Poor Communication, NO training and a pointing fingers game

Banquet Manager (Former Employee)

Pros-The company has a good deal of hotels in their portfolio
-The company has nice hotels in its portfolio

Cons-Received no training whatsoever. It was just how they did things. You either survive or you don't.
-A constant game of finger-pointing to place blame on everyone else so no-one had to take credit for the issues
-Poor communication
-Poor management. I was told upon hire by the Director of F& B that no-one in the hotel respected the General Manager. What a great way to start your first day of work!
-Overworked and highly underpaid
-Constant competition between maintaining "brand" standards, for example, "We fly the Hyatt flag, so we have to maintain Hyatt standards, but we also have to cut costs at every corner to maintain Davidson financial standards
-Gross neglect for maintaining company policies and procedures
-No such thing as a work/life balance

Advice to Senior ManagementRe-evaluate your mission statement and your principles and beliefs. Develop a training program for new-hires. Seriously evaluate upper management and how they treat and communicate with each other and staff.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

This will result in less turnover and thus less expenditures on hiring and training people. -There often is… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    Disappointing

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Davidson Hotels & Resorts


    Pros: The company is growing so there are opportunities to relocate. Cons: The growth of the company is somewhat uncontrolled. As a result, management training is limited at best. The company's intranet and SOPs have… Advice to Senior Management: Better management training for new hires. Re-evaluate management salaries. Do not break down the… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
