I have been working at Davidson Hotels & Resorts full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Good experience. I was able to learn about in my position. Typically like to promote from within. Will give you advice if it is needed.

Cons

Long Hours with poor compensation. Management keeps certain people under their "wings". If you are not part of the crowd you will not succeed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Follow procedures to protect your employees.

    I worked at Davidson Hotels & Resorts full-time (less than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Re-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.

    High pressure, low rewards

    I worked at Davidson Hotels & Resorts full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -If you are willing to work under high pressure and for very long hours for many years, you may eventually land a cushy upper management job that pays very well, such as a general manager of a hotel
    -Almost free lunches
    -Reduced rates at other hotel properties
    -Chance to work with a multi-cultured workforce

    Cons

    -ridiculously long hours for lower management (average of 50-70, depending time of year), yet lower than industry average salaries
    -an atmosphere where blame is assigned before the cause is determined
    -high turnover among hourly employees
    -no fixed schedule
    -Atmosphere where profit is the most important factor
    -high competition among lower management to land promotions, which hurts morale and camaraderie

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Lower tiered employees should get paid more. This will result in less turnover and thus less expenditures on hiring and training people.
    -There often is a blame first, ask questions later attitude coming from mid-upper tiered hotel managers when there is a problem. This creates an environment of constant fear among employees and contributes to low morale.
