I worked at Joie de Vivre full-time (More than a year)

Pros

A couple free nights at a JDV hotel each quarter

Cons

- Dysfunctional management
- Lack of integrity
- Low pay

Advice to Management

Treat your employees with respect. Be honest with them. Pay them appropriately so they don't flee to other companies. Give them genuine career opportunities. Offer decent benefits. JDV doesn't compare to other local companies. There's quite a bit of lip service to old JDV programs and services, the reality is a disappointment.

    I have been working at Joie de Vivre full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Growing company with the merger of Commune hotels. Opportunity for growth is expanding rapidly.

    Cons

    Corporate office is going through so many changes which trickles down lack of communication to the hotels. We are not getting answers on a lot of the direction the company is heading, bonus plans changing consistently with lack of communication to external sales departments at the hotels.

    I worked at Joie de Vivre full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I would say the best part about working for JDV were the people that work there. The hotel I was working at got purchased by JDV and they came in and made a lot of changes. All in all the changes they made to the hotel were okay. They made some renovations to the F&B outlets of the hotel and brought in a new chef ect.

    Cons

    While I was working at JDV there was a lot of change going on in upper management which led to an atmosphere of uncertainty amongst employees. With all of the renovations I would have expected to see in increase in business but that was not the case. I feel like JDV could have done a better job marketing and advertising to bring in business.
