    Pros

    The relationships developed with guests.

    Cons

    You're treated like and flat told in some cases that you are just another body. Employee incentives dwindled to almost nothing over the years. Bad benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show your employees more appreciation. CSA system is very flawed and you shouldn't use it as progressive discipline to get rid of good employees.

    Pros

    Good compensation, cheap insurance with a soso company, easy work, annual paid training, coworkers were easy to get along with

    Cons

    Weekly shifting schedules at the last minute (Saturday or Sunday for a Monday shift), no advancement, no equipment to work with or would take months to fix, Culinary UNION promotes people to be lazy(they work hard for 3 months and then it would take 2 years to build up a case to fire them)

    I worked at Caesars Entertainment full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work with a great teams of exceptionally smart and talented people. Unique to the casino industry.

    Cons

    Caesars routinely underestimates and undervalues its employees. They hire tremendously smart people and keep them in a box, tethered to old school traditional thinking. Exec management lives in a ivory tower and doesn't want to hear ideas because it could mean something is wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corp leadership needs to get out from behind the locked doors and interact with their teams.

    Pros

    Fun, laid back enviornment. People are there to have fun. Free food and great coworkers. Lots of loyal guests that become friends over time.

    Cons

    Hard to move up. Passing info upwards seems to go into a black hole at some properties. Too focused on nongaming. Need to go back to the basics. Fun to gamble and cheap food.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many things to list. Senior managment ruined gaming, instead they believe there is some miraculous shift that has occured. Machines too tight and comping in Vegas under a magnifine glass.

    I worked at Caesars Entertainment full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The largest - analyst company in America- they can tell you anything with regards to labor standards - you can quickly as a new leader learn - do to there being so few managers

    Cons

    They have forgotten How Phil S. made Harrah's so successful - Customers - labor is so reduced that lines with one employee are the norm and senior leadership at AC properties are unwilling or unable to articulate this to HQ in Vegas. Guest are going to go to NY and MA simply because of service and ( because they can)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Apollo should - move quickly at corporate level and eliminate CEO- he didnt get the job done and his leadership has cost a casino licence in MA his home state

    Summary

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Caesars Entertainment

    Pros

    - Generally good people and it is interesting to work in entertainment.
    - The company prizes data and analytics, so if you excel in this area AND want to work in entertainment, this is a great place to do it (an analytical mindset will not relegate you to just finance)

    Cons

    - Financial pressures of the company make for a bit of a "down" environment. The outlook for this company is not favorable over the next few years. Not for any particular fault of the day to day management of the company, but the debt burden is something that can't be sidestepped.

  9.  

    Promotions and raises given willy-nilly, if at all

    I worked at Caesars Entertainment full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Benefits 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.

    I have been working at Caesars Entertainment full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Reorganize 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.
