Pros: great co-workers, benefits
Cons: micro management, office politics, lots of meetings, no advancement and little pay increases.
I learned a substantial amount in working with our franchisees and the involvement required to make their projects come to life. I also got to experience more interior design than I ever have before and I received additional construction hands on treatment. My co-workers are wonderful, I am still very good friends with most of them outside of work as – more... well. Some of the management was great, in fact I am still very much good friends with the VP of Architecture at Carlson. However, there was a significant amount of micro managing and office politics which was very difficult to deal with. Unfortunately there was bad judgement on acknowledgment of recognition and no room for advancement. My best memories are of working with my co-workers and building my 500th hotel, it was a great experience and an overall great company. – less
