    Pros

    Gorgeous properties, great benefits, fun people, good work.

    Cons

    Both the hotels I worked for (Sonoma Mission Inn and on the Orchid on Big Island) were embarrassingly nepotistic when it came to hiring of their highest level management. Definitely the mid-level managers and below were the ones really doing the work, higher than that and they were almost political figures, rather than people who worked there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't ignore the company mission to cross train employees. Try to not kill your mid-level managers and promote prima donnas to the top.
