    I worked at Drury Hotels full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Organized and structured. They have flawless procedures for just about any occurrence. Corporate really does care about the employees and they pay better than any of my other hotel experiences. It was my first hotel job and was the position that sparked my love for hospitality. However, because Drury was such a great experience...when I moved out of state, all of my hotel positions since then have not lived up to the Drury expectation.
    The general manager at my property was outstanding and had been with the company since she was 18. All of my coworkers were like family.
    Of course every job has its bad shifts and crazy moments, all around, Drury Hotels is a fantastic company to work for.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing! I still remember the day Chuck Drury and Eric Strand came to my property and it made us all feel appreciated. Thank you for being a different hotel brand than any other in the world. Keep setting the standard!

    I have been working at Drury Hotels full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People seem to have developed long term stability.

    Cons

    People have built there own higly foritfied Silos of expertise. When asking for help answers like "Isnt it obvious" or "Google it" or they get upset and start talking behind your back. Leadership is new and obviously not knowlegable on runing a budding enterprise. Company dies not seem diverse and is becoming ripe with agism and sterotypes. There is also no diversity in technology and other groups.

    Advice to Management

    Your focus should be cross training eveyone and forcing employees to provide technical details about apllications. Things are so overdeveloped and convulated. Stop talking bad about others as we can hear everything.
