    Pros

    The people!! My team are some of the best people I have ever met. They help be a better person and employee. They give me feedback anytime I ask for it, and sometimes when I don't. The managers let me job shadow with them all the time. And the benefits!! Gaylord has great insurance and retirement plan.

    Cons

    Some of the negative feedback from clients. But that's way we are there, to make it better!! They like to complain that the place is too big. Well, that's why we are considered a resort. Also I work in a building besiee the resort, that may have mold.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! You guys do an amazing job. You let us know about everything (well, what we need to know) thats going on in the company.

    Pros

    I love this job. Their number one commitment to their STARS is "industry leading training and development." Senior Management has given me the tools and opportunity to grow personally and professionally. Especially at the Opryland property they have a positon for everything. I've seen a call center manager move over to be a restaurant manager. An engineer be promoted to a housekeeping manger and so on. This job gives you a ton of flexibility. If you get bored easily, like me, it's hard to find a work place like this one. I am a VERY satisfied employee.

    Cons

    Like in all hospitality the schedule can be very demanding. The guests make the schedule so if their is a big turn of the house expect to work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
