    Pros

    career opportunities, can relocate. great networking. problem solving. great upper management

    Cons

    Better/cheaper health care plan, no 401k matching opportunities, need to recognize Christmas and New Years Day even when they fall on Saturday or Sunday.

    Advice to Management

    we really don't need a company get together every year. make it every few years. make it regional so the travel is not a killer. I appreciate the gesture every year, but you can allocate those funds for management in different ways.

    I have been working at Billy Casper Golf full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    None, really. Worked as a groundskeeper for other courses before, total experience 4-5 years. As a groundskeeper you have to be there 5-1pm which i've always liked. It's good honest work that I've enjoyed, but at this particular course that BCG picked up in Orlando they don't appreciate it and view you as cheap unskilled labor. All this from a soon to be former employee.

    Cons

    Low wage, no appreciation, old equipment, make you jump through hoops for a raise, negative management attitude. Sad to say they show a disgrace by continuing to use Billy Casper's name after his death

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees - not just the ones that brown-nose you. Invest more money in your courses, if you can't then maybe you shouldn't be a golf course management company.

    I have been working at Billy Casper Golf full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company is awesome to work for and has the most room for advancement for anyone looking to get into Golf Management (I would know I worked for KemperSports & ClubCorp previously before joining the HERD!) They are also the leading management company when it comes to using technology to advance the golf industry- from their internet based portal and business communications getting to the right person at the right time makes our lives at the course level so much easier.

    Cons

    With the constant attempts to be the first and build the strongest platform in golf there are some growing pains for the General Managers having to learn new systems frequently and at times can be overwhelming, but the growing pains are necessary to be the industry leader

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to the Vision and continue building the greatest platform in golf!

    Pros

    BCG is the leader in golf course technology, marketing research, operational efficiencies, agronomic practices, environmental stewardship and client relations in the United States.

    Cons

    I can't think of anything except that I wish I played more golf. That is not the fault of BCG, it is just due to time constraints during a busy golf season.

    Advice to Management

    I have had the privilege of working for Billy Casper Golf for over 12 years!! I have been promoted several times within the company. I can attest that BCG is a great company to work for, not only as a PGA Golf Professional, but a business leader in my community. From the top of the company down, the culture of the company is of team and family. I am proud to be a member of the herd.

    Pros

    Free golf at all properties are great and the people you work with are fantastic. If it weren't for my teammates and people I work with, it would be very hard.

    Cons

    There is no path for advancement in the marketing department. The turnover rate is terrible too. They also do not give yearly bonuses or raises beyond 1% and it is hard to make a living off of the low salaries you are already given here. There are no opportunities for growth so the only way to move up is for you to leave. Management doesn't have your back either. It is also frowned upon to take a sick day and there is no trust at all.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your employees and take care of them - it goes as long way!

    Pros

    It's the golf industry, should be fun!

    Cons

    In the interview, I was promised a lot to get me in the door. Come to find out, it's all smoke and mirrors. Life inside is a self-made crisis for no good reason. Pay, benefits=bad. They'll give you free food on Wednesdays... yay? Upper management doesn't plan, they just tell you to "do". You can't do your best work because everything you do is rushed.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look around! People are miserable because of they way they are treated, the lack of fair compensation. This is not how you inspire people.
