    I have been working at Bluegreen Vacations

    Pros

    I was in marketing for many years and it was a great job and well compensated. We had a great director for a few years and our manager was mostly there to do our paper work and commissions, allowing us to concentrate on doing great work.

    Cons

    After a change in directors, we went from being treated like professionals to being treated like burger flippers and having to follow policies that made absolutely no business sense. I felt like I cared about how the company was doing and meeting our quotas more than our manager or director, which was a very disappointing feeling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more pro-active. Come to troubled resorts or at least call some of the employees yourselves to see what types of problems are causing a resort to be troubled. Don't lose all of your great employees due to bad management.

    I have been working at Bluegreen Vacations full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for Bluegreen for more than 10 years. I am amazed each year with how they try to make the associate benefits better and better. The rich PTO plan, the subsidized medical benefits and the generous 401k match really stands them apart from other companies.

    Cons

    I really don't have any complaints at this time about Bluegreen. The salary and benefits are very competitve and the Senior team has the associates and guest experience at heart at all times.

    I have been working at Bluegreen Vacations full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good income, great bonus program, fair benefits, and fun job if you preform.

    Cons

    300% turn of sales teams, meat grinder, high pressure sales, hard sales pitch even if you're a hunter, upper mgt does not care about the turns, and your life will be short lived if you don't hit your numbers; which your base will not matter anyways!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop counting your money, start listening to your sales teams, and stop "telling" them how it is going to be done with no idea on the issues that face the front line sales people.
    The culture is poor because the front line for the most part knows that the upper management team truly does not care about their well being.

    Pros

    Met a lot of great friends.

    Cons

    I have been working in timeshare for 10plus years. This place is the ABOSULTE HORRIBLE. I REPEAT! HORRIBLE.
    I can not stress enough that you do not want to work here. They are so hard to work for. The managers are rough and treat sales rep/in house sales reps terrible. If you decide to go to work here this better be your last offer and starving. I am not a negative person but this company is a bad experience for everyone. The cancellations is high and your numbers better be high at ALL times or you will be out of a job. I left the company because they let me go because of cancellations. You can not hardly reach bonus here and they will make sure of it. The bonuses is based upon how many tours you get. You do not nor never will have control over that part. I left there was 2-3 people that been there only 4yrs and their other family members worked there.
    I left a good job thinking I would make better money, now I am unemployed. Don't get me wrong I have been a top performer and Blue green Corporation ruined my life. We constantly walked on egg shells when working. We couldn't talk, drink their coffee, get up to use bathroom ,,stand in straight line, drink water, eat. Crazy stuff I know it bizarre !!! DONT WORK HERE!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You treat your employees really bad. I feel for them. You should change your leadership to be more positive.
