Good place to work, not a lot of room to progress career

Pros

Benefits package good. Very close-knit "family" feeling. Managers (some) seem to genuinely care about their employees. With all things considered and a hotel being a 24/7/365 operating facility, there is a good balance of work/life. PTO system for time off offers a lot of flexibility with vacation times, especially during slow season.

Cons

Benefits package has taken a hit over the past couple years, no more 401k match, dry cleaning privileges taken away, pay freezes. Upper management can be very disconnected with mid-level managers and base line employees. It's an independent hotel so sometimes policies are changed at the convenience of the operation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Connect more with your employees, they are the strength of the success of the hotel. Sporadic surveys aren't enough to get a true vibe on the morale of the staff.

    Pros

    Great benefits and the mangers genuinely care about their employees.

    Cons

    You have to act like you're second class by only being allowed to enter through the back of the hotel and you can't eat at the bull durham bar. Also, you are lucky if you get to move up in this company.
