    I worked at The Bridgewater Club part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I started working here as a high school student and was paid $8.50 as a base salary. That did not include all the tips that I made working in the green jacket or driving the cart. The location and club house are absolutely beautiful, events were incredibly fun to work, staff quickly became some of my best friends, and they gave me all of the hours that I requested. Plus, from getting to know members, I ended up becoming a sitter for 3 families that paid me over $11 an hour!

    Cons

    Working holidays kind of stunk, but on the bright side, most holiday events didn't last long so we were back with our families quickly. I cannot honestly think of very many cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not change a thing! I really enjoyed working for you!

    Pros

    You will meet a lot of different type of people and have the opportunity to deal with different areas of the business.

    Cons

    The lack of consistency and talent at the club is low. There is a high employee turnover rate and not a high caliber of employees there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your lower level workers better, or deal with substandard service and care.

    I worked at The Bridgewater Club

    Pros

    You get to work outdoors. There are employee discounts on food and in the Pro Shop. Being recently built, the club and the golf course offer really nice facilities.

    Cons

    Upper management has no direction for employee growth. Rarely any raises. The club is ran by an outside consultant that has a main purpose to make money for the owners and the consulting firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have an employee handbook for all employees, not just certain employees. Mandate yearly job reviews for all employees. Have better documentation of employee performance and behavior.

    Pros

    Great starting wages
    Fun place to work
    VERY flexible with scheduling
    Solid fellow employees to be around
    Good flexibility with hours

    Cons

    Upper management has little to no contact with lower level employees
    Impossible to earn a raise
    Many employees aren't vetted well for work ethic
    Very little upward mobility

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make new employees feel a little more welcome. Training isn't the best at preparing employees to join the work force.

    Great place to start...

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Westfield, IN

    I worked at The Bridgewater Club

    Pros

    Very flexible work schedule
    Able to network with very successful members
    Dynamic workplace, consistently changing tasks
    Mid-level managers are VERY good

    Cons

    Work tends to be seasonal (much more in the summer)
    Very difficult to move up in the business
    Upper management has major disconnect with entry-level employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try a little harder to get to know the entry-level employees. Many issues/problems are not addressed because it's so difficult to have them raised to upper management.
