    I worked at Incline Village full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Quality facilities-not state of the art, but nice places to visit. Hardworking and helpful employees. Great health and retirement benefits.

    Cons

    Unjustified high opinion of itself. Little business sense. Direction changes daily at the whim of the residents. Wastes huge amounts of money every year on consultants and training but the status quo remains. Routinely repeats its mistakes over and over. Bad employee morale. Management is not interested in the problems of line-level employees. No loyalty or support. Not a place to learn anything. OK for a seasonal job but nothing longer.

    Advice to Management

    IVGID looses a lot of money every year so get over yourselves. Stop spending all of your time in meetings with each other and actually accomplish something by the end of the day. If you want the employees to step-up, lead by example and first do your job and do not pawn it off on your staff.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Incline Village (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friendly environment that promotes employees empowerment. Most of the people are like minded and focused on the goals of the district. District is taking a progressive stance on improvement of community and facilities.

    Cons

    Little room for growth professionally and finacially. Part time residents slow progress for community based on their individual wants instead of community needs.

    Advice to Management

    Be more visible to community and district departments. Take a more aggressive approach with the board for individual department needs. The board of directors need to stop wasting the districts time with repeat trouble makers and selfish individuals.


  5. "Good summer work, though pay could be better, and management are stiff"

    Pros

    A nice way to stay at Lake Tahoe for the summer.

    Cons

    The company (IVGID) does not honor dedication, and in several instances, have treated long-time employees as if they were new-hires. In particular, the management have little people-sense, are much too authoritative, and treat employees as if they were expendable.

    Advice to Management

    While I was working at the company, there was a palpable sense that the management and staff were enemies. Better communication would surely improve the situation. Also, a new director for Parks and Recreation should probably be sought.

    Pros

    Beautiful location, great facilities, good compensation, excellent benefit package, a variety of recreational facilites including beaches, golf course, ski area, skate board park, disc golf course

    Cons

    An elected Board of Trustees completely dysfunctional that panders to the needs of the vocal minority. They direct the Upper Management who is focused on doing whatever is necessary to remain employed. Lastly a vocal group both in front of and behind the scenes with sense of entitlement and pure self interest. 4 key staff defections in a six month time period. In corporate america that would tell someone there are issues. Not here, the board casually looks the other way. An example of the insanity of government at its finest!

    Advice to Management

    Set a course of action based on the needs of the entire community and follow it. Amend it if needed but have the courage to say no. Most of us are very happy with what we recieve. My concern is that because of your short sightedness and you will destroy the assets you are charged with protecting and eliminate the staff members that really care about service.
    You have already listened to your "community experts" at the golf courses. How has it worked? Don't destroy the ski hill or the recreation center the same way. Listen to the real experts you have on your staff.
