    I worked at Billy Casper Golf full-time

    Pros

    Meet great people who play at your course. Teach people how to play. Learn new processes to manage budgets. Staff who you work with are nice.

    Cons

    You learn a lot about a company when they let you go. Must be in the inner circle to stay employed/have a future with the company. Corporate only talks to you if they need something. Not much coaching when you become full time as a golf pro, GM , or Asst. GM. Their ACE mentality about the people/staff at each course is not completely followed through by the VSO. Not a very trustworthy regional team.

    Advice to Management

    No advice as they don't listen.

    I worked at Billy Casper Golf full-time

    Pros

    Free to play golf at the course. Pro shop guys were great at getting us a tee time even if it was busy

    Cons

    Pay and hours weren't great, and the general manager wasn't very social or friendly with the maintenance staff.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of introducing the employees from the pro shop/range/halfway house to the maintenance staff. I only had one opportunity to meet some of those workers.

    I worked at Billy Casper Golf full-time

    Pros

    Golf is a tough business, but BCG makes it work. Golf will never be a get rich place to work. They do a nice job working towards making a profit and paying appropriately.

    Cons

    Beyond the GM level, there is not much opportunity.

    I have been working at Billy Casper Golf full-time

    Pros

    Great team to work with. Generally positive environment with approachable upper management. Good projects and excellent support from management.

    Cons

    No transparency. If upper management has a path it does not translate well to the rest of the team. There is a lot happening and no one knows what anyone else is working on. Benefits are also lacking, if you play golf you still need to know the right person to get you game on.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open and communicate to the team what the plan is.

    I have been working at Billy Casper Golf full-time

    Pros

    Work environment is flexible working at the VSO (Vienna Support Office). Upper Management has a clear vision and goal for the company. The people who work in the office are great and make working here a pleasure.

    Cons

    Unless you play a lot of golf, the benefits are not very good. No year to year roll-over of sick/vacation leave. No 401k match.

    Pros

    The atmosphere here is wonderful. Everyone is a team and trained very well.

    Cons

    One of my boss's would blame others for his mistakes. A good manager should take responsibility.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure everyone is who they claim to be personality wise. This person would act kind and friendly to customers and in front of people, and was extremely rude and hurtful behind closed doors.

    I worked at Billy Casper Golf (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed working environment, hourly pay plus tips, great work-life environment, the atmosphere in general made you want to help out all the employees regardless if it was your job or not.

    Cons

    Sometimes the golfers would be rude, but that comes with the customer service industry. Some management was very unprofessional and assumed the worst opposed to giving the benefit of the doubt.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management: Pay more attention to the lower management, sometimes they overstep their boundaries.
