    Pros

    Good work-life balance, reasonable compensation, many lifelong employees, great jobs for great salespeople, very focused on the satisfaction of the customer

    Cons

    Political Cornell leadership, minimal raises and promotions, unable to close new deals, some legacy leaders are totally out of their depth and disengaged, unwilling to try new things

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Senior leadership needs to reconnect with the field and the marketplace
    - Middle management needs to gain a sense of urgency
    - Development team needs to listen to fresh ideas and needs career path

    Pros

    Working in a commission based job sometimes has negative connotations, however the sales and marketing department at OceanWatch is always growing with new limitless opportunity. This job is what you make it, and the harder you work the more $$ you make!

    Cons

    Change is difficult for some to deal with, but if you like changing pace and direction frequently then you will thrive in this environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is important to hit budget, especially for management. However, talking about it in the way where employees only hear about the best interests of upper management hitting their bonuses can be upsetting when some of those budget cuts are detrimental to certain departments.

    Pros

    Good reputation of company and income pre-qualifications help.

    Cons

    Unrealistic sales expectations based on tour flow. Sales rotation changes daily and commissions change monthly. Must wait a year for any transfer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set commission rates and bonus hurdles so that employees can have a steady expectation. Use a true rotation without favoritism.

    Pros

    This is a good place to start your learning experience in the marketing/sales industry. Some holidays off. Good work life / work balance. Training is on your own available on line.

    Cons

    Most of the management teams have worked together at other properties in their hay day! ( it's like a family reunion among management team). Promoting to management could be difficult or challenging, you may have to put in many years and move to other sites to promote within. Compensation plans changes frequently.
