    I have been working at Davidson Hotels & Resorts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are so many great things about working for Davidson.... the people, the work/life balance, the partners, customers, summer flex hours and the gorgeous view from our office. The office atmosphere is relaxed and everyone genuinely likes each other. I have never experienced any "office politics" or animosity during my time here. Another big Pro is the longevity of Davidson's employees and executives. Most people have been here many years and that speaks volumes for a company.

    Cons

    It is truly difficult to find a "con"... the only one that comes to mind is my long commute. It typically takes 1-2 hours to drive 20 miles.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! Your support and encouragement does not go unnoticed. It's rare to find a company that truly puts its employees first. Oh, and Flex Fridays during the holidays (from Thanksgiving to New Year's Eve) would be a nice option too.

    The company takes really good care of their people, and the benefits are awesome including 401k match and hotel room discounts. Lots of opportunity for growth and development since they manage hotels across the U.S.

    A little paper heavy but the company is definately making strides to offer recent technologies that will streamline many of these processes.

    I have been working at Davidson Hotels & Resorts full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Forward thinking, concerned about taking care of the Guest, the Team Members and the Owners. Leader in their markets. Pin-point focus on full service hotel and F&B focus. It a family of hotel people... all the way up to the corporate level.

    Cons

    The Owners could sale a property and the new Owners may not choice Davidson. Sometimes the new owners do choose Davidson but sometimes we have to say good bye to a good property and the team members that work there and cannot relocate.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
