Pros

Pay of salaried team members Management's stock options and bonuses Company's philanthropy and volunteerism Quality of most facilities Legacy of quality, customer service and giving back to community that was promoted by company's late founder

Cons

Job insecurity and instability Workload Unrealistic work expectations after major staff reductions Management's lack of candor and honesty about what's happening

Advice to Management

Team members aren't stupid; tell them what's going on. Don't avoid communicating just because you don't like delivering bad news or because you feel guilty because you're still doing good, but so many team members aren't. Quit "disappearing" team members; it's freaking the rest of us out.

    I have been working at Ameristar Casinos part-time

    Pros

    Meeting great people. Health benefits. Team dining room. Opportunity to work more than part-time hours.

    Cons

    Very small raises. Point system. Management favoritism. A lot of unnecessary changes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it stable. Too many changes within management. Try not to show favoritism so much. Also stick to what you say/propose, like backing up employees when making decisions with guests.
