    I worked at HEI full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good coworkers, renovated sleeping rooms and meeting spaces

    Cons

    Skeleton crew across all departments. Managers are expected to fill in.

    Advice to Management

    The current labor formula does not work.

    I worked at HEI full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I don't think they're at the Boulder location any longer, but as a contract manufacturer, they were a great place to learn and develop, though development was a self-realized activity.

    Cons

    The management team there was not a healthy fit for me. Compliance felt like a nice-to-have, not a must have.

    I worked at HEI full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    At the time it was work that most people could do with training and you could get as many hours per week as you could handle.

    Cons

    The business was ran into the ground by poor management. Spending lots of money on 5s. I'd compare it to a sinking ship they were constantly trying to dump water rather then fix the leak.

    Advice to Management

    Talk with the employees and see what they need and respond accordingly, there's no use being on the outside looking in.

    Pros

    I enjoy the guests and appreciate the hard working sales staff.

    Cons

    Management and Human Resource is Horrible...You cannot give any constructive criticism with out some sort of passive aggressive retaliation..It unfortunately has turned into a untrusting work environment between Hourly Employees, Management, and The Company itself. Communication is Horrible!! Employees are left hanging on a week to week basis..this is so they can change the ground rules to the next level to get more work out of you, or get you to quit...The feeling is- They want anyone that has worked for any longevity out.. and new and cheaper in...no matter what your work ethics are...or if your management or hourly...In one year they have turned this property from a luxury hotel into a cheap nickel and dime on the beach..This company has no ethics or class...just$$$

    Advice to Management

    Open your doors for communication with out retaliation. Smile and practice what you Preach..

    I worked at HEI full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunity to turn the company around from loosing money to being in the black and earning positive revenue.. I had a great working relationship with all my senior management peers and subordinates.

    Cons

    The executive staff and the bank were not willing to wait long enough for the improvements to take hold. In one more month the facility would have been in the black.

    Advice to Management

    Don't give up.

    I have been working at HEI full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Since being hired two years ago, I have gone from part time to full time, earned benefits, and the opportunity is increasing. The perks are two fold since they are managers, we are offered management perks AND perks of the brand

    Cons

    Some of the challenges about working at my location is the supervisors may take suggestions for improvement but there are many hoops to jump through before implementation.

    Advice to Management

    Please allow regular opportunities for communication of new policies ang logistics

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

    Pros

    The hotel is great! It's busy mid-week and has a lot of functions on the weekends. The hotel sells itself. A lot of industry around and also 10 hotels on the same street. Great place to work but I worked for a great GM who is no longer there.

    Cons

    People come and go so it's hard when there is turnover at the front desk. Meals are free and it's right off the highway so it's easy to get to.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to listen to the employees. They are involved in the everyday operations and know what the real story is.
