    Promotions and raises given willy-nilly, if at all

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsLargest casino company with plenty of history and resources. Provide full range of benefits and have numerous opportunities throughout the country.

    ConsBenefits package is sub-par. Since going back to being a public company, dollars for salaries, benefits and other enticements have been cut or eliminated. "Star" (read: favored) employees get fast-tracked while others toil or get shuffled to less desirable positions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fun company to work for, bad leadership.

    Revenue Manager (Current Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    ProsThere is very good work/life balance. The company has so many layers and someone to do every little job. Working at Caesars compared to a typical hotel, you definitely can focus on your one specialized area. There are many perks to working for a big Las Vegas hotel including free shows, discounted meals, etc.

    ConsThe senior management leadership is horrible as can be seen by the inability to run a profitable business. This company has over 20 billion dollars in debt and has not turned a profit in over 5 years. It is just a matter of time before this company is completely restructured from top down.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReorganize now, before the debt collectors start calling. CEO makes over $20 million/year with salary and bonuses. What is the bonus for? They are losing money.

    This is a great company to gain experience in

    Cage Supervisor (Current Employee) Cleveland, OH

    ProsA fun fast paced environment.
    A lot of room for advancement.
    Great benefits.

    ConsBe prepared to work every holiday, and weekend, No one has off on Saturdays
    If you are feeling down you could be written up for not being upbeat.
    Cut-throat business.
    ALWAYS being on camera, even during break

    Advice to Senior ManagementBring more humanity to the lower levels. All of upper-management has off on the same days. This means meetings are always on certain days which leads to many people consistently working 6 days a week. Look at your busy days. Saturday's off are ok.

    Meh - Pros & Cons

    Dealer (Former Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    ProsDecent Ins., retirement & vacation program (comparable to other big names in town), have a free gym w/ classes just for CE staff, free cafeteria (ppl can complain all they want but free is free & it makes a difference to my $), can make some great friends, try to implement incentive programs in different depts to encourage camaraderie. I.E. - if you want to make changes or get involved, there are avenues to do that.

    ConsBecause it is a corporation there can be some ridiculous disconnect between upper mgmt. directives that are handed down & whether it's actually effective/efficient to enforce on the ground floor, some depts can have a very high school/mean girls route you have to learn to navigate. This company has millions of $ of debt, just built a ferris wheel on the strip (right, because the city definitely needs that) and then proceeded to propose a plan to its creditors to basically create $1.75 billion in new debt that will have longer maturity dates, with the proceeds used to pay the 2015 figure. Riiiiight.... that's a smart way to run a business. Nope. Nothin fishy goin on here...

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop talking. Create a program making it mandatory to have all upper & middle mgmt. do a ground floor job at least 1 day a year NOT with with the intent of doing a photo op/charity work but to keep your mouth shut & your eyes & ears open and learn & find ways to improve the job or dept. which in turn makes the company better.

    Not the best company I have worked for.

    National Sales Manager (Current Employee) Midwest City, OK

    ProsFriendly people on the surface. Good leadership.

    ConsCrazy crazy administrative duplication that does not allow sales people to sell. As long as you keep up with the administrative stuff, you are golden. If you sell, have appointments, and make your goals you could absolutely no way keep up administratively. Truly selling gets you in trouble.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFollow up! Focus on training and for goodness sakes, please implement better reporting so your sales people can sell.

    Working here was a great learning experience and allowed me to be hands on with things I normally wouldn't be able to.

    Poker Room Supervisor (Current Employee) Cleveland, OH

    ProsIts good money and they hire supervisors with little or no experience. This allows someone to enter a great career and get the tools one would need to grow and advance. A very action filled and fun job!

    ConsThe dealer Union caused a lot of headache and Leadership seems very scared to do anything to upset them, even at the expense of the Supervisors. Some leadership can be cliquey and this really can lead to the feeling of being under appreciated. They do not follow the Service Profit Chain very well.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of the people who have your back. I think giving more energize the supervisors would have had a trickle down effect and our front line would have better A scores. Be more open and transparent with us. We are adults, we can handle bad news. We just want you to respect us and be honest.

    What happened to job security?

    Casino Supervisor (Current Employee) Maricopa, AZ

    ProsA true leader in the casino industry. A fun and exciting work environment. Employees who care about their job and like to serve guests.

    ConsThis company is notorious for cutting positions of employees with long tenure. It is not a place where you can count on working until you retire. The hours are long for those on salary. The working conditions are smoky and loud. Employee effort is seldom noticed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementExamine your workforce. See your employees as people and not numbers on operating statements.

    Manager in Operations

    Manager In Operations (Current Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    ProsExposure to many interdisciplinary management styles and the opportunity of working with many different departments. This opportunity offered training in lean management methodologies, training, presentations, EEO policies, and managing union employees.

    ConsOpportunity for advancement was limited and unorganized. No clear guidelines for bonus structure.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate bonus structure for all individuals in management where applicable. Each manager should have documented goals listed for each fiscal year. Professional development involves more than just coming in for a paycheck.
