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

ConsThere 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.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet real! Pay your people what their worth and respect how loyal and hard they work for you.
