    I worked at White Lodging full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great career advancement, different markets to check out, leadership development and mentoring- you can’t put a price on being mentored and challenged by the very best. White Lodging also does a great intern program and has just as good reputation overseas at these schools as it does in the US.

    Cons

    Constantly new initiatives, work life balance is not really monitored unless you are an OTE Manager, not many new Select hotels opening, appears to be mainly Full service.

    Pros

    The culture and the family you build is like no other. The parties are amazing and connecting with people is always a plus at any work place

    Cons

    Moving up in the corp office is MUCH harder then in the hotels. You can work your butt off and not get recognized.

    Advice to Management

    Each department should have an employee recolonization program at the first pre shift of each month.
