    Pros

    The culture is great they really care about the employees. Even more management is always willing to lend a helping hand.

    Cons

    You may find yourself waiting for years to move up the corporate ladder. There are coworkers that have been there for up to 4 years that are doing the same job as when the came in.

    Advice to Management

    Create a program to mentor your exceptional employees for other position so they wont leave the organization.

    Cons

    Deceptive selling tactics encouraged. Owners mostly unhappy.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your reps better. Only a "chosen few" get treated with any respect.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to grow quickly within the company. Company and brand is growing quickly and expanding business.

    Cons

    Limited opportunity to advance in certain departments if your not careful on which type of job you pursue with this company. My advice is choose the right department you see yourself in long term and embrace development and communicate your willingness to grow with your leader.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing but try to embrace the employees that express strong interest in growing with the company even if the employee sees advancement in another role or department.

    Pros

    The company is growing and they promote within which is very exciting because it allows myself along with other employees to have the opportunity to continue to grow in our careers! I've met employees that have been with the company 10 plus years and have grown into management positions or have transferred into other departments that have allowed those individuals to start a professional career. I think that if you have employees that have been working with this company for that long then this company must be that great. I've had to jump from company to company because I wasn't happy in those jobs. I can honestly say that I'm really happy here because of a great job with good pay and great managers and coworkers.

    Cons

    This is the largest timeshare/vacation ownership property worldwide so there is a lot of work to go around. This is however a pro as you have job security.

    Advice to Management

    Management in this company and particularly in my department is very caring towards their employees so I would suggest to keep up the great work! Recognition for a great job done is part of their culture and I love being a part of it.

    Unrealistic goals

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with the employees in a fun sales environment.

    Cons

    Revolving door of employees. The company has unrealistic sales goals that are almost impossible to meet in the timeshare industry.

    Advice to Management

    Allow new hires to work a little longer instead of letting them go so quickly.


  9. Great training and good benefits; however the culture of the overall business was not for me.

    Pros

    Benefits, work/life balance, opportunity to earn considerably more money than most other jobs available in the area.

    Cons

    Seasonal market, sales managers expectations for sales reps to work in the 'grey' area and the unwritten rule of high pressure sales tactics on customers to buy. The 'less is more' approach, when it comes to preparing sales reps with knowledge of how the pricing of vacation packages is structured hinders performance. Lastly knowing various price points in advance would greatly benefit the majority of the sales force. It's a whole lot easier to sell something when you understand how it works!

    Advice to Management

    Be proactive about asking for and implementing feedback from sales reps on the customers wants and needs and how to improve the overall sales cycle process.

    Pros

    Typical Sales position requires a lot of mental stamina in hearing "No" 90% of the time. If you've been in Sales, you expect that! The company does offer an awesome opportunity to make money! They also have been quite "employee friendly" by hosting huge parties and awards dinners!

    Cons

    It's difficult to sustain the level of Sales achievement necessary to meet and/or exceed your quota - a very high turnover position.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the very high cost of turnover by adjusting Sales Quotas.

    Pros

    Great people. The company is growing so there is a lot going on which is great for learning. Good corporate events.

    Cons

    Pay is horrible. I also don't see a lot of promotions within the company. Not a lot of training offered to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Train your people instead of bringing people from the outside. If you give more responsibility to an employee compensate them appropriately.
