I worked at Choice Hotels full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

You will handle more than one position, so you will learn quickly how to juggle and prioritize
When you start, your pay will be lower than competitive but decent enough for some
The office is new and clean, and given how many people keep leaving, there is plenty of room and parking

Cons

Once you master more than one position, you will be expected to stay at that pace and receive even more responsibilities. At this point, you may kiss your work-life balance goodbye and your salary will be far less than your worth. Intense amount of managerial greed currently growing. Cold environment full of miserable, used-up employees and ignorant temps/contractors/interns.

Advice to Management

Management is on a tear to ruin the company with failing outsourcing, replacing full time workers with contractors with limited knowledge and allowing high levels of attrition, which is completely unnecessary. They are thinking short-term only for their own gain. Advice for Board Members is to look at what it takes to maintain growth long term and seek the truth from management about current strategies. 8 people can't produce code for this website for as many projects as they expect to be achieved for long. It's good to be lean; it's not good to be emaciated.
