Pros

4 weeks paid vacation with really reasonable prices to use company properties.There is a benefit package in a world where you may not get benefits. Standard Monday through Friday 8:30-5 job.

Cons

Black out dates often make employee use of resorts a joke. In the corporate office, as an entry level admin, you will not have very much opportunity in front of you and you will have to fight/compete with your coworkers for recognition AND projects.

Advice to Management

Invest in some modern technology for things like scanning, remotely filing and payroll so that you free up some man hours of useless work and potentially tapping into truly talented and motivated individuals. Management could also learn some basic employee retention strategy.

    Pros

    Close to places to eat breakfast and lunch. Benefits are decent in order to compensate for other things.

    Cons

    Bluegreen is a place you go work at when you have no where else to go work at. No career track in IT. You only move up if you have connections and so forth. Most of them worked together in a previous job. The management leaders fight each other all the time, especially application development, and blaming others for poorly and outdated written code and applications.
    No one seems to want to take accountability in IT and fire employees when projects get deployed late or over budget as scape goats.
    High turnover is the norm in IT and in general.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the current management in IT and bring in people who care to fix the problems with their applications and systems and treat employees right. Too much money is spent blaming employees when is management in this case. Start having managers get reviewed and surveyed by the employees to see what happens. The attitudes of managers would change overnight....

    Pros

    Tips left in rooms. Some coworkers were nice.

    Cons

    Manager had a preference for young, pretty girls. Visiting district manager was an old pervert.
    Housekeeping staff were required to haul buckets of cleaning products weighing over 20 pounds all over a 13 acre property, and in all types of weather. The company would sometimes force overtime of up to 14 hours. Pay was low, and any advancement opportunities were given to friends and relatives. A lot of nepotism and age discrimination.
