    I worked at The Trump Organization full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good resume booster, after working there you can pretty much work anywhere

    Cons

    Everyone is under paid and over worked, There is not sense of community at headquarters, and everyone is very high strung

    Advice to Management

    Build a sense of community, add more staffing and pay people what they deserve!

    Pros

    great resume builder, extreme expose if using this opportunity to better your career. the only thing to use this company for is to give your career a kick start. overall turnover for every position is about 1 year.

    Cons

    - when its busy, its BUSY. When its slow.. you can literally watch Netflix at your desk.
    - Zero upwards mobility
    - Very small salary (they know people will want to work for them for the name, and use it to their advantage). Starting salary is as low as $35,000 even when you're working directly under the President
    - terrible benefits, there are no perks at all, overall very disappointing experience and wouldn't recommend it to anyone i know

    I worked at The Trump Organization full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great learning experience and had the pleasure of working for some great people. 9-5 type of environment unless work needed to be completed.

    Cons

    No upward movement. Education was discouraged. No HR in the office so upper management treated employees as they pleased. Too much playing politics. Race was a big issue in the corporate office. Taking time off was frowned on. It was all about who you knew not what you knew. Health benefits were good but it didn't help that CEO and CFO had access to see what type of medical procedure or visit you were doing.

    Advice to Management

    Allow career paths for your staff.

    my advice is to make time to say good job or create advancement for people to come up with company and pay raises could be nice
