I worked at LodgeNet

Pros

Many very nice individuals to work with but archaic process and proceedures throughout.Their stock took a nose dive and they nearly hit bottom so they did layoffs and flattened their structure eliminating many managers. I am sure this left a mountain of work for those they kept. It seems like sometimes there are 10 departments doing the same thing at this company and that they don't communicate well with each other. Overall there is potential and their CEO is a warm personality but there is a sense that they need to grow and challenge themselves more. Innovation is not as great here as you'd expect. It seems like people just want to collect their checks and get about the weekend activities. I'll cross my fingers and hope I'm wrong because these are some very lovable people at this company but I think LodgeNet has a short future due to financial issues and lack of innovation and market penetration.

Cons

Constantly seeing other products and services offered elsewhere that are cheaper and better than your own. Dodging the questions from relatives about the content that LodgeNet makes its money from.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Adapt or perish, as they say. I hope LodgeNet learns to adapt quickly, and soon. Stop viewing expensive re-branding as the key to your problems and focus on some actual innovation.
