fringe benefits such as discounts
Ability to advance quickly
Limited to no micro-management
Fun colleagues
Great exposure to corporate America

Poor leadership. "Winning Ways" are supposed to be guidelines to live by but are not followed by anyone. Lots of unnecessary busy work and paper trails to justify jobs.

Advice to Management

Don't punish employees who complete the employee survey honestly by giving them more busy work.

    Pros

    It's better than being un-employed. Most of the employees are doing the best that they know how, in the face of constant staff cut-backs and inane management decisions that usually do little to improve the guest's resort experience and are mainly are made to make the manager(s) appear more valuable to their boss. Benefits offered.

    Cons

    Constant job description & procedure inconsistencies. Horrible communication practices. Overt favortism shown in hiring, scheduling and promotion. There is a lack of standards awareness and enforcement resort-wide. Sloppy HR practices and enforcement. Some Upper management expects to be treated like royalty.
    Free meals offered are often inedible and make many employees ill.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize, value and treat your employees like professionals. Listen to your staff's feedback and act accordingly--They have daily direct contact with the guests and are your best source of timely feedback and suggestions. Establish and enforce standard procedures in all departments, because most of us want to follow the rules, even if our manager's do not. Clean up the sloppy HR department procedures. Actually follow The Winning Ways yourselves.
