    Pros

    Nice people, fun atmosphere. Many growth opportunities for those who work hard and are willing to arrive early, and stay late.

    Cons

    Sometimes the compensation was less than desired, a company that practices middle of the road compensation for sure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize your strong associates and give them a reason to stay.

    There is great potential with this company. The company has great ideas about new projects along with partnerships for the future.

    Cons

    The old school culture of work hard with no work life balance. The thought of your only working hard only when you get down an dirty, regardless of title. The stifle creativity and does not build any time of team/family atmosphere. Teams are not set up for success

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To build a more balance team with skill sets to make sure people compliment each other. To move forward in this work world in the future you have to look outside the box.

    Pros

    I enjoyed the network of support from the management team.

    Cons

    We should have had more Leigh way to pay the hourly employees a higher wage, if we had paid more, we probably would have had a lower turnover.

    Opportunities to work in amazing places nationally and a high potential for upward growth.

    Poor work-life balance and the CEO is extremely disrespectful of the employees at every level.

    Consider working for one of the Parks and Resorts division properties where cost of living is very low but salaries are competitive.
