    I worked at SBE Entertainment Group (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to say you work for the SBE, SLS brands and sometimes use the perks.

    Cons

    They still have no clue what they are doing when it comes to running hotels. No job security at all. They will find a away to get rid of you if they have to make budget cuts and make you feel like you where a horrible fit. The HR team's must hate their job for how shady and horrible they have to to good people. The Ownership's are what run SBE, not the SBE executives.
