Pros – My co workers are family to me. We all work together and we all have each others best interest. They are what keeps me coming to work everyday.
Cons – They do not look out for the benefit of their employees. HR is not trustworthy. HR is more afraid of getting themselves in trouble than actually taking care of their employees. The pay is not up to standard with what other companies are paying. Also, raises less than 25 cents are a SLAP IN THE FACE.
Advice to Senior Management – Take care of your employees and they will take care of your guests and you! It is a common trend between all of the hotels under DOW that they are going downhill for the same reasons.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – It's a job and some people don't have jobs.
Cons – Dow Hotel Company is small and historic. They force decisions on properties from a "bird's eye" view and blame the hotels when they fail.
Advice to Senior Management – Stop yelling. Stop being insecure. Talk and listen to your associates and managers at the properties. Step into the current century and embrace it! Stop managing and start leading!!!
Pros – Friendly staff, franchise for Hilton so that presents lots of opportunities, Will promote from within.
Cons – Awful pay, there are managers here who have second jobs just to make ends meet. Overly aggressive labor budget goals cause frequent understaffing and sub par service to guests.
Advice to Senior Management – Re-examine if you really want the property you have here in georgia to be competitive/successful, or do you just want to keep squeezing what profits you have out of it so you can continue to upgrade the properties in Chicago and Seattle.
Pros – Typical hotel sales job where the focus is just as strong on the solication goals as your revenue goals. No room for growth either within the company unless you want to move to another departments of the hotel.
Cons – I have seen a few properties now of Dow and you can tell a common theme with them all - they are all outdated and run down. I understand the need to save profit to buy more properties, but there needs to be a line somewhere to invest some of it back into your own properties.
