. Innovation and efficiency is growth.

    The best job I've ever had!

    Project Coordinator (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsThere are so many great things about working for Davidson.... the people, the work/life balance, the partners, customers, summer flex hours and the gorgeous view from our office. The office atmosphere is relaxed and everyone genuinely likes each other. I have never experienced any "office politics" or animosity during my time here. Another big Pro is the longevity of Davidson's employees and executives. Most people have been here many years and that speaks volumes for a company.

    ConsIt is truly difficult to find a "con"... the only one that comes to mind is my long commute. It typically takes 1-2 hours to drive 20 miles.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work! Your support and encouragement does not go unnoticed. It's rare to find a company that truly puts its employees first. Oh, and Flex Fridays during the holidays (from Thanksgiving to New Year's Eve) would be a nice option too.
