I have been working at MGM Resorts International full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Working at MGM resorts is a very fast paced and unique environment. The corporate environment is much different then normal corporate America. The positions have oversight of some of the worlds largest resorts in the world.

Cons

One of the downsides that you have to get used to is that directions can change on a daily basis. It could make managing projects very challenging.

Advice to Management

Let department management be more involved in hiring process for new positions. HR does not always understand the specific jobs or needs of departments and the hiring process can get bogged down because of this. A lot of unqualified applicants get through the filtering process because of this lack of knowledge.

    I have been working at MGM Resorts International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing health benefits with great service! Company just announced we have unlimited vacation policy! Awesome for newer employees! Great employee dining room! Nice perks--free or low cost show tickets, etc.

    Cons

    High expectations with very little compensation. You get what you pay for so the talent pool is not that strong. Long hours. Lots of bureaucracy. Expect you to get things done with out the appropriate budget. People come work here for a little experience, then leave to another company for much higher pay.

    Advice to Management

    Get the compensation in line! We are under valuing positions.

    I worked at MGM Resorts International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Well established brand which is good for your resume if you have a profession (i.e. aren't a dealer or cocktail). A diverse environment which allows you to experience many aspects of business including finance, retail, restaurant, casino, hospitality, and f&b all in one.

    Cons

    Lack of innovation Outsources it resources to it's detriment (such as IT) Plays it safe in the industry. Extremely political Pay is well below the industry average

    Advice to Management

    Work smarter not harder and stop laying off your most intelligent resources like an indifferent corporate machine (I left by my own accord, others didn't have that insight). Also, stop following Sands and Wynn. Innovation is not achieved through imitation.
