Postitive work environment, but limited opportunities to develop a cross industry skillset.

Executive Meetings Manager (Former Employee)
Grapevine, TX

I worked at Gaylord Entertainment

ProsFree company cafeteria, free dry cleaning for salaried employees, benefits package is fair. Great work culture, very people centric.

ConsManagement tends to hire as if in triage, due to the pro employee culture sub par employees tend to be kept on. There is also a tinge of nepotism. Company is triangular in power structure so don't expect much cross-training or professional skill development outside of hospitality specific functions.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
