    Pros

    Great company with great benefits, including free meals in the employee dining room and on-sight wellness center

    Cons

    Being a big company, be prepared to follow lots of rules. They are a world class hotel and have high expectations of their employees.

    Pros

    Some of the decorum standards are designed to create a friendly work atmosphere. My favorite of the "P.B. STANDARDS" is B: Basic rule 15-10-5, which states, when passing guests and/or fellow employees (even in the back hallways) ...at 15 feet you make eye contact, at 10 feet smile, and at 5 feet say hi.

    Cons

    Management follows the tenant that employees are the most expensive part of running the resort and that if their time isn't being billed for they should go home. They follow the letter of the federal and state laws by operating that there are NO minimums in regard to hourly employees weekly hours, and yet stipulate that a certain amount of hours be worked in a given period to maintain benefits. So, many 'full-time' employees end up applying vacation hours to the weeks when they aren't being scheduled, just to maintain benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Let employees use some of their benefits before their ONE YEAR anniversary date. to have a 'full-time' employee fail to meet hourly requirements to maintain benefits by not allowing them to apply vacation hours to supplement during slow periods seems immoral. Also, some departments should schedule maintenance during the slower periods and schedule staff to fix/repair gear, rather than 'save on labor' and then have to buy new equipment later.


  6. Excellent company to work for! Benefits are great for families and the community setting is a nice change of pace.

    Pros

    Amazing benefits for FT and PT employees. Community and family feeling. Employee Dining Room. All on-site amenities. Strong company values.

    Cons

    Difficult to advance in ranks. Watched our department's leaders change throughout two years far too often due to a lack of compensation and being over-worked.

    Advice to Management

    Team-leaders are over worked and under paid. Upper management should have a greater number of lower level managers to retain staff.

    Pros

    The scenery is spectacular. Met some wonderful people. Many loyal coworkers give years of service. Working here looks good on resume.

    Cons

    They look for ways to get rid of you if you're close to retirement or full time. There's no loyalty to long term employees. Management prefers to give job advancement to employees who party with them, not to those who are the most qualified. The owners are a good old boys club who feel they don't have to play by the rules. Executives and management follow their examples and treat employees very poorly.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like human beings, not like dirt.

    Pros

    The scenery is spectacular. The events can be exciting. The employee cafeteria occasionally has really good food.

    Cons

    The company expects you to bend over backwards, while they think of ways to avoid proper compensation. Career advancement is non-existent, unless you party off duty with management (which is against company policy). As one reviewer mentioned, some departments suffer from very poor management, and from creating a cliquish atmosphere that prevents truly excellent employees from moving upwards. This greatly affects employee moral, which in turn greatly affects the quality of guest experience. Services are overpriced, such as golf. Too much emphasis placed on building more golf courses, and lodging, but no solutions for long term water usage, or for environmental impact on expansion of infrastructure. What will happen when more people flock to the resort? Traffic and overcrowding, resulting in eventual diminished quality of services. Execs and owners don't seem to care. The biggest con? The ambitions of a few are ruining the legacy.

    Advice to Management

    What advice can you give to someone blinded by avarice? The best advice is stop treating Pebble Beach like it's your own private Idaho. It may be a private resort, privately owned, privately operated, but the two most precious resources, people and the environment (water, land, etc.), are not inexhaustible resources. Neither are they privately exclusive.These two essential resources come from the community at large. Treat them with the dignity, respect and honor they so well deserve.

    Pros

    It is a beautiful place to work. It is right on the coast tucked into a forest. One of the employee benefits is that you can play golf for free.

    Cons

    The executive management has the opinion that you are lucky to work here and doesn't really care about morale.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the employees a little more like they are part of your team and not just a cog in your machine.

    Pros

    Great views. Great atmosphere and working environment and employees. I'm glad I had the opportunity to work there for a short time before I had to move to another city.

    Cons

    There is not much cons to begin with. To be honest, I can't recall a bad experience I had while working here at all.
