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

    Pros

    Sought employment with Interstate as they were ranked 1 of 100 for 2015's top management companies.

    - Little oversight from VP which enables you more flexibility
    - Great annual conference
    - Continual goals within region to succeed ie. top preforming hotels become contenders for an annual cruise

    Cons

    - Zero training
    - No guidance from Regionals
    - Minimal support from Interstate when dealing with hotels owners directly
    - Though the option to grow is available, direct regionals provide little support when looking to make a move within the company
    - Not provided adequate tools to accomplish your job ie. laptop

    Advice to Management

    Check in with your on-site teams to ensure they're doing okay, as opposed to only when you need something from them.
