Pros

Growing company with the merger of Commune hotels. Opportunity for growth is expanding rapidly.

Cons

Corporate office is going through so many changes which trickles down lack of communication to the hotels. We are not getting answers on a lot of the direction the company is heading, bonus plans changing consistently with lack of communication to external sales departments at the hotels.

    Pros

    I would say the best part about working for JDV were the people that work there. The hotel I was working at got purchased by JDV and they came in and made a lot of changes. All in all the changes they made to the hotel were okay. They made some renovations to the F&B outlets of the hotel and brought in a new chef ect.

    Cons

    While I was working at JDV there was a lot of change going on in upper management which led to an atmosphere of uncertainty amongst employees. With all of the renovations I would have expected to see in increase in business but that was not the case. I feel like JDV could have done a better job marketing and advertising to bring in business.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to move up.
    Great front office leadership across properties.
    Training available to develop a career

    Cons

    Lack of Vision. Used to be a fun environment but has lost its glamour when founder stepped aside. HR department that is only interested in advancement not the employees needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because a company grows doesn't mean it should become corporate. Make sure your employees are taken care of
