      I have been working at W Hotels full-time

      Pros

      Solid place to work, lots of support and transparency to climb the ladder within company. Management (from executives to in-house) are very easy to talk to, professional, and supportive and understanding of transient employees who are looking for something temporary as they build experience for other pursuits.

      Cons

      Pay is a little low, comparable to other jobs in Seattle. Culture of "comping" and giving into ridiculous customer demands and complaints--not really encouraged to stand your ground, doesn't feel good. But still given tools to meet customer expectations.
