Pros

The people are, or were, great. Being associated with a widely recognized brand and one of the biggest boutique hotel companies in the country.

Cons

There have been so many changes at Joie de Vivre over the years, but the most drastic occurred recently when Thompson Hotels took over operations. Ouch! Joie de Vivre's once unique culture, warm and friendly people, fun environment, and focus on retaining top talent has left the building, along with visionary founder and former CEO, Chip Conley.

Get real! Pay your people what their worth and respect how loyal and hard they work for you.

    Pros

    it is an overall fun place to work. there are a lot of different types of hotels so it is easy to find one that you like.

    Cons

    benefits and salary are not on the same level as other local hotels that they would like to compete with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    dont take advantage of the local job market and economy on current employees. new employees are easy to find but its also important to retain loyal employees.

    Pros

    Tips, great employees, free lunch, decent salary.

    Cons

    You work a lot harder than what you are paid. To get anything done there to make sure the guest are happy, you would have to go through all this politics and have to see if it can be put into the budget, even the smallest things.
