Needs lots of Improvements
Golf Grounds (Former Employee) –  Bradenton, FloridaAugust 22, 2015
They have nailed the lipstick approcach at making the compound look great when visitors come thru the gate. They are state of the art in many aspects of the company, but the pay is just barely above the poverty line in many departments, and they ask a lot of their employees! They are very good at cutting cost, and willing to do whatever they can to do it. They have employees bouncing back and forth from one department to another. Typical day at work is outdoors, and co-workers are great people. You bust our hump for peanuts, and don't expect a lucrative raise anytime soon. If you're trying to make a living this is not the place to work.
Pros
Seeing all the wildlife.
Cons
Low Pay

You Name It (Current Employee) –  Bradenton, FLJanuary 12, 2016
Even think about working here. The pay and the people are a reason not to consider working at the multimillion dollar business/academy that pays pennies and hourly. The salary is a joke and quite embarrassing.
Pros
A few free shirts
Cons
Money, People, Money

Best place to work in Bradenton
Mailman (Current Employee) –  Bradenton, FLJanuary 19, 2016
Great place to work, enjoy working with athletes from around the world and is one of the largest companies in Manatee County, mail is starting to get a little overwhelming since campus has grown from 200 students to 1500 students and athletes that live on campus. I do anywhere from 120 to 500 packages a day and 600 letters that I must log in and sort out. Great vacation time of 26 days a year and can schedule any time off to visit daughter in college.
Pros
can get job done in 4 hours, so have time to ship out packages
Cons
lots of lifting

Exciting atmosphere, great employees, decision making issues
Hospitality Associate (Current Employee) –  Bradenton, FLSeptember 4, 2015
IMG Academy is a great organization from the outside looking in, however despite the amazing work environment, and the incredible staff and employees, the overall decision making process by upper management needs some review.

Fun Place to Work but Still Has Drawbacks
Manager (Current Employee) –  Bradenton, FLAugust 14, 2014
IMG Academy is a fast-paced work environment with great people who continuously bust their hump on a daily basis but receive very little credit for their hard work. Management has somewhat of an inflated image of themselves and believes that they are reason for the continued success when in all actuality the backbone of the Academy are the people in the "trenches."
Pros
great benefits
Cons
pay

Special Teams Coordinator & TE Coach (Current Employee) –  Bradenton, FLAugust 27, 2015
Coaching Elite High School Football Players. IMG is a First Class Business for Training high school - pro athletes. IMG's boarding school gives each athlete the college experience but at the high school level so that each student athlete is more prepared for the next level.

Really good atmosphere for athletic minded employees
Summer Basketball Coach (Current Employee) –  Bradenton, FLJuly 22, 2013
if you are passionate about sports this is a great place to work. I enjoy working here, however my management could be a lot more organized. Also, the worker compensation isn't the best. Other than that its a great environment with plenty opportunities to meet great people.

Great Parent company, but thats it
Graphic Designer (Former Employee) –  Bradenton, flFebruary 9, 2015
They sell themselves as a team orientated workplace, but that's not the case at all. You can never make a mistake and you can never ask for help. I worked in a department that was all girls, and it was like working in a sorority house. They are very childish and unprofessional. And the management looks past it, and sometimes bring their personal problems to the workplace. Not recommended
Cons
everything

A great place for kids to focus on their future
PM Supervisor for Jr. Dining (Current Employee) –  Bradenton, FLMarch 20, 2015
IMG is a nice place to work at. There needs to be better way to communicate between departments. Employees work hard. Kids are friendly and polite. There are updates going on that will help IMG become a well known place.

Marketing Intern (Former Employee) –  Bradenton, FLJanuary 16, 2013
Nothing special a/b typical day at work: Arrive slightly before 9am and leave shortly after 5pm. I learned all about SEO and SEM. HR team seems to know how to hire the right people. Hardest part of job was learning many new strategies on how to get more people to come to IMG Academy. Most enjoyable part of working at IMG Academy was the well known athletes that trained down there.
