Pros

They hire people with very little experience for substandard wages. This is a good way to get experience in the hospitality industry. They often hire people who are not qualified for their jobs and with little or no experience. Once you get in you will make a lot of mistakes and get none to very little support but you can really learn alot about the industry. It is very sink or swim and tons of overwork but you can really move up quickly as people leave the company for better paying jobs at other companies. This can allow you to get some great experience and move up the ladder more quickly.

Cons

They tend to use up people. People are constantly moving on to better paying jobs at other companies. This means that there are often voids in staff and they expect others to pitch in and get things done. It is a constant situation of understaffing. Since they don't offer standard rates of compensation positions go unfilled for long periods of time. There is not sense of urgency until the owner of the company or an investor needs information. Often the company does not pay for adequate systems or doesn't plan so after investing the minimum they have to "redo" or they run out.

Advice to Management

Things would go more smoothly if people were paid adequately and positions were staffed adequately.

    I worked at Stonebridge Companies full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I worked for Stonebridge for a total of 8 years with a short break in the middle (hotel management gets very draining). Through that time, the company grew from managing around 25 hotels to over 50 hotels, which provided great opportunity for promotions and experience. Loved the improvements in corporate systems over the years, the increasingly better senior managers and overall direction the company is taking.

    Cons

    Due to the rapid growth, performance was demanding. Considerable amount of reporting to corporate sometimes got in the way of working with hotel guests. Metrics were initially biased toward revenues, not service but in recent years, there has been a significant change toward service first, which results in improved revenues.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful to promote within whenever possible as this is a prime motivating factor for associates.
