    I have been working at FLIK Hospitality Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Upper Management is engaged and have been with the company for years, working their way up so they know the operations side and challenges that come with it. Holistic approach, not completely bottom line driven. Pay well and plenty of opportunity.

    Cons

    Management vacation is accrued, but then has to be used within calendar year. Use it or lose it is fine, but vacation should be front loaded if this is the case.

    Pros

    It is a part of a much larger company so there could be good opportunities for movement if you build strong relationships. They have some interesting training programs.

    Cons

    Working for Flik but within another company as a third party vendor creates a lot of tension between employees. It was a very confusing dynamic and it made some of us feel like lower class employees.

    I have been working at FLIK Hospitality Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been working for FLIK for nearly 15 years. One of the things I find the most satisfying is that everyone's opinion matters and is genuinely sought by upper management. This company believes in the value of diversity and lives those values daily.

    Cons

    Working for a very large company comes with big company rules that can sometimes seem like not the best fit for the daily business.
