    I have been working at Bacara Resort & Spa full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some good employees, and the grounds are stunning.

    Cons

    Asking managers to come to Glassdoor to give a positive review is pretty classless. Corporate cuts everything to the bone. So many redundant programs and systems to learn makes you feel like a robot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the micro managing, hold managers accountable, and fire them if they don't follow though. Hire salaried managers not just 50 hourly supervisors. If you staff the place like a airport hotel, you get that quality.

    Hopefully, the new management is better.

    Pros

    They paid well for Santa Barbara. Collegues were nice people. It's a pretty place to go to work.

    Cons

    A ruthless, New York real-estate mentality. Ownership enjoyed being cruel and making employees uncomfortable.

    Doesn't Recommend
