I have had a long and very satisfying career at Pebble Beach Company. You work hard, but here are many benefits.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsBeautiful 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.

ConsWork 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great experience soured by politics and grumpy employees

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Pebble Beach

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

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

Advice to Senior ManagementGet off your high horse

Poor Pebble Beach...

Retail (Former Employee)
Pebble Beach, CA

I worked at Pebble Beach full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat scenery if you are out and about on the property. Stuck in an office not so great.

Advice to Senior ManagementShare the wealth guys!

Advice to Senior ManagementGive more hours to already hired employees and not hire a bunch of people who will have to compete for hours.

So far, so good. Placement at internships end is questionable but I've so enjoyed my experience.

Intern (Former Employee)
Pebble Beach, CA

I worked at Pebble Beach

ProsGreat benefits are available to all full time employees and their families
The location is unbeatable and the scenery is breathtaking
The employees are generally happy and warm

ConsWorking in the Del Monte Forrest makes your job location a bit isolated, it limits ones ability to leave for lunch breaks and the dining hall, though complimentary, isn't very healthy

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide interns with more benefits than what is currently offered. Interns who have four to six month stays can't effect the system so much that golf at Pebble or a trip to the doctor's office shouldn't be provided and many of us (being young) don't have health coverage of our own.

Disorganized

Security Officer (Current Employee)
Pebble Beach, CA

I have been working at Pebble Beach

ProsGreat health benefits and golf perks. Employee discounts for merchandise and food at restaurants. Everybody is very friendly and seem to appreciate their jobs.

ConsLack of proper supervision and training for new employees. No formal training book to check off as you go. Some employees have created their own forms that are not known/approved by the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementCheck out what the middle/lower management is doing. Make sure your aren't opening yourselves up for a big liability from negligent training practices.
