management changed quite often and so did the mood. a lot of politics going on and there were a lot of "senior" people who had been with the property for a long time were set in their ways and opposed to change for sake of improvements.

I had a wonderful experience under a great management and learned a lot from my supervisor. I felt so horrible when I lost our executive F&B director in 6 months of my career starting and did not feel comfortable working there.

While at the Sheraton Silver Spring I was afforded the opportunity to cross train in other departments. My manager would do weekly training whereby I would learn his job duties as well.

Management was lacking in support, lacking in transparency and provided no tools. Basically you are on your own. Direct report had no input, totally non-responsive and indecisive.

I've learned a lot about working and about myself since working here. Challenges come but there's always a sense that everyone wants to do what they can to hold each other up.

And I feel the time I've spent here helped prepare me for whatever comes next.

When they changed management it went down hill, they do not care about you at all. They definitely don’t care about the customers! We had rats and the rooms smelled very bad we had to lie about why the rooms smlled so bad when it was the hotels fault!

Sheraton Rockville was my first hotel position and true culinary position. We prepared a lot of our menu items from scratch. I learned how to set our meeting space up with chairs, tables, and various equipment. It was a very diverse environment and we all loved working with one another. We were family while away from our natural family. We made our guest feel right at home with our hospitality. During my tenure at Sheraton Rockville, we received two diamonds from AAA Travel Club.
Pros
Free meals, our staff, and our guests

The workplace is fun and all Department head are teamplayer. The Hotel has a very active Dir of Human resources, that organized activities and events for the staff. The company rewards & recognized good performers.
As a complex Dir of Finance, I am involved in the daily operations of both hotels that overlaps with my functions Finance head. There's very low turnover in my department. Mentoring is a big thing for me. I conduct training for financial review with my staff & Dept head. Its mostly long hours for me so I take advantage of slow period to re charge.

I am comfortable with the working place, the company and people.
Pros
I am comfortable with the working place, the company and people.

This was a beutiful hotel to work for,but it is going in a different direction from hotel it was.I have enjoyed working here,and wish the changes would be better,but they are not.Will always have great memories of this hotel,and people i have worked with through the years.The area where this hotel is located is highly saturated with restaurants,and fast food,as well as a Walmart store which has cut into business
Pros
free lunch, great benefits, union shop
Cons
Parking is bad during large events, hotel needs many repairs, and updates
