Terrible Place for Analytics and/or Logic

Analyst (Former Employee)
Las Vegas, NV

I worked at Las Vegas Sands full-time for more than a year

ProsThe silver lining for this company is that they have the most up to day technology, they just never use it to its full potential so I kind of really doesn't matter. If you come from outside the company they will pay you a really high salary too. Plus if you want to go international in Gaming this is the best place to do it since they are the best internationally. Best benefits in town as well.

ConsThe place operates in a perpetual state of fear. The CEO micro manages everything and everyone is scared they could get fired if they rock the boat too much. Also promotions aren't ever really dependent on work output, just solely friends in high places. Also you almost never need proof to go with an idea which is why if you want an Analytics career your best to just get some experience here if you have to then just leave somewhere else.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop purging your HR department every other year and come up with a cohesive corporate structure. This still place operates a huge "mom and pop" operation and it's hurting moral and career growth.

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

No work life balance, 9 to 15 hour days, average of 55 hours monday through Friday plus work on weekends

IT Project Manager (Former Employee)
Las Vegas, NV

I worked at Las Vegas Sands

ProsGreat employee benefits for dental, vision and medical. 2 meals provided each day in employee dining facilities located on property.

Cons50 to 55 work week plus work on weekends is needed to accomplish the global projects due to the 15 hour time difference between the geographic regions. Senior IT leadership doesn't always use established PMO procedures. Project Managers are located in a 'cube farm' with very limited resources to conduct stkeholder meetings in an office, while there are other positions that never conduct conference calls and are taking up office space.

Advice to Senior ManagementFoster better two way communication with the stakeholders and those responsible for getting the jobs and projects accomplished. Current project management guidelines delay project completion by months. Provide office space to conduct meetings and conference calls

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
