Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

It was a paycheck; You are better off lying low and doing nothing to survive.

Cons

Company profit totally focused on selling franchises; franchisees pay fees and receive little benefit. Marketing and Product management is a nonstrategic joke. Most talented associates have quit. One of htose companies that talk about their "values" while everyone from the top down tries to out maneuver one another

Advice to Management

Stop the hypocrisy.

    I have been working at Choice Hotels full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great beneftis. Health benefits not as good as used to be, now on a high deductible plan but still good comparitively. Locally work with great people.

    Cons

    Very top heavy, too many senior level managers. Every year, they cut more employees to outsoarcing and then talk about how great the company is doing in the earnings reports. Just focused on more $$. Often won't spend $$ on systems upgrades or necessities of everyday job function.

    I have been working at Choice Hotels full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Small company where associates at all levels can make a significant contribution and have access to senior staff

    Cons

    Very cost conscious resulting in limited resources for employees and lots of work

    Advice to Management

    Add staff when necessary to take advantage of projects with a positive NPV rather than delaying or denying projects due to a lack of resources
