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

    Pros

    -Many local properties have autonomy over their operations.
    -Local management is empowered to make decisions on day-to-day operations.
    -Mid-size operator has opportunities to move laterally or promotion.
    -Variety of different levels of service in lodging (budget, mid-tier, and luxury)

    Cons

    -Only takes action to improve a property when it has reached a crisis.
    -Senior management doesn't seem knowledgable of property-level issues.
    -Technology for systems is outdated.
    -No reaction to poor employee survey results.
    -Benefit costs to employees slightly higher than comparable companies.

    Advice to Management

    Take some serious action on property-level issues that come to your attention.
    Establish values that are properly communicated and adhered to.
    Only accept management contracts that are financially feasible--if an owner wants you to run a property with no expenses, no capital improvements, and yield a high profit--simply say 'no.'
