Featured Review

Current Employee - Front End Developer

I have been working at Red Ventures full-time for more than a year

Pros

Modern tech stacks Tons of opportunities to learn and grow Opportunities to give back Flexible schedule Great benefits Great culture Great work/life balance There are an infinite... number of highly intelligent people that work at Red Ventures, it creates a great atmosphere to cultivate learning, and growth. the discounts on food are great too ;)

Cons

Before Covid19 working remotely was largely not an option for most employees, I hope that will now be revisited, as I believe it is the only part of the culture at RV that could see us lose some... really good talent if this does not change. If you're uncomfortable with change this might not be the best place for you; things change quickly, and you will be pushed to get out of your comfort zone, I personally worked on three teams, and sat at five different desks in my first year.

Advice to Management

Continue to be genuine, honest, transparent, and listen to your employees. Also thank you!

Former Employee - Lead

I worked at Carowinds part-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Free entry into the park, discounts, some incentives

Cons

Low pay, cronyism, favoritism, managers/supervisors push political views on employees and if you don't agree you're alienated, guests are allowed to treat employees like dirt

Advice to Management

Better training for managers and supervisors. Don't allow spouses or significant others to work directly together. Keep politics and political views out of how management decides who they like and... who are no longer useful. Utilize and listen to experienced employees instead of tossing them out like yesterday's garbage. Yes all of these things happen at this park.
