    The company cares about my career and is helping me to get promoted to a higher paying position.

    So many people stay working here that you have to wait to get promoted.

    Pros

    The Leadership is genuine in its message to the employees. There is much respect in the workplace. Employees are being given the tools to succeed and there are opportunities for advancement/growth/promotion.
    The message/Culture is deep/genuine thus strong!

    Cons

    Is to be at the same level as a person/employee as the level of beauty of the Resort/location, to continue to strive as to have the best ethics.

    Advice to Management

    To never stop believing in the Product (Physical Aspect of the Resort and Quality of the Associates). To never take for granted what we all share together.

    Pros

    This resort is a world-class property featuring world-class leaders that challenge your professional development. Senior Management is always forward thinking and often times seeks your entrepreneurial input. Lots of opportunities if you are willing to take chances and explore other sides of the hotel and parent company of DH&R. Great perks- discounted hotel rates, 401K matching, healthcare etc. Work/Life balance, compared to the hospitality industry, is above fair.

    Cons

    If you don't have a strong business sense or entrepreneurial spirit you will feel like you are all alone. This place has lots of moving parts so it's sometimes hard to get the one on one time with leaders for development.

    Advice to Management

    Remember where you started from and remember your early professional experiences. There are many "new" and "potential" management here that seek guidance and want to learn- make time for them so they can be a world-class leader one day.

    Pros

    Your co-workers can be amazing and helpful. You build great relationships. During the peak seasons, if your in a position that makes tips, you can make a lot of money. There is always work for those who are willing to pick up shifts because they are always understaffed. I worked there twice because I loved the money and my co-workers, but the stress was too much.

    Cons

    Upper management has no idea what going on on the floor. They really don't care about the employees. Floor supervisors come in through revolving doors and don't last long because expectations are so high. A lot have little experience and have no clue what they are doing. It's basically who ever wants the job. They aren't given any room for input and usually wear down. Some departments allow overtime so you can make money but your going to be working double shift after double shift. If you want to transfer out of a department they will make it tough and punish you for it. Even if you work 40+ hours, if you don't get hired in as full time, you will not get benefits. You will have to push and push for this. If you are full time and change positions, they will take your benefits away. If you ask for a day off, you will either get scheduled no days at all for the week or get scheduled that day plus morning and night to discourage you from asking.

    Advice to Management

    HIre qualified people and put them in the right positions. Take the time to listen to your employees. Stop taking advantage of your hard working employees. Quality employees=Quality service.
