    Current Employee - Middle Management

    Pros

    Great pay, beautiful venues and facilities. If you are a lover of gaming, retail, food, destinations that are breath taking and sports; than this is the company to work for. Great exposure to other units best practices through travel, conferences and conference calls.

    Cons

    Hard work, long hours but well worth the effort. You get what you give. Put in the work and you can be recognized for your dedication. Be prepared to not work a normal 9-5. Even in those positions that could be considered 9-5 flexibility is a must. You will work evenings and weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused on the future. Technology is growing and gaining momentum daily. Stay on or ahead of the growth to ensure guest service does not suffer.

    Pros

    Fun people to work with at least in the Guest Relations usher staff.
    Friendly staff throughout the building.
    Commitment to teamwork!
    Guest path is a great program!

    Cons

    the pay is only part time. Not much room for low level temporary employees to advance. But a great part time job!

    Allow for more advancement in the company for low level employees. More recognition programs for people who get overlooked who do a consistent good job.
