I worked at Bacara Resort & Spa full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

They paid well for Santa Barbara. Collegues were nice people. It's a pretty place to go to work.

Cons

A ruthless, New York real-estate mentality. Ownership enjoyed being cruel and making employees uncomfortable.

    Pros

    Overall, Bacara was a nice place to work...the staff is for the most part, well polished and professional. Resort is gorgeous..

    Cons

    It can get very stressful on staff at some points due to guest/senior management requests and sometimes short/poor staffing. Run by a committee, which brings up the old saying: "too many cooks in the kitchen"

    Advice to Management

    Bacara should really go back to the days when there was a Resort Manager instead of a Board of Managers who take turns "being" the Resort Manager.

    Pros

    Excellent pay, great food in break room, beautiful location, friendly co-workers, laundry in-house so uniforms are always ready to go, and room for growth.

    Cons

    Not a lot of attention paid to time-off requests, very long hours, but other than that not a bad place to work.
