    I have been working at LA Quinta full-time

    Pros

    A helpful, optimistic, we're here for you corporate culture that permeates the corporate office
    Overall, remarkably kind, generous and sweet people that care for the guests and for each other
    Nice office with covered parking with great views
    Highly talented people working with very tight capital constraints

    Cons

    Blackstone still has its hooks in LQ and due to the massive debt they've saddled the company with....corporate office is understaffed and long hours happen
    Corporate culture can be a bit silly/doofy - a little lowest common denominator
    Company lacks scale - easily acquired by a larger competitor

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enhance management training and coaching for staff at VP and above
    Implement 360 reviews above manager level
    Hire more staff

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO
