I worked at Stonebridge Companies

Pros

They hire people with very little experience for substandard wages. This is a good way to get experience in the hospitality industry. They often hire people who are not qualified for their jobs and with little or no experience. Once you get in you will make a lot of mistakes and get none to very little support but you can really learn alot about the industry. It is very sink or swim and tons of overwork but you can really move up quickly as people leave the company for better paying jobs at other companies. This can allow you to get some great experience and move up the ladder more quickly.

Cons

They tend to use up people. People are constantly moving on to better paying jobs at other companies. This means that there are often voids in staff and they expect others to pitch in and get things done. It is a constant situation of understaffing. Since they don't offer standard rates of compensation positions go unfilled for long periods of time. There is not sense of urgency until the owner of the company or an investor needs information. Often the company does not pay for adequate systems or doesn't plan so after investing the minimum they have to "redo" or they run out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Things would go more smoothly if people were paid adequately and positions were staffed adequately.

    I have been working at Stonebridge Companies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The navigator program is the key to the entire operation; you get to pride yourself in your expert knowledge of Denver and get to know new places to recommend to your guests

    Cons

    Being a new hotel, overall organization is still being tweaked. The lack of management presence makes for a difficult workday at times. Some days, there are no managers and front desk agents are forced to take that role.

    I worked at Stonebridge Companies for more than a year

    Pros

    Worked for one of their hotels and the only thing that I can say as a positive would be their intention to remodel a tired looking property.

    Cons

    The place couldn't keep a GM for awhile, they couldn't get paychecks right and any discrepancies had to be handled in Colorado. They cut back on staffing which meant that we couldn't provide the kind of service that is expected from such a hotel chain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize when you cut back on staff/hours, your ratings WILL suffer on websites such as TripAdvisor. Your staff will ultimately be unhappy for having to do more jobs.
