    Pros

    Good benefits, great employee services, relaxed but professional work environment. Employees are committed to doing a good job. The culture is all about doing the right thing for the guest. Great place to work.

    Cons

    Staffing is currently very lean. Hard to find answers or assistance. People are working hard/long trying to keep things afloat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tribal knowledge is priceless, be careful not to let too much of it walk out the door. Work on morale, reassure your employees that they are important and valued.

    Pros

    Great insight into the company, with managers who are willing to answer all questions. Also has a very strong company culture.

    Only part time positions are available for internships. But other than that, no bad feedback other than it's a pretty competitive position.

    Pros

    Very people oriented environment that emphasizes work-life balance. The old culture is starting to get with the times, slowly. Big emphasis on personal growth and development.

    Cons

    Things move slowly, and benefits are lacking, if you're not motivated by your role it's easy to look elsewhere or be poached by the competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the culture change going, embrace the millennial workforce, and fix technology and process issues.
