    I worked at Lodgian full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company was true to employees and leadership. Allowed a good range of freedom and had a sound structure. Great focus on HR, Revenue management, and operations.

    Cons

    Company was doomed from onset due to fiscal instability. It was one of the rare publicly traded owner/operator hotel companies, but didn't always capitalize on it's strengths.

    Advice to Management

    It's all over now.

    I worked at Lodgian part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working for Lodgian/Holiday Inn I met a lot of hard working, nice people. It was my first job I was able to land after moving to the Baltimore area. The managers were not micro managers, and sort of let you do your own thing which is good

    Cons

    The management team was always being replaced by new managers. The hours were poor at times. The pay was low. I felt that the hotel was being ran on a small budget. We begged for a nice room service cart, and after months of begging we finally got one, and it was CHEAP! The new management that was brought in was not nice to current employees. It seemed like they wanted to bring in their own people at the time.

    Advice to Management

    Check in at your hotels more often. Ask the actual employees what needs to be changed. It seemed at the time like you prefer to shun the regular employees, and only talk with hotel management. You don't get any real feedback this way.

    Pros

    They provide food and accommodation for foreign employees, the properties are located in exotic locations like the Rocky mountains, which act as mood enhancer for employees. They bring on board employees from many different countries, and thus facilitate cross-cultural bonding.

    Cons

    Bad management feedback, no training, no growth opportunity. Management give no training and reprimand the employees. There are no perks to boost motivation and employee performance.

    Advice to Management

    Please conduct management training programs and train your employees before reprimanding them. Have a counseling session with your team before giving them notice. Find out who enjoys what the best and do proper competency mapping.

    Pros

    good opportunity for growth and flexibility with hours through college.
    able to make adequate wages through hours and tips earned

    Cons

    little reward for tenure in terms of compensation and advancement.
    don't expect to be rewarded for the time you put in or the education you've gotten besides another week of vacation.

    Advice to Management

    it takes more than another week of vacation to retain an employee that has invested themselves in your company.
    try offering competitve wages to your supervisors/middle management.

    Pros

    Job not particularly complex. Good if you like interacting with and servicing guests. Working night shifts can be very quiet at times (a plus if you like that).

    Cons

    Dealing with people up all night "wilding" and disturbing other guests (if you were expecting quietness on the evening shift). Low pay of course.

    Advice to Management

    I think some of the guest management issues have been worked out for the better. The place I worked had an antiquated tracking and management system.

    Pros

    Well managed. Flexible and fair scheduling. Competitive compensation for the type of work. Nice perks including HIE discounts at other locations.

    Cons

    The position required late night shifts that were shared by all employees. Position offered little challenge or chance to advance beyond the desk.

    Advice to Management

    Management was fair and well respected. Only suggested improvement would be a displayed opportunity for challenges and eventual advancement. Would work for this company again.

    Pros

    It is a fairly easy job and is only sometimes stressful. The hours weren't entirely flexible, but concessions were made when they needed to be. My coworkers were also nice.

    Cons

    The job was sometimes boring and I didn't see much room for advancement. Also, I felt disconnected from a lot of the other departments as we didn't interact all that often. There was no importance placed on getting to know anyone other than those you worked directly with.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that people who are in every position feel appreciated and valued. Also, make sure that the work place feels open and that different employees can communicate with each other.
