    Pros

    Time and a half on holidays. Plenty of hours. Opportunities to learn every position.

    Cons

    Will not get paid for the other things you do. Not valued. Will fire you over petty reasons. Managers and GM's are very immature. Slave drivers. Very low pay for positions that get paid $2 more in the same city! Will promise you a promotion just to keep you there but never come through.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees.


  3. "horrible company"

    Pros

    the pros of this company are hard to define if you are an associate. If you are a salaried it is whole different game.

    Cons

    they dont pay you much and it has a slave kind of environment. They over work you and micro manage a little too much. they treat associates like dirt bags and DO NOT LOOK INTO WHAT THE MANAGERS OR GM ARE DOING.

    Advice to Management

    The management is usually not doing much but laughing away and abusing hours and pay they get paid for.

    Pros

    Growing company. CEO is a nice guy. Promotes from within.

    Cons

    Continuous revolving door of managers and staff. Kid managers who are pumped full of company propaganda about team work and guest satisfaction but cannot understand how to develop a positive work environment to achieve either.

    Advice to Management

    Train or hire your hotel managers to actually manage people, not just how to keep up with the massive amounts of paper work and win awards and titles.

    Pros

    emphasis on growth and goals. Fast growing company with properties expanding across the US. Competitive pay with a family-like culture. Open door policy with all management including senior corporate team. Have currently worked for the company for 2 years and have been encouraged and molded into leadership roles that will benefit me for a lifetime.

    Cons

    There can be lots of change to processes, however those changes mold with the company growth as well as consumer demands.

    If you're an outside applicant, you'll get the full salary other than, not much

    Internal advancement is garbage, they don't care about employees, pay is low because they're greedy and use their money on the fancy corporate office.

    Advice to Management

    actually care about your employees.

    I have been working at Vision Hospitality Group (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy job, with a lot of positive experience to be had in regards to:

    - 'Learning it All': working for Visions, you're going to be working pretty much every position possible in an attempt to save money. As a result, you're going to become pretty comfortable with doing everything at the hotel, and you'll be a frequent face around guests. Cooking, cleaning, desk work, whatever the need is, you're often going to be the poor fool to fill it.

    - Costumer Service: Regardless if you're on desk or if you work housekeeping, you're going to run into guests often- and many times, these guests will enjoy your company and praise your work (more so than management). You'll also learn how to take numbers, phone calls, and other such things very quickly.

    - Computer Expertise: If you weren't good with computers before, you sure will be afterwards- being on desk requires you to do almost everything via outdated Windows 7 computers and tangled, overworked phones. You learn a lot of handy tricks and skills that will be handy in other positions.

    Cons

    Oooh boy, this'll be a long one:

    - Little regard for Employees: The Patels(and the management they groom) seem to view their employees as little more than meat for the grinder, an unfortunate irony given all the work they'll make you do. I've work quite a few minimum wage jobs before, and never have I feared for my continued employment more than working for Visions. Co-workers were fired for petty disagreements, personal or medical issues, or - honest to god- let go simply to make room in a shift.

    - Skilled work, Unskilled pay: If you read the Pros section of this review, you'll notice that you're going to be doing quite a lot of work, which unfortunately translates to abysmal pay. Minimum wage isn't enough to pay for any modicum of rent, bills, or schooling in this day and age, so naturally, that's all the majority of Visions employees ever get.

    - Rampant Favouritism: If you brown-nose hard enough in most jobs, you'll get a pat on the back and asked to go back to your work (or beat up in the parking lot for being a goon). Under the Visions brand, being a brown-noser allows you to make innumerable mistakes and generally goof around on the job, full knowing that management will cover for you.

    Advice to Management

    Management, I know you're working with what you've got- it's hard running a business in this day and age, I'm sure. That being said, the people working under you aren't just numbers. Without us working desk and housekeeping and whatever else you may need, you wouldn't have any numbers to count. We all work hard here, in every Visions property, and we're being treated poorly in return.

    Pros

    In general they are great for an associate line level positions. Looks great on paper for their Vision Values.

    Cons

    No support for middle management. Corporate office has a different set of values than they hold the field team to.

    Advice to Management

    listen to your middle management when they tell you they need help don't let them drowned in the field.

    I worked at Vision Hospitality Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunities to advance, getting to meet new people everyday, something new to come into everyday. Some great people to meet and get to know. Seems to like hiring young management and giving them a chance.

    Cons

    Low pay to management and employees. Management wise, unless your a GM the corporate office does not really care much about your input. Company is expanding to fast and is forgetting about their smaller properties and leaving them with an impossible budget to meet and treating them like they are a higher end hotel and in a bigger city even though neither of those two statements are true!

    Advice to Management

    Pay better and make the lower management feel like they are just as important as the General Manager of the hotel. Also, same goes for the hourly employees.. Do not grow more than you guys can handle because eventually the cracks will show and another Hospitality company will come in show you up by exploiting your weaknesses.

    Pros

    Salary, Culture, Benefits, Etc. -- Mitch Patel is one of the most inspiring leaders that I have ever had the honor of working for. If you want to see what kind of a company he runs, simply pay a visit to any hotel he has build and runs. Every property is top notch with no expense spared to ensure the guests have a great experience. This attention to detail is also a part of the culture of VHG. Mitch believes in having a team of inspired and empowered associates that have the tools and resources they need to do their jobs. He then sits back and lets his team do their jobs. This culture is not just from him, it carries itself throughout the company. I regret with all my heart that I am no longer a VHG team member. You see I made some mistakes that lead to my departure and if there was one thing I could do over in life it was that. Mitch and his team are the best of the best. If you are fortunate enough to be able to join Team VHG, then you need to!

    Cons

    There are no cons to working at Vision Hospitality Group. They are quite possibly the world's best hotel ownership and management group!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing! You are the beacon of hospitality in an otherwise dark world. There is no better shining example of what Conrad said was a hospitality professional's responsibility -- to spread the earth with the light and warmth of hospitality!
