Pros

Walt Disney World partner park ticket

Cons

Unrealistic expectations set forth by upper management. Upper management's style of leadership is to motivate by job threats. I have been working in fear of losing my job if I don't meet the unrealistic expectations. Terrible medical benefits! For a high profiting company they could do much better. Hopefully you have a good savings account so you can pay for medical bills if you get sick.

Advice to Management

Look at the positive in your director's work ethics. Listen to what they say when they show you that the expectations are unrealistic.

    Pros

    -Large number of properties to transfer to for growth
    -Competitive wages for hourly
    -Great benefits, ***401K program is great, so take advantage as not all employers offer matching
    -Advancement and development is offered and encouraged from starting position to supervisory level

    Cons

    -To transition into management is very rare. When management positions become available, it is oftentimes outside hires that are chosen rather than exceptional talent that is already present at the time. I saw this happen 3 times in 2 different departments at my property. 2 of those times, the outside hire didn't last more than 3 months.

    Advice to Management

    The company has great development programs & tools to further the advancement of budding associates, however is rather over-promising and under-delivering when it comes to actually putting that mantra into action.

  2. Great management. Worthwhile opportunity.

    Pros

    Good balance between family and work life. Opportunity to earn good living.

    Cons

    It's still timeshare. Sales override policies.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to the corporate culture of doing the right thing at all times not when it is convenient. Go back to culture of employee & associate team building events. Build more trust from Director level position to associates. Trust your senior managers, they are your boots on the ground and know how to motivate, lead and direct associates to consistent success.
