    I worked at Natural Retreats full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are decent as is the vacation time.

    Cons

    Don't expect a pay raise for your hard work. Excessive hours if you're on salary. Be forewarned! An immature reservations department that favors homes they like ignoring others and without effective sales leadership. Excessive hidden fee's to guests and high commission splits with homeowners. A CEO that has never been in the PM business, doesn't get out into the field or even address the field managers. Shameful! Working...

    Advice to Management

    Look within folks. You have VP's with NO real industry experience. A fishing guide? A reservation agent? An office supply manager? Your reservation agents do not receive effective training, and your results show it. Try following through, and lead by example. Hire INDUSTRY people that know what they are doing. Your ship is sinking.......

    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"
