    I have been working at Turf Valley full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been working over 26 years at Turf Valley, I have seen many employees come and go. We have a lot of "be-backers", those who leave for greener pastures and find the pastures aren't always as green as Turf Valleys. Turf Valley provides a place for your very first job, your first job out of college, part-time work while you are still in school, It is a family-owned business that provides a learning environment, a place to grow, a place to feel at home. They care about their customers and they care about their team members.

    Cons

    I cannot think of any cons that would warrant mentioning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to engage the staff via training and employee betterment programs.

    I have been working at Turf Valley full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I have worked at Turf Valley for approximately 2 years and absolutely love it. The environment is friendly, almost like family. It is a good culture and there are opportunities to advance. There are several employee activities each year which are fun. We get different perks too, discounts on room, spa, golf.

    Cons

    There are some challenges with upgrades to the property but a lot of improvement has been made over the past couple of years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pete Mangione, General Manager, made it a point to know my name and speaks to me when he seems me. He takes pride in Turf Valley and you can definitely tell that he wants the employees to be happy while they work there. Otherwise, just continue to make improvements to the property.

    Managers are unbelievably stuck up and think the world revolves around them. I had a white stripe on my black shoes and was told I had to get new shoes or get fired

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get over yourselves and be reasonable

    Pros

    Company is very accomadating to personal needs. Company also makes a great effort towards providing employees with a healthy work enviroment.

    Cons

    Company is reluctant to promote from within. Limited advancement for entry level employment. Very reluctant towards innovation and new business practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To increase the profitability of the company management should incorporate new ways to generate interest. A broader social media influence and improving the advertising and marketing of events held.
