I have been working at Davidson Hotels & Resorts full-time

Pros

There is a lot of opportunity to learn in this company. There is room for advancement and they promote from within. There is structure that include strict policies and procedures. It's still a small company even though it is a larger company, so you get to know corporate and build a relationship with them.

Cons

The technology is an issue, the networks and computers are slow and there are a lot of forms used to track systems, both pro and con.

Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Davidson Hotels & Resorts full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The benefits program was great, good health, dental and vision insurance and higher than average PTO accumulation.

    Cons

    Incompetent managers who would much rather take credit for an employees work than do the work themselves.

    An environment that allows malicious gossip and harassment between employees with no reprecussions.

    Upper management and corporate seems to be out of touch with the hourly associates.

    Management does not listen to the hourly associates and there has been no visible changes to the hotel.

    Profit driven instead of services driven. Over the winter when the hotel was slow, housekeeping had their hours cut to the bare bone putting a lot of full time status employees at risk. Now that peak season is running the housekeepers are struggling under the burden of the tasks that could have been done over the winter and the actual work necessary for current guests.

    The middle and lower management at this company discouraged cross training among the different departments.

    This particular set of managers brought in outside candidates to fill positions when there were qualified internal candidates available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers that are actually competent. Listen to the hourly associates they are the ones on the front lines. Give the hourly employees proper tools to do their jobs. If you give people the training and allow them to grow then perhaps you will get a better quality of employee. Sweeping internal problems under the rug instead of actually addressing them or even allowing the lower and middle management to do that kills morale. Working at this hotel was a nightmare.

    I worked at Davidson Hotels & Resorts

    Pros

    I very much enjoyed the people I worked with (as people...not necessarily as co-workers you have to rely on)

    Cons

    Corporate doesn't seem to care about their property employees. They expect a lot but give little tools and resources to accomplish these things. People are not held responsible what so ever but then they let the good ones go instead of trying to keep them within the company. I met a lot of great people here but wasn't upset to leave the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your property employees. The same thing can be said year after year on TMOS surveys and nothing is done about it...barely even acknowledged.
