    I worked at Magnuson Hotels full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wasn't so much managed by an owner bur the hank who employed Leisure Corp to manage all activities of the horel. Leisure had good people to work for but never received a raise or much appreciation for a great job.

    Cons

    Never showed much appreciation, raises or other benefits for a job well done.

    Advice to Management

    Show appreciation to your great employees that give your guests the best stay of their lives.

    I worked at Magnuson Hotels full-time

    Pros

    there aren't any good reasons, now that the place has been sold

    Cons

    the ownership has never run a hotel before. they have no clue how to run one, but they act like they know everything. the representative who lives on site treats everyone with bitter sarcasm. not a pleasant man to work for.

    Advice to Management

    either learn what you are doing, or learn how to listen to the people you have working for you who do know what they're doing.

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Overall a fun atmosphere to work in. Most everyone got along as it was a small office. Company offered a profit share quarterly bonus program which was a nice perk.

    Cons

    No room for advancement that I saw, partially due to it being such a small office. I found it very boring place from the work standpoint. Many of the customers, though they used our service, were very resistant to actually listen to our advice.

    Pros

    Did not have the pressures of a franchise hotel. It was a great place for a first time General Manager. The owner didn't bother you much.

    Cons

    The hotel is over 40 years old and it looks like it. The owners were not willing to pay for the upgrades it needed. It was not a place with a future.
