Regional Director of Revenue Management (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – May 24, 2017
Davidson is a great company to work for. While the company is going through some changes, it is a company that I have enjoyed working for.
Everyone is treated with respect and generally, everyone gets along well. Benefits are good, although recent medical insurance changes seem to be a downgrade, and the 401-k match is below industry average, in my opinion.
Overall though, it is an excellent choice of employment.

Bartender (Former Employee) – Princenton nj – January 23, 2015
Be very careful about this place. They have hired 6 bartenders in 4 months and we all quit for different reasons the outlet manager is great and the night supervisor is good however you are there all night cleaning. Many of mangers in different departments try to get in your business. Hr is about worthless. You will make good money but when u add up the hours u put in it's not worth it
Professional (Former Employee) – Memphis – January 21, 2015
I worked for this company for roughly 1 1/2 years after they bought the previous hotel I worked for, a Marriott. Unfortunately there are too many gray areas as it relates to the policies and procedures. I'm a rather structured person and I believe that ones success can be determined by the training they receive. Well how successful can one be with little or no training? Instead of having mandatory meetings about PTO or Team Member Opinion Surveys, how about a class telling team members about something that is going to assist with their longevity with the company.
Within the department I worked in, there was a lot of pettiness with management. One manager would always attempt to throw someone under the bus to cover themselves which created a rather complex work environment. One of the other managers had "trust issues" and was quick to say they didn't trust people. How can you work in hospitality and have such a difficult time trusting people? There's something seriously wrong with that picture which caused many people in the hotel to be guarded. Never knew what you were going to endure on a daily basis.
Managers received free parking while hourly team members had to pay anywhere between $2.50 to $5.00 a day. Considering the minimal pay they offer "non-management team members, it should've been the other way around. The GM was ok, but I do question how strong his leadership is as it relates to the dynamic of the hotel.
There are many areas of improvement for the company, but I wish anyone who desires to work for Davidson misch success. Just be prepared to rely hand andmore... foot on your manager to help you achieve success...no room for thinking or being proactive.less
Convention Center hotel
No free lunch, paying for parkIng, lack of structure; obvious division between management and hourly team members
