    Pros

    Family atmosphere - many employees have been there since the resort opened in the 1980s. Opportunities for advancement by hiring from within the company. Managers were respectful of you and your time and were willing to work with you if they saw potential in your abilities.

    Cons

    There is some favoritism that occurs - if you make friends with your bosses you're much more likely to get ahead faster.

    Pros

    The company overall has good benefits, the salary is okay and also is the 401(k) program. Generally the employees are friendly and courteous to each other. The location is beautiful and aesthetically pleasing.

    Cons

    The department budgets tend to be very aggressive and is difficult to adhere. Orange Lake Resorts is a small company but is acquiring many boutique resorts which seems to over stretch what they do well. The acquisitions for these new properties drive profit margins smaller thus creating aggressive budgets and at times seems unrealistic. At times we are severely understaffed causing issues when trying to find coverage when unexpected events, such as employee resignations, occur. Multiple instances myself and others were expected to work over 21 consecutive days without compensation as a salaried employees due to the lack of coverage and support. My previous leader was inexperienced in my department and also lacked basic function know hows of the resort therefore unable, in my opinion, to grow and lead the business.

    Advice to Management

    The current GM is not involved with the day to day operation and the staff. The lack of experience and knowledge of operating a resort with the amenities and structure is preventing forward drive and execution. The current GM is attempting to maintain and is not perceived to be doing so at a high level. The GM's lack of leadership has created frustration and lack of confidence from their subordinates, creating uncertainty in leading and driving the resort forward to create a high level of work conditions and guest experience. Please provide strong leadership to keep the staff engaged to provide excellence through there duties and work.
