    I worked at ClubCorp full-time

    Pros

    You could help people who this company screwed find other employment

    Cons

    Members are very upset at how they are treated. They say KSL stands for kick em screw and leave em. There is no to little training at F and B level the golf courses are whored out to even truck driving companies for corporate outings, the clubs are in very run down condition and only repaired when something falls apart. In one case at Stonebriar the General manager knows zero about food and beverage and has a 95 % disapproval but they wont fire him because of bottom profits. This club has been completely ruined by GM who refuses to greet and talk to members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The old Club Corp hired managers from proven companies Steak and Ale Papadeauxs and would never consider running advertisement for managers in monster jobs . com or greensheet that's why ther are very few old cca managers left. There management training program was the best in the industry as well as ala carte dining

    Pros

    Holiday Bonuses and Most Holidays off

    Cons

    The company could care less about the employees and promoting people that deserve it and want it to management. I worked for three years and received one raise in the three years I worked for them. They like to hide things under the rug and screw the employees on money to cover up for the money that goes missing in other departments. The CEO even came to the visit the club that I worked at and ignored half the staff and didn't even say hi to anybody unless he was addressed first. I think that he was a reflection on the company as a whole that he could care less about the staff and who keeps the company going and members wanting to join. Without a kind staff and caring staff do you really think that members want to be apart of that club? I think the company needs to work more on appreciating their staff and realizing who really keeps the company running. At the end of the day all they care about is the bottom line and honesty that a terrible way to run a company.

    Friendly co-workers, however, not a lucrative long-term career decision because it lacks opportunities for advancement.

    Pros

    The members are great, a lot of perks to the job due to the nature of the business. The do tend to promote from within.

    Cons

    Ceilings within each department. To move up you have to put in time, and you have to be with the company for many years.

    Pros

    Lots of area for personal growth and creativity within the kitchen. Support from the culinary team is beyond helpful, if you're willing to work hard.

    Cons

    Corporate rules and ideas dont always work out as they intend, causing problems and creating mild animosity. Some department heads are unable to create a commanding presence, and are not generally taken as leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow individual clubs to "opt out" of certain promotions, or at the very least modify them to fit the nature of the market in their own areas. What works for Texas does not necessarily work for Atlanta.
