    Pros

    -Many local properties have autonomy over their operations.
    -Local management is empowered to make decisions on day-to-day operations.
    -Mid-size operator has opportunities to move laterally or promotion.
    -Variety of different levels of service in lodging (budget, mid-tier, and luxury)

    Cons

    -Only takes action to improve a property when it has reached a crisis.
    -Senior management doesn't seem knowledgable of property-level issues.
    -Technology for systems is outdated.
    -No reaction to poor employee survey results.
    -Benefit costs to employees slightly higher than comparable companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some serious action on property-level issues that come to your attention.
    Establish values that are properly communicated and adhered to.
    Only accept management contracts that are financially feasible--if an owner wants you to run a property with no expenses, no capital improvements, and yield a high profit--simply say 'no.'

    I worked at Interstate Hotels part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I worked in a restaurant at one of the Interstate Hotels in Louisville, KY. I made decent money there and it was well run. For me, it was a short term job that got me through a stretch, but I know a lot of people had worked at that hotel for years and were really happy there.

    Cons

    Like a lot of hotel restaurants, business could be unstable so income wasn't reliable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Coordinate marketing scheduling with area events better.
