    I worked at Beau Rivage Resorts part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    They are truly focused on giving the best service possible to their guests. They also realize that guest satisfaction happens when their employees are happy. They have tons of programs to see that their employees are happy and well taken care of.

    Cons

    In my department, there is only one way to get hired: on a temporary and part-time basis. That means that you do not get any insurance at all, no emergency health leave (which is why I had to quit), and no guarantees. Life is great once you're permanent full-time, but getting there leaves you open and vulnerable to a lot of unforeseen circumstances that could cost you a job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider allowing your temporary employees some sort of leave (even unpaid) in case of emergencies. It isn't particularly fair to make them leave their job because of something beyond their control.

    If you're not in the circle then you will never be promoted or even any chances

    I have been working at Beau Rivage Resorts full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great family benifits & lunch is provided

    Cons

    Unless your are best friends with management/directors or HR personnel there are no chances of promotion even if you qualify. I have put in for a few promotion opportunity & less qualified individual were hired & HR doesn't call to let you know a decision was made on the position. Instead you have to find out at a meeting when the new person announces what they do for the property. This company flaunts a lot to the media on voulnteering, diversity & opportunity but in reality its opposite.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have HR dept do their jobs ethically not based on who friends they are. post interview staff should call when they say they are about job offering. It's ashame that 6mts later a denial letter comes in the mail. And never hearing back from HR

    I worked at Beau Rivage Resorts full-time

    Pros

    One of the largest employers on the Gulf Coast. Lots of jobs, lots of variety. Offers the type of big company benefits that some lesser skilled or lower educated people in this market are not accustomed to. Friendly employees. Fast paced. Can advance through the corporate organization especially if willing to relocate.

    Cons

    For salaried professionals, compensation is somewhat lower than local market (but there are fewer comparable positions in the local area). Salaries are NOT competitive with industry standards, however. No merit increases or performance reviews -- very odd for a company of this size. Subpar PTO benefits... All employees (salaried professionals as well as hourly) must wait 12 months before receiving 1 week of vacation time. After two years, it becomes two weeks of PTO until the next bump up at 7 years. Again, some lower skilled workers for the local area find this to be great but most professionals who've worked in other large companies expect far better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Might be time for the CEO to move on. Been there since the post-Katrina reopening in 2006 and has done a good job, though fresh eyes might be needed.

    I worked at Beau Rivage Resorts full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great health benefits, competitive salary, great employees to work with, upper management seems to appreciate the staff, great perks and discounts

    Cons

    Because of the nature of the business, work schedules change often due to demands. The hours can be late and on weekends due to customer demand. This can make it difficult to plan as the schedule is sometimes not released until the Friday before the week starts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    George Corchis is extremely personable and makes every employee feel special. Middle to upper management should act more like George. Employees seem to get along well with each other, but middle management could take more responsibility.

    I have been working at Beau Rivage Resorts full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great culture, people want to work hard and give great guest service. MGM does a wonderful job of integrating organizational culture by driving employee engagement through philanthropy. Rather than the corporate mandatory fun, the company uses volunteerism and fundraising to bring employees together outside of the workplace...driving the social aspects that keep people working hard in a mundane and routine job.

    Cons

    Salary is low, turnover is high. Not in all jobs. Tipped positions are fine. Senior positions are fine. Entry to mid level salary and administrative back of house positions are too low to keep talented folks around long with a glass ceiling that is clearly visible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At times, process overrules productivity. Need to be willing to loosen the reins and let the team get the job done.

    Pros

    Fare wages, 401k, health insurance,

    Cons

    Being fare across the board when it comes to the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mr, Corchis, I know that you are a very busy person, but some of your management team are very abusive to you Heart of the House employees. The very employees who makes it happen everyday. I am aware that you have “Ask GEO”, but your Heart of the House employees are afraid of losing their job, getting written up, or of retaliation through reduced hours. Just before they reach 6 months without any prior discipline notice they will get one with the result that they can’t move into another department. I know there is technically no such thing as light duty, but check the schedules (orginal) you will find that employees favored by management get reassigned to less rigorous duty. It would be okay if everyone was treated fairly.

    Raise base entry salaries to attract more qualified entry level management.
