    I have been working at Natural Retreats full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Natural Retreats was the brainchild of an extraordinary entrepreneur. In a little under five years, the US division of the company grew more than 450%.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on engaging with staff more regularly. Even if you don't feel you have anything important to say, frequent communication gives Team Members the chance to see and hear you. It humanizes you - allowing staff to feel connected to the larger company and providing them with a forum which empowers them to develop the open, transparent communication for which you advocate.

    I have been working at Natural Retreats full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fun work environment and insane benefits. I have been at NR now for 4 months and have had a great experience getting settled with a new company in a new location. I consider my coworkers my friends and the leadership / management teams have shown great support and flexibility to help make my transition smooth. Casual office environment and focus on collective teamwork between departments.

    Cons

    Having to choose between so many awesome locations to work and vacation :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Keep listening to your employees and rewarding their efforts. The proof is in the pudding - You all lead by example and have fun doing it...It's easy to respect leaders who contribute at every level and measure success beyond just "The Numbers"
