No opinion of CEO

I worked at Davidson Hotels & Resorts full-time (More than a year)

Pros

They franchise some of the larger brands and you will have access to some of those company's benefits. They do have policies and procedures in place unlike some smaller companies.

Cons

They try to do a lot with very little. Small budgets, big dreams. They expect managers to be their own assistants and do it all (literally doing your own file keeping and any other admin work). You will work like a dog and if you don't fit in with their cliquish society you will never move on up.

Advice to Management

Be a little more open minded that some communities work differently than the way you are used to running it from home base.

    I have been working at Davidson Hotels & Resorts full-time

    Pros

    They are available to talk to you. They give you a change to move up. They seem to listen to your concerns, but it comes with a price. They seem to want to work with someone to make them better.

    Cons

    Forms, forms, and more forms there is a form to fill out a form. Impossible budgets to make. The price to the above, you can be black balled if you point out a concern.

    Advice to Management

    Get back out into the field and see what is really going on.

    I worked at Davidson Hotels & Resorts (More than a year)

    Pros

    I can only think of maybe one, the location of the hotel I worked for

    Cons

    Where to start, upper management is clueless and the environment was horrible to work in. If you wanted to get ahead in there hotel you had to kiss up to the general manager, they constantly lie to staff about whats really going on and there are prejudices at the property. I am referred to the Chicago mag mile property. Directors are yes men and unless you were there favorite there was no room for advancement. Horrible place to work.

    Advice to Management

    They need to fires all of you and start over
