    I worked at Pebble Beach part-time for less than a year

    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.

    I worked at Pebble Beach

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Pebble Beach full-time for more than 5 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Pebble Beach

    Pros

    Looks good on a resume, beautiful place to work if you're outside.

    Cons

    Politics prevent you from moving up. There is no career growth or development here unless you're a 'favorite'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get off your high horse

    I have been working at Pebble Beach full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Beautiful place to work; excellent salary and benefits. The special events that are held here every year bring the world's spotlight to us. You get to meet and interact with many interesting people. One of the greatest ownership groups in US business history runs the place -- Clint Eastwood, Dick Ferris, Arnold Palmer, Bill Perocchi, and Peter Ueberroth.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be an issue, particularly during certain times of the year. People have to work hard to make this place the best golf resort in the world. Career opportunities can be somewhat limited because many people work here for a long time, so job openings in some positions are few.
