Only Stayed for 2.5 months
Training Specialist (Former Employee) – Scottsdale, Arizona – July 29, 2015
I had realized on my 2nd day of work that I had made a huge mistake accepting a job offer at Troon Corporate. Wow, what a lasting impression already on my second day into the company. I observed one of the senior leaders making some very insensitive and offensive remarks during a leadership presentation to 450 people at an annual conference. I knew at that moment, this company was not the place for me.
As much as I appreciated my boss, and her boss, and my co-worker on my team, the department office the most unwelcoming experience at a job in my entire career.
There were even a couple of employees, in the same department, who made it their effort to barely make any communication with me the entire time I was there as well as approaching leadership, bypassing my own boss, with their "behind my back" thoughts of me, yet I did not let that affect my work performance.
Even though the company claims they are trying to be progressive it still has a "Good Ole Boy" feel to it and overall very uncomfortable work environment.
If it tells you anything, I left this job after 2.5 months without having a job in place...
There are some perks but in my situation, they absolutely did not outweigh the daily quirks!
Autonomy, staff get togethers, leaving early on Friday
Unfriendly co-workers, lack of connection from senior leadership, not many advancement opportunities at Corporate
