    I worked at Gaylord Entertainment part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The money was great most of the time. Employees received a discount on rooms and were able to get in free at the Glass Cactus. You were surrounded by an eclectic mix of individuals from all over the world. The food was impeccable.

    Cons

    When you deal with such a large company, there is bound to be head-butting and gossip. The waiters and support staff did not respect upper management and upper management did not always conduct themselves appropriately. During certain times of the year a less than desired consumer base would descend upon the hotel (red hat society, ICE tourists).


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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Management 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.
