    I worked at Lodgian full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company was true to employees and leadership. Allowed a good range of freedom and had a sound structure. Great focus on HR, Revenue management, and operations.

    Cons

    Company was doomed from onset due to fiscal instability. It was one of the rare publicly traded owner/operator hotel companies, but didn't always capitalize on it's strengths.

    Advice to Management

    It's all over now.

    I worked at Lodgian part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working for Lodgian/Holiday Inn I met a lot of hard working, nice people. It was my first job I was able to land after moving to the Baltimore area. The managers were not micro managers, and sort of let you do your own thing which is good

    Cons

    The management team was always being replaced by new managers. The hours were poor at times. The pay was low. I felt that the hotel was being ran on a small budget. We begged for a nice room service cart, and after months of begging we finally got one, and it was CHEAP! The new management that was brought in was not nice to current employees. It seemed like they wanted to bring in their own people at the time.

    Advice to Management

    Check in at your hotels more often. Ask the actual employees what needs to be changed. It seemed at the time like you prefer to shun the regular employees, and only talk with hotel management. You don't get any real feedback this way.

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Non-management co-workers are great to be with. Good for part-time.

    Cons

    -So-so pay. -Lack of training. -Incompetent management. -Housekeepers cannot communicate well enough, causing everyone problems (especially the guests). -Uniforms are hot, itchy, and unprofessional. It doesn't matter what size you are, you will look like a clown. -Constant berating and non-constructive criticism from managers, especially HR. You will hardly receive positive feedback, despite your effort and personality. -Having to clock in and out; HR highly persnickety. You are always watched. -30 minuted lunch...

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the terrible, polyester uniforms. Let Front Desk wear own profession clothing. More hands-on training instead of from a computer.

    Pros

    They provide food and accommodation for foreign employees, the properties are located in exotic locations like the Rocky mountains, which act as mood enhancer for employees. They bring on board employees from many different countries, and thus facilitate cross-cultural bonding.

    Cons

    Bad management feedback, no training, no growth opportunity. Management give no training and reprimand the employees. There are no perks to boost motivation and employee performance.

    Advice to Management

    Please conduct management training programs and train your employees before reprimanding them. Have a counseling session with your team before giving them notice. Find out who enjoys what the best and do proper competency mapping.

    Pros

    Marriott is an awesome company to work for. They treat their employees with respect and fairness. Well established management training programs allow for career advancement for those individuals interested in excelling within the organization.

    Cons

    As with any company in the hospitality industry the hours are long and working holidays and weekends as well as night shift vs day shift changes make it difficult for family time.

    Advice to Management

    One of the things that took place every year when I worked at the Courtyard was executive management would go out into the field and work in one of the hotels for 1 week covering several of the positions within the hotel i.e. housekeeper, dishwasher, front desk clerk etc. It was awesome for employee moral and kept the executives in touch with life on the front lines.


  11. good job for the short run, but don't plan to build a career

    Pros

    good opportunity for growth and flexibility with hours through college. able to make adequate wages through hours and tips earned

    Cons

    little reward for tenure in terms of compensation and advancement. don't expect to be rewarded for the time you put in or the education you've gotten besides another week of vacation.

    Advice to Management

    it takes more than another week of vacation to retain an employee that has invested themselves in your company. try offering competitve wages to your supervisors/middle management.
