    A choice of Surface line hardware for software development would be nice.

    I have been working at GolfNow full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are very few companies that will work with you and your life. Given that you deliver on your work and always put your best foot forward for the company and it's employees management will treat you great.

    Cons

    I do have concerns of advancement within the company but the same concern can be found in many other businesses. Sometimes you have to play the waiting game for the position you want to open.

    I worked at GolfNow full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I worked at golfnow for over 4 years and my coworkers and the company culture were awesome. It’s a great place to start your career after college as you are given so many opportunities and management is always trying to make the job better.

    Cons

    If you don’t want to be in sales, there aren’t many opportunities for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your employees and striving to make it a great work environment - it’s rare and appreciated.

    Pros

    Opinions are heard. Company is growing. Atmosphere is great. Work life balance is encouraged. Vacation is generous. Benefits can't be beat. Work is valued.

    Start up atmosphere which makes the HR hiring process move somewhat slowly.

    Advice to Management

    Take employee referrals more often.

    I worked at GolfNow full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Your peers (everyone their also hates their job so you have a friend to vent to) -Benefits

    Cons

    -Literally everything else. Everyday at Member Cares is is worst than the last. Constant crazy call volume and management will be on you if you take too many breaks. Almost every caller is an upset customer because the GolfNow website SUCKS and NEVER is working so all of the thousand+ people who are trying to use the website will call the call center yelling and upset. It's stressful and to add to that stress... management has mandatory overtime hours. They do not care for the well being of the agents. -The Team "Leads" are always are their high horse and make sure that you that you feel like you're beneath them -Promotions within the department are impossible unless you and the supervisors/managers are personal friends which is why everyone either leaves the company or transfers to a different department -The pay is no where near good enough to deal with stress from both customers AND management

    Advice to Management

    There is a reason why the turnover rate is high. The job is STRESSFUL. Dealing with angry golfers all day who call us degrading names gets old after a while. Mandatory overtime isn't the answer for high call volume. You're just adding more stress on everyone and that's not the way to run a business. Not to mention you are DESTROYING employee moral, which again isn't good for business or numbers. Stop adding new... businesses until you get your main focus (Golfnow) fixed. Speak to the proper departments and get the GolfNow website fixed and the Golfpass promotion working properly for customers so they get what they were promised and make everyone's life easier. The lack of communication is ridiculous.

    Pros

    Huge business growth potential and a fun place to work.

    No room for growth. Sending emails, posting on social and review responses for golf courses - that's your job...

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to force culture on the team, let it organically happen.
