    Pros

    Troon offers great benefits, but they don't come cheap.

    Cons

    Corporate could care less if you have an excellent, long-standing relationship with Troon. They give no priority with job transfers at all, however, yet they claim to do so. They are happy managing clubs from afar, but when an issue arises, they storm in with guns blazing before actually speaking with anyone to resolve any issues. No balls either when it comes to standing up to rude, unreasonable guests who treat staff like loser lowlifes.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up for your team always!!

    Pros

    I was fortunate to have some really good and caring bosses while I worked for Troon. I started with the company in college and my boss helped me get a good job once I graduated. I was actually offered 3 different positions (all in different states). I worked for Troon for 5 1/2 years. The company's managers and upper level executives seem to care about their employees and want to help them advance. Overall, I had a great experience despite one club and one boss (same job) that didn't work out so well.

    Cons

    These cons are more pertaining to the golf business not so much Troon specific - the pay is lower than an equivalent job outside the golf/sports industry and you typically have to be willing to move to move up.

    Advice to Management

    It's been a few years since I worked for the company, but based on my experience I would say keep doing what you're doing!
