    Pros

    They promote from within and I know of several examples of excellent upward mobility. In that same vein, they are not afraid to terminate employees who just "don't get it". They want everyone to be on the same page of delivering excellent service to their members.

    Cons

    The pay is not the best, because they don't need to pay that much. People actually want to work here no matter what the pay is. Also, you must sign a Trump non-disclosure agreement.

    Advice to Management

    Under new management since 2015 and this GM actually knows how to run a upscale golf club. Keep up the good work.

    Be smarter about making decisions, and event planning. Pay the hard working employees what they deserve

    I worked at Trump Golf full-time

    Pros

    There are no pros to working with Trump Corp.

    Cons

    Poor management. No Advancement opportunities. Discrimination against you if you do not have a particular look for a specific job. Do work for the other managers whom cannot do the work for themselves and get no credit for it. Terrible benefits. No holiday bonus from company, they ask members for money and do not fairly distribute.

    Advice to Management

    Change management, promote from within not bring in people from your other clubs to fill positions in which they cannot manage to do.

    I worked at Trump Golf full-time

    Pros

    I worked at Trump National Doral (Miami) - Resort and golf courses are beautiful. Front-line Associates are warm and sincere.

    Cons

    I worked at Trump National Doral (Miami) - Senior leadership culture is hugely political and overall toxic. They spend more time scheming personnel moves (to move their friends into management positions) than they do getting actual work done. Performance is directly linked to how well you kiss-up to management. Any dissenting opinion will lead to discipline, or worse, dismissal without cause. Save yourself the frustration and look elsewhere for job opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    You should be ashamed of yourselves. If you spent half as much energy improving resort operations as you did trying to get rid of people, you would be a leader in the hospitality industry.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Trump Golf part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The staff and membership are like a big family. It is a beautiful and scenic place to work.

    Cons

    There are a few managers in which staff would report to, and at times they were not on the same page.

    Advice to Management

    Managers with differences of opinion in practices and policies can contribute to a confusing and drama-filled environment for employees. Having all of the managers on the same page would lead to a much more smoothly run staff.

    I worked at Trump Golf (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great environment. Got to play course for free. Defiantly suggest this to summer college students.

    Cons

    Long hours, had work, but still not that bad for a summer job. Earned a lot of money.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing, they seem to be doing quite well at managing the golf course. I was just doing it as a summer job so I was never truly invested that much.

    Horrible management
    No leadership or ownership
    No communication
