    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at American Golf full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nice Golf atmosphere to work in

    Cons

    You sign a contract for a certain 'salary', Noone ever sees that number because its based on the parties you sell. So youll see half of that because their quotas are expectations the establishment will never achieve. They knowingly set the bar high so you will never attain that salary you were promised. Unprofessional upper management.

    Pros

    Some Members were nice. If you dont like rules, good. At Lomas there are none.

    Cons

    Discrimination, favoritism, out-dated hierarchy with "king-like managers" Managers did nothing to help the operation; rather, over-payed data entry clerks that make slats minute schedules for sub-ordinates that they would never help out or jump-in and help when they're swamped and need help desperately.
