    I have been working at Gaylord Entertainment full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is good (for now), Generally a fun place to work, Discounts at other hotels, Hotel generally tries to treat employees well

    Cons

    A new managment company (gaylord doesn't own this company anymore, not sure if the CEO listed is still in charge) is taking this place in a very troubling direction, new positions coming in paying less than current employees which probably means cuts down the road, poor benefits pkg, career opportunities will be limited, very poor work/life balance, disconnect with Senior Mgmt., unreasonable goals and demands

    Advice to Management

    get back to what made this hotel great - taking care of the employees
