    I have been working at Kiawah Island Golf Resort full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employee perks, great co-workers, fun jobs, beautiful work environment, training and development, HR mentors, people are held accountable, interesting guests, STANDARDS, etc.

    Cons

    Commute to work - may travel 20 miles but at least you are moving as opposed to sitting in traffic. You will have to work most holidays but that is part of being in hospitality.

    I worked at Kiawah Island Golf Resort full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Absolutely beautiful environment; great guests; colleagues are wonderful and passionate about what they do; gives employees the opportunity to advance; each employee is empowered to do whatever it takes to make the best guest experience possible

    Cons

    Long drive from Charleston; upper management is at times too focused on the bottom line at the expense of updating equipment and systems; uses antiquated technology; Micro management from hotel directors; hypocrisy; pays well below industry standard; is more focused on what Forbes thinks than guest experiences. President too involved in line level decisions at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new updated software. Operate at your best on a daily basis and stop trying to spot the inspector at every turn. Let the pros do thier jobs (golf doesn't know f&b; f&b doesn't know golf).
