I have been working at Joie de Vivre full-time for more than 3 years

ProsLocations
Primarily located in amazing Bay Area.
People
The employees who have been working since before the merger (few and fewer as time goes by) remember what company used to stand for

ConsLost its culture after merger
Should never have accepted Prtizker and Geolo Capital buy. Down hill from there.
Doesn't care about employees anymore.

Advice to Senior ManagementLeave Thompson Hotels. Bring back Chip!!!
Develop strategies to retain employees (pay, benefits)
Bring back Holiday Party.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
