    Pros

    I really love working here at Welk Resorts. Overall, the company is a very progressive, positive place to be! I feel acknowledged and rewarded for my accomplishments here. Although I am in the legal department, I interact frequently with other departments and everyone I deal with is professional and we are all working to obtain the same goals. This is probably one of the best corporate jobs I have had. I would highly recommend Welk Resorts as an employer of choice!

    Cons

    I really have no cons to mention.

    I have been working at Welk Resort Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Its a stable job to have while you look for something else. Employees do have a discounted room options but even those come with super restrictions. Good health benefits but only if your paying for yourself if you have a family TRUST ME you wont be able to afford it (and they call themselves a family owned company)

    Cons

    No career growth. Feels like promotions are given to people who have no clue in hell. Supposedly family oriented though we cant even bring our kids into work, not even a summer party for employees and their families. Already bad enough that we no longer have a xmas party. Company wont even pay for a department lunch outing to celebrate birthdays. Some department budgets are cut to the bone while others spend as they wish. The CEO is pretty much non-existant feels like he has no clue whats is going on in his company. Dress codes are ridiculous!

    Advice to Management

    Advice to Management is pointless.

    Pros

    Great benefits and management. Working at a resort getting to make people's dream vacations become reality puts a smile on my face!

    Cons

    It will get busy during key times like holidays and spring break. It can be a quick rush and then slow again. Using slower times to plan ahead is the key.

    Advice to Management

    Great communication is key to successful relationship building and growth within a company.
