    Pros

    hotel discounts, some great benefits, some fine people

    Cons

    Hyper political atmosphere; finance vs commercial vs technology. Constant battles all the way from the executive staff down to the directors. Everyone trying to prove their value at the expense of the others. Also, if you aren't in a technical role, there are very few development opportunities outside of corporate in Rockville, MD.

    Advice to Management

    CEO vacated the COO position and is now exclusively outward facing. Some attention needs to be paid to the squabbling at the highest echelons of the company.

    I have been working at Choice Hotels part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Employee discount is pretty nice. It depends where you go and when to what discount you get. Sometimes, it's not worth using as some of the hotels offered are downright nasty. Get to meet different people from all walks of life Gain valuable experience in the hospitality industry

    Cons

    Low pay Have to deal with occasional rude and unhappy customers no matter what you do Because many if not all Choice Hotels are run independently, some areas offer better working environments than others. Unfortunately, mine isn't great.

    Advice to Management

    I wish that pay could be more than minimum wage, stop cutting costs everywhere that make the hotels look shabby, better communication with employees.
