    I have been working at Bluegreen Vacations full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for several of Bluegreen's competitors and I can tell you that Bluegreen blows them out of the water in regards to compensation, benefits, opportunities for advancement, and the treatment of their employees. I cannot see myself working anywhere else. If you are looking for a hospitality company where you can grow and develop into your full potential, Bluegreen is the perfect place!

    Cons

    Honestly, there is nothing I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    I have been working at Bluegreen Vacations full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have held many leadership roles at other brands. The vision, care for associates, owners and guests makes Bluegreen far and away the best. The Resort Operations leadership team is amazing. Senior leaders within the brand are invested in my success and are constantly challenging me and pushing me to be better. There is so much room for success, you know what is expected and are given the tools to get there. It is refreshing to work in an environment where ideas are vetted and accepted. There are several ideas they we have generated at my resort that are now brand standard. This is so refreshing because as we grow there will be continued opportunities to find creative and innovative ways to solve problems. It truly is a fantastic place to grown, learn, and work. I love my Bluegreen family and in the ever-changing world of hospitality I truly think I found my place.

    Cons

    Individual business units have little interaction and challenging communication. However, I have heard that senior leadership is aware of this challenge and are actively working to improve this communication and the partnership between sales & marketing and the resorts.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.
    Continue to find talented passionate individuals; explore their ideas and embrace change. Embrace innovation and help technology elevate services and our experiences for our customer.

    Pros

    Well organized company with great benefits and an employee first approach to business. I have had the opportunity to work at two properties within the company as well as participate in task force at three other properties. I have been blown away by their commitment to make us an industry leader within hospitality. I have worked with several other big name hospitality companies and Bluegreen is by far the most organized when it comes to standards and polices.

    Cons

    I would like to see the company expand its portfolio and start operating properties in the western part of the country. I have heard that we are looking to grow and I am excited to see where the next Bluegreen property is located.

    Pros

    Uniquely associate-centric, as in By Employees, For Employees! When we speak, management listens! And...if it’s right for the employees, it seems to be right for Bluegreen! Love this employee-directed attitude!

    Cons

    Hoping to jump on the travel and experience bandwagon a bit more, in order to connect better with our customers who enjoy regularly vacationing at one of Bluegreen’s resorts.
