    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 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.

    Pros

    Advancement opportunites are the number one reason for working for HEI. There are many areas one can expand one's experience into as long as you display the drive and motivation to doing so. Management is open to ideas on innovation and streamlining especially from those in the 'trenches'. Employee morale is really good to use an old cliche it really is a family like atmosphere and as such there is always a lot of support when you need it. It is not only a job it is actually a life style. With HEI you will travel to parts of the USA you didn't even know existed and you will grow as a result of these unique experiences.

    Cons

    "Not working is not an option" ever....direct quote from management. The job is time intensive and you must be always ready to go, go, go. I suppose that to be fair it is the nature of the work to be in continous motion but at times it can really be overwhelming. As a result of this there really is not much of a balance in terms of work/life issues. You can only take time off in the most extreme of circumstances and even then it is often clear that you create a vaccum with your absence and others must pick up the slack. The compensation is decent and fair but compared to other companies in the same buisness it is not particularly lucrative.

    Advice to Management

    More time off is needed by the field employees, it is easy to burn out.

    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 worked at HEI full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people were very nice. Great opportunity to learn about a Medical Device company. The company offered a decent pay wage.

    Cons

    To many responsibilities for one person. Need more qualified people to do the salary work. People were let go every 3 months. Favored employees can display negative energy. Not a stable place to work for and no opportunities for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with the employees and don't display hope if nothing changes. Don't take for granted the hard working Manufacturing team. They are the employees who make HEI.
