    Pros

    The leaders are excellent at "talking the talk." They know how to excite a room and convince an audience of their promises. They can generate excitement.

    Cons

    They have a hard time delivering on their promises. They fail to back up their pitches with action. They manage their hotels from a place of fear. The proper supports do not exist, as the support team is young and inexperienced. The leader are all men (or close to men) and the support seem to be pretty young things; more of a dating pool. A "boys club" that bows down to the owners. There is a lot of talk about work life balance, but they work employees to death and then push them out.

    Advice to Management

    Look closely at your regional and vp team. They are all covering each others' messes up. The revenue management and sales teams are not generating the revenue they could. And your operations teams are kept preoccupied acting as secretaries for the vps. Everyone is more concerned with giving the right answers. The love of hospitality is lost. Listen to your own speeches.

    Pros

    There is a lot of room for advancement (positions, not so much with pay), the company is growing fast and you can get valuable industry experience here.

    Cons

    You will probably have to learn most things on your own, there is no structured training. The company is very unorganized from the top down. You will have to do the work of many, in most positions, since they don't budget for enough staff to properly run their business. Standards and wages are low (but demands are high) so many of the people you work with will be under-qualified. Most of the qualified employees are overworked and burned out since the company seems to have no real value on them.

    Advice to Management

    Provide formal training and increase budget for staffing so you can have enough staff to support your needs and pay enough to hire people who are qualified.
