    I worked at Destination Hotels full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Enjoyed coming aboard just before company growth. Felt an integral part of my property's direction and growth. Loved culture...first company to actuate culture and not just talk about it.

    Cons

    Wish company wide growth after merger was taking place in mid Atlantic area (wdc) sad to see so many good people leave with no relocatable hotels in the same market. Sorry to see the urban growth promise for wdc disappear.

    Advice to Management

    More hotels in DC metro area. Keep the base company culture alive, it's the one thing that sets you apart.

    I worked at Destination Hotels full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Your co-workers
    -Never saw an issue for career growth (if you wanted to stay within the industry)
    -If you know how to brown nose then the San Diego location is for you

    Cons

    -Some managers prance around work on their high horse
    -When you see an issue and report it or offer advice (trying to make the work environment a better place and not asking the company to spend money) no one will listen to you
    -They will listen to the brown nosers
    -Was told I need to "get some thick skin quick" during my exit interview
    -Lack of respect
    -Star program like were in the 1st grade again
    -Awards go to those who don't deserve it (an employee was drinking during ODAP and gets awards, when people were working hard behind the scenes do not get recognized. another one 'created' a product, but you can easily find that product trademarked on the actual creators website as a part of their portfolio)
    -If you do get recognized you get a Star (big whoop)
    -Food quality went down while prices went up (making employees who have been there a while lose pride in what they are doing. Frozen bagels?!?! Really?)
    -Overall quality went downhill throughout my employment
    -Because food quality went down a lot of customers left. It leaves servers looking forward to any extra banquet shifts. It feels as if the company wants less people and charge them more instead of having a constant income/revenue.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Actually listen. You have bright young people working for you. We are not whining. We are actually passionate employees, and want the place to do better. If you want employees to treat guest with a 5 star attitude you need to start paying them for 5 star service. Its disheartening seeing small service charges added to guest checks while not seeing a little bump in pay ourselves. I understand its a business, but when food costs are low and food prices high there is definitely room for a little more pay. I was told to get thick skin because I confronted management about possible sexual harassment/advances leading to favoritism and better scheduling. The person was fired, but I don't think they were fired for those reasons as they were still allowed back on property and would often be found at the bar in the evening as their new job was across the street.

    Pros

    Excellent place if you like living a lie and being treated poorly while getting paid nothing. I have such fond memories of watching fellow employees happily being subjected to MVL propaganda. You must glorify the supreme leader at all times. Expect to be interrogated if the regime thinks you're disloyal.

    Cons

    Drunk drivers...
    Bizarre place to work

    Advice to Management

    Put up a barb wire fence and man your guard towers to prevent more employees from escaping.
