    I Would Rather be Working for This Company Than Working With Anyone Else

    Middle Management (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat 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.

    ConsHard 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 Senior ManagementStay 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.
