    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Distinctive Hospitality Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good managers at the hotel, good lower level emloyees

    Cons

    President has a bad attitude, promotes the wrong people, acts like a big company when they barely function as is. Neglects employees pay and benefits. Makes employees feel constantly replaceable and unimportant. No communication from upper management at all.

    Advice to Management

    Quit your day job, try something else, this is not a good fit for you.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Distinctive Hospitality Group full-time

    Pros

    Family environment with other staff members - bonding over a poorly managed company.

    Cons

    Company has lots of wants - does not give back to employees, no gratitude repaid. Benefits are terrible, seems like company cuts the cost of their employees to save a buck. Make sure you are taking care of the employees and properties you have before buying more and letting all the others fall to the wayside. Bad leadership at the regional level - power is with those how should not have it.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of upper management, spend money where it is needed. Stop cutting costs to save a penny.

    I have been working at Distinctive Hospitality Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    new company, plenty of growth opportunity, ok benefits, competitive wages

    Cons

    poorly managed, micromanaged in certain areas that don't need to be and macromanaged in areas that need attention, promises promises promises and all broken, growth opportunity is good because people keep leaving or getting fired, one manager/owner wants results with little care about money and the other manager/owner wants to save money, very very very few employee incentives, also I could have worked for this hotel for four years except that after the hostile take over two years ago, I'm a new employee starting over with everything (seniority, vacation time, everything)

    Advice to Management

    while the pay might be good, you can't work your staff into the ground and then one week out of the year say "hey, good job"
