The culture is a tough environment to work in when you have no career path to follow. It is a seasonal job so there is not much opportunity to achieve any long term goals.
Support from management
The management team is great but they are not given any incentives from the board of governors to keep employees year round.
In all of my time at the golf course, I never had any problems working with any other employees.
Good ol boys club where they are a little behind on supporting the women they do have on staff. Throughout the years I have heard several sexist remarks from members there.
No opportunity to climb any career ladders at all.
Overall compensation for your work
no salary and no benefits except for 3 or 4 employees.
There is only 3 or 4 employees who get benefits. Being that it is a seasonal job, no one else who works there gets any benefits. In my opinion, if i was given any benefits at all I would still be there.
I wouldn't be writing this review if I had anything nice to say.
No job is stable at Wanumetonomy Golf and Country Club.
Inclusive / Diverse
There is no consistency in decision making. The board of governors make all the decisions and they change positions every year. Instead of listening to employees who have been there for 10 plus years they make decisions on the fly in hopes of it working out.
Suggestions for improvement
- To maintain a consistent way of doing business there should be a mandatory 3 year stay on the board to prevent flip-flopping on major business decisions.
What I like about the company
Throughout my long tenure at the course, I really enjoyed working with the members and my co-workers. It was a job I was motivated to show up for and a job that really allowed you to be your true self. I was not one of the employees who were entitled benefits but I still stayed because I liked most of the people.
What I dislike about the company
As an employee for over 13 years, it's sad to see the direction the course has taken in the last 5 years. All major decisions are made by a board of people who switch positions every year. Instead of listening to management and senior employees, they make decisions based on the ideology of one person who wanted to be on the board because they were bullied in high school. It's a good old boys club where certain relationships and friendships are used to make important business decisions.
