Pros

The affiliates really know their business. They are a forward thinking international company that buys and/or partners with local publishing houses. These are kept largely in tact as far as organization and culture.

Cons

The entire operations department seems to exist to do as little work in house as possible. The software development team is a revolving door. Every employee is sold upon the idea of reducing outsourcing in favor of in house development, but the reality is that there is no motivation to take on any risk.

Advice to Management

Clean house of the entire management chain of the ops department. No one in the current chain is even remotely interested in saving the corporation money or improving any processes.

    Pros

    The resort itself amazing. Management committed to well thought out master plan, and the end result deserves every bit of the press it's received.

    Cons

    With all the recent growth has come some growing pains. With the amenities largely finished, and the number of guests increasing, it's more important than ever to be sure the Guest Services is functioning as well as possible.

    Advice to Management

    I think the distance makes it difficult. Continue to stay involved in the details, and be sure to get the full, unfiltered story.

    Rancho Santana has been a fantastic project to which a handful of people from various parts of the Agora organization have been able to contribute. However, the ranch is not an Agora company itself... More
