I have been working at MGM Grand Hotel

Pros

I worked in the back of house. Great company to work for, interesting industry from a business standpoint. Great starting point to get to Vegas if you so desire. People are amazing. You can't walk around with your head down there, always someone saying hi or asking you how your doing. Truly a pleasant environment. Free meals are a great plus.

Cons

Detroit.
Disconnect between some departments (especially audit and the rest of the company)
Free meals will make you fat quickly.
They bring in companies to sell things at lunch periodically which are supposedly "deals" but are actually much more expensive. With the added bonus of payroll deduction, the company is really hurting their employees, most of which are essentially blue collar workers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Community involvement and other "team building" activities are great but feel forced down your throat sometimes. Communicate useful information to employees. Stop offering things to sell in the lunch room! You're essentially making your employees spend their money because they think they're getting good deals.

    Pros

    The free food.... the pay is higher than most other employers. The benefits are a nice perk and better than you will find most other places in the area. The ability to recieve the discount in Vegas is a huge perk and the atmospher is also busy.

    Cons

    The free food... scheduling is bad and there is a lot of slackers. Ensure your job is done, but don't count on others to help you out, they wont and worse yet, they get away with it. Management lacks the proper way to evaluate employees. Time is valued over anything,not productive work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the way the company values people, hard work before ethnic

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    If you are a intermediate to senior technical worker expect a stable career with little growth
