- Southern Vacation Rentals14.Aug 2017
Large company with family-oriented culture behind it.
Support from management
Any manager is willing to listen to things I have suggestions on regarding the company.
Family-oriented company promotes large amounts of teamwork throughout the entire company.
Freedom to work independently
The autonomy is there and needs some work.
Very open communication with all employees in all locations.
Southern does a great job with equalizing the work/positions to all staff.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Southern is fair and friendly to everyone.
This is something Southern has started working on and it will be great.
Overall compensation for your work
The pay is good but maybe a new wage survey needs to be conducted against local businesses.
Office / Work Environment
Friendliness and promotes collaboration among staff.
I feel they are conscious about waste and reducing it.
If you are not a manager, you do not get disrupted after hours. If you are in management, you may be called in to assist with an issue after hours. Sometimes after hour calls are an inconvenience to home lives.
Southern has a great image and brand people look forward dealing with.
Southern does what it needs to in order for the company to grow, so I would say it has just as much job security as other companies like it.
Provides excellent accessibility to those of us that need it.
Southern does what it can to educate people on safety and making sure they are proactive with anything that has potential to be an issue before it arises.
I feel I am challenged everyday I go to work, which is why I go. I would not enjoy a job that does not challenge me.
Inclusive / Diverse
Southern does a great job of including everyone in everything; this is what makes the company work so well.
Suggestions for improvement
- If I could suggest anything, it would be to interact with staff at their levels more often instead of us coming to them or only showing face if there may be an issue.
What I like about the company
I like that Southern cares about its employees and listens to what we have to say.
What I dislike about the company
I feel Southern's PTO plan is basic and needs to be reviewed for enhancements.
