    Pros

    Very caring about their employee's growth and development. Strong corporate vision and mission. Passionate about the industry and the impact that can be made on the course level. Extremely strong regional managers

    Cons

    There are a lot of new initiatives that come out from the support office and at times these become irrelevant as the season progresses. Simplify the beginning of the year goals and resources and dedicate their use during the year.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your employees and "ACE" their work experience

    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

    I have been fortunate enough to work for BCG for 6 years and the are a progressive supportive company that is on the cutting edge of the golf industry. The friendships and enjoyable work enviornment along with corporate support afford me the autonomy to succeed.

    Cons

    I often work more hours during the summer months but that does afford me more time off in the winter
