    Pros

    I cannot see any other than adding ink to my resume

    Cons

    Low pay, terrible benefits, micro managed to death, inhumane treatment, ignored by upper management if you're not FNB or Golf, alleged career opportunities are a joke including transfers unless you're a GM or Golf Superintendent, good salesmen that lied from the start of taking this project over. Did I mention the low compensation?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop ignoring your mid level staff. We have ideas and could be valuable assets instead of a number which you want to replace with cheaper and less qualified labor. If you were serious about this career opportunity listing you brag about, try updating it and not leaving openings from last year on it to make it look impressive. If you actually cared about retention and promotion, give these people a chance to succeed.

    Unethical corporate behaviors & Very high turnover

    Pros

    If you like discounted Golf at high-end facilities, this is the place to work. If you need to find a job fast and you have low standards, you'll be hired immediately. If you are up for an almost impossible challenge and more stress than it's worth, this is the place to be.

    Cons

    Free golf is a thing of the past. Turnover is unbelievable. Compensation is worse. Eductation reimbursement? Ha.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start holding yourselves and those beneath you (us) accountable again. Believe it or not, the idea was working...until you let a certain 'someone' leave the company, or rather - he was forced out.

    Pros

    Club members are wonderful.
    Free golf on Mondays.
    Plenty of available work.
    Free swimming, although one Monday per month only.

    Cons

    Both club and corporate managers do not trust their hourly staff.
    Rampant over staffing.
    Troon does not have such thing as "anonymous employee complaints" and punishes staff for contacting corporate with issues in need of resolving.
    High employee turnover rates.
    Management provides a hostile work environment, constant breathing-down-your-neck.
    Club managers only reward employees who bring in the most money, they disregard all else.
    Troon skimps off 2-3% of automatic tips/ gratuities for "club expenses".
    No raises are given.
    Unless you are a manager, to Troon: you are worthless, you are replaceable, you are a potential thief, you don't know anything and you are their property.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you do not make your hourly employees happy and treat them poorly, your business will take a nosedive.
