    I have been working at The Resort at Pelican Hill full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Beautiful Resort and fantastic views.

    Cons

    Terribly Micromanaged, no proper training and no employees skills assessment.
    I honestly don't understand how they managed to get #1 on Conde'.
    I had the impression that the Resort is managed day by day except certain departments such as Revenue and reservations were programming is a must.
    Employees who been there for too long are not keen to embrace changes and this will continue on the negative path .

    Advice to Management

    HR, aren't doing enough or they did not manage to speak loudly so the top management react correctly in order to improve.
    Top Management, most of your department managers have no experience in Luxury hotels/ resorts, is mediocrity your real target? It seems so.
    P.S The 2 days orientation were fantastic but after a week, I've immediately noticed that was only bubbles.

    I have been working at The Resort at Pelican Hill full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful location and for that reason a great place to go to work every day. Coworkers are friendly and easy to get along with. Pay is decent relative to the same job at other locations.

    Cons

    Extremely micromanaged. Very difficult to have your voice heard and therefore tough to stand out. Employees are very under appreciated. In an environment where a high level of customer service is expected, employees are not given enough decision making ability to resolve any issues that arise. Pass the buck mentality is encouraged - rather than accepting blame for issues as a whole resort there is a divisive attitude among not only individuals within a department, where everyone just tries to avoid blame, therefore people generally do not go the extra mile for the customer because they just try not to be noticed so they can go home for the day. Same attitude exists between departments. Blame for any misstep is always trying to be put on someone else and leads to very poor employee morale.
