    I have been working at Villas of Grand Cypress as a contractor for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Free lunch. Fantastic coworkers. Excellent clientele. Free golf lessons.

    Cons

    Attendance policy is bizarre. Harder than Walt Disney World no lie! Do not expect to stay at a hotel for any good discounted rate. No room for corporate growth or career development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff and employees more. Trust them. Stop making minor league rules for expert workers. Employee picnics and Christmas parties should not be historic relics. Why not treat your employees as fellow humans.

    Overall a decent place to work; however, don't ever expect to move up here as an hourly employee.

    Pros

    All Employees that are hourly, non management are Fantastic, Caring hospitable People. They are good people to work with in a 24/7 365 resort. Great travel benefits. Golf Course is gorgeous and available for employees too.

    Cons

    Very difficult to grow within the original Grand Cypress family. Benchmark Management doesn't see that it is time to move into this century with a younger generation to re-build the Villas reputation for luxury and grandeur.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that in this day and age that your employees cannot live on very low wages.
