    Pros

    Talbot's offers a hospitality work environment one that is dedicated to not only the guests, but the employees as well. Adding that all important personal touch when forming relationships with employees will guarantee Talbot's will keep the quality work force it has and attract many more. After all, the hospitality industry is all about courtesy.

    Balancing work and life is a challenge.

    Continue on the path that upper management has started to employee, changing the way we think our behaviors and incentives to all management and associates.
