    Pros

    Work is fine to many top managers are now VP heavy! Many Jr. Mangers are resentful for success created and will go behind your back!

    Cons

    Avoid the owner lot of huge egos and pretense! Very explosive when help is really not offered when needed lots of finger painting!

    Advice to Management

    Create and honest work place rather then a dishonest two faced company

    I worked at Evans Hotels (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You are working at the beach, even if your office doesn't have a window to see it. Sometimes you have little contact with your boss(es) which can provide you with a degree of freedom to perform a given task. The people you work directly with are some of the best folks you can end up dealing with on a day-to-day basis.

    Cons

    In a word - MANAGEMENT. Or lack of it. In the IT department here you answer directly to an executive. It would be better served if there was a manager and/or director in between to help manage expectations on both sides of the equation. The demands your boss places on you can sometimes border on illegal (last time I checked, non-exempt employees are to be compensated for time worked). Favoritism and/or nepotism are rife with task allocation. Praise is hardly ever evident while condemnation for even the slightest infraction is not only common but usually over the top as well as misplaced. Policies are antiquated at best and completely unreasonable at worst.

    Most times this could actually be considered a hostile work environment. Constant yelling at you, snatching phones out of your hand without warning while on a call, and pounding on desks by an executive out of frustration due to an inability to articulate clearly - all behaviors exhibited by not only your boss, but others in managerial positions who like to think they're your boss. You will be threatened with being outsourced and/or escorted off the property by Security should you even think to question the mandates by your superiors. Do understand that there is no confidentiality at this company; anything you say to anyone will more than likely get back to your boss and you will end up with some type of retaliatory issue for it in some way or form (this includes talking with HR).

    The company takes itself entirely too seriously. Benefits are not the worst but certainly not the best (the 401(k) is non-matching). Pay is above par for the title but below par for the responsibilities. Even the lunch provided is substandard.

    Advice to Management

    HIRE SOMEONE TO MANAGE PROPERLY! Execs think because they earn a big paycheck or have letters after their name that they know more than those in other positions. This is simply not true. Learn to delegate responsibility for decisions and appreciate those who do things right without having to be told exactly what to do. If you can't do that, at least take your own advice and don't take all this personally.

    I worked at Evans Hotels full-time

    Pros

    Small company, opportunity for upward mobility in a reasonable time frame, beautiful properties

    Cons

    No 401k match, although that may have changed since I was last there, doesn't haven't national brand recognition

    Advice to Management

    Better benefits and more paid holidays, increase wages, improve cafeteria food

    Cons

    Management is horrible, never took the time to know their employees. Turnover for management is constant and upper management had no clue what was going on. Relied on hear say and gossip
