    I worked at B.F. Saul Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I thought it had a good structure and good values.

    Cons

    Mostly a man's company. It's harder to promotions as a woman.
    Not the friendliest company to work with when management yells at their employees in the upper levels

    I have been working at B.F. Saul Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    401k match is the ONLY reason most endure this outdated, company.
    Also, it's a nice place to hide if you aren't talented, corporate runs itself on autopilot.

    Cons

    Lies are told prior to hiring and the reality is quite a different experience. Lack of respect by corporate team to field with unrealistic sales expectations, while they sit back and travel, shop, overdose on botox and call out weekly. Often times they brag on their personal assets to us in the field, very poor taste. Small bonuses are paid-eventually. HR needs good leadership that care or can fake it better. District leadership bring zero to the table. It's basically a gang of bullies with no true leadership qualities. However, if the right people like you, then you're golden- regardless of talent.

    Advice to Management

    Hold yourself to the same standards as you do the hotel leaders. Give paid holidays to the field, like you give to yourself. Lower insurance premiums to the field so we can pay what you pay. Stop jerking us around with sales bonus lies!
    Haven't you noticed that your sales team hates it here? Wake up!

    Fire yourselves and allow good/fresh change to happen.

    Pros

    All managers were trained equally. A lot of learning.

    Long hours. Not set schedules.

    Treat employees professionally speaking. We are not family at our workplace. We are there to do our job the best as we can and learn as much as we can. We are not in our home.

    Pros

    It is a really good company to work for because they do care about their employees. They always have a CPD (Center for Professional Development) with many different types of speakers. The things you hear about and or learn you are able to apply them to your job and/or personal life. They have a wellness fair every year with many different great companies that participate. We hold a gift raffle drive every year around the holidays and raise money for the 'Boys and Girls Club of Greater Washington' from baskets donated by many businesses and employees.

    Cons

    I haven't really experienced any down sides to working for B.F. Saul Company besides every once in a while running into a particular employee that you just don't care for or get along with.

    Pros

    good benefits, medical by kaiser pernanente, good dental and vision plans

    Cons

    mgmt is one big dog and pony show, area directors are micromanaging and don't seem to care much about lower tier employees, when the corporate bosses show up, managers appear to magically become nice and grateful for their employees. notice the kneepads and lipstick.

    Advice to Management

    don't forget the people that support the pedestals you prance on. they can let you fall on your face anytime.
