    Pros

    Great morale and hours. Respectful company with values. I have to disagree with most on here, point the finger in the mirror and let's talk shop. I appreciate the pay increases and feel valued to be a part of the team.

    Cons

    Outdated accounting and communications between departments and employees. There are no long term concrete plans to move around staffing. Reward those by moving to preferred destinations.

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip on the policy and provide a standard training program for other employees.

    Pros

    My direct supervisor and VP were wonderful to work for. They offered great support. They allowed me to determine my own methods for completing various duties. They sought out and truly valued my feedback. I was able to work with Regional Managers and Vice Presidents on a daily basis and was often included in important decision making. I left due to family medical issues. I wish I could have stayed with the company. The company is growing and offers opportunities for personal growth and professional growth.

    Cons

    The only con is the medical insurance. It may have changed by now, but it was a high deductible plan with a high monthly premium.

    Advice to Management

    I loved the changes the company was implementing. Continue to do what you are doing.

    Pros

    Great seasonal opportunities in many areas of experience. Meet great people to work with and visitors. Few permanent, year round career opportunities.

    Cons

    Low pay for company expectations, therefore you are working with some individuals with questionable work ethics, this can be frustrating at times.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a competitive wage to workers, both camp workers and local residents.

    Pros

    There are many locations throughout the US

    Cons

    They hire people in Regional or above positions, that have never worked in the industry before, and they do not understand the industry. Property management/hospitality industry is much different than a RV resort/property manager.

    Advice to Management

    Hire/promote growth from within, providing cross sectional training. Pay your lower employees more, especially the ones that show loyalty.

    Pros

    The majority of the rank and file here are really down to earth.

    Cons

    When upper Management was notified of a mean and bullying mid manager - it was swept under the carpet.

    Advice to Management

    DON'T ask a department head to review policies and have staff fill out a questionnaire that involves that department head directly...someone from HR SHOULD be conducting this meeting and collecting the questionnaires!!!
