    I have been working at Winegardner & Hammons full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity to move up in the company if you are willing to work for it. Loyalty is very important.

    Cons

    very intense work but worth well worth it

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of Q12. It does not help the staff.

    I worked at Winegardner & Hammons full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Extremely pro-employee with line level employees. Fun employee events, managers are very hands on and care a lot about their teams.

    Cons

    WHI was always stingy, but since joining Pyramid they are trading in the quality they always cared about to be even stingier. Care a lot about their line level employees but treat managers poorly. PTO is a joke. Turnover is so high... this will tell you something.

    Advice to Management

    You used to be about quality... now you are just about the money.

    I worked at Winegardner & Hammons (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    +Genuinely compassionate about their associates +Organized Leadership +Lean staffing model allowed one to work in a variety of areas gaining more knowledge about the operation +Employee Engagement is important - though I'm unsure the results they received were accurate +Ability to grow within the organization +Open Door Policy - always willing to find a resolution +Expectations are clear though there are a lot of them.

    Cons

    -Really difficult to exit people from the organization -The lean operation left a lot of unmanaged areas.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take things so personally when someone disagrees with the business strategy or other decisions. Change is good... several policies & procedures haven't changed since the late 80's. The staffing model needs another leadership role to cover the vacancies in the operation when Supervisors take their day off; i.e. Operations Director - There's almost always an open leadership role and it would be beneficial to have this additional person to assist in those times. I'd also get rid of the AGM title and call them what they are - Director of F&B

    Pros

    The company was great! Great upper management that knew what they were doing and good benefits with great 401k. If you are willing to work hard you will be rewarded! Gallup would weed out losers and while there always though it was dumb but see the importance now!

    Cons

    Wish the pay was higher, could be seen as all boys club! A lot of managers , GM and AGM are men.

    Advice to Management

    Our hotel was sold and bought by different owners and now managed by a different company. Everyone at the hotel misses WHI and the perks of working for the company. Just be careful what you wish for. The grass is never greener on the other side!
