    I have been working at Natural Retreats full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Great people, good benefits, lots of potential for professional growth. Most of the older negative reviews on Glassdoor were accurate at the time, as there were a number of problems caused by the company's extremely rapid and somewhat chaotic growth.

    Cons

    There is a serious lack of documented policies and procedures, which becomes less excusable as the years pass.

    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"
