Pros

When I started with St. Joe they were one of the top employers in the nation. Great 401k, pension, health, time off. Stock values where high, money was plentiful for projects. The feel of a perfect little communitiy was ever present.

Cons

Stock value dropped, hostile takeovers in upper management, the Disney inspired ruse was soon shattered by lack of capital. The housing market burst and it was over... I saw talented employees released without a second thought, it was everyone for themselves in the end.

Advice to Management

If you own 3% of a State (estimated holdings of St. Joe), that does not mean you control the market. I was but a low person on the Joe "food chain", yet I knew going in that a couple barely making 75K a year should not be in a 500k home. Advice to Management? Stop thinking you control the market and believing you own BS. If someone had been paying attention to the market and not what Joe perported the market to be I would imagine the company would be in much better shape.

    I worked at St. Joe full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Management constantly changing. They do not have a clear game plan. A Board of Directors that employees don't see or meet calls the shots and they don't know average employees.

    Cons

    Top Management makes very good money. Regular employees do not. There is very little room for advancement and almost no chance of raises

    Advice to Management

    Act as a Team. Have a clear game plan for the future so employees aren't in limbo as to what they need to be doing.
