No opinion of CEO

Pros

People are friendly, generally great team spirit. Some members of the Executive team are inspiring. Others are irratic. Good community outreach/involvement

Cons

Micromanagement of competent employees while they look the other way with lousy employees. Massive abuse of time off and calling out sick (well beyond amount of time that is offered in benefits package) with no consequences. Then the work falls on the shoulders of people who actually show up on time, when they are scheduled. Worked at the new hotel and then the Mark and it's much nicer work environment at the older property.

Advice to Management

Crack down on abuse of time off by employees who have no PTO or Vacation days. It's rampant and although it saves the dept money in the form of unpaid days off, you're killing those of us who actually only take time that's in our PTO or vacation bank.

    Pros

    New and exciting technology in use, new challenges to tackle.

    Cons

    There is a high level of contractors that come and go on the IT team. This prevents some groups from having a "team" environment.


  2. "I've thoroughly enjoyed working for this company since I was 18 years old"

    Pros

    World-wide employee discounts at hotels, excellent training seminars, great opportunities for advancement, a company that really seems to care about its employees.

    Cons

    As a salaried employee in the hospitality field, there is no such thing as a 40-hour work week. Advancement opportunities may take a while.
