I worked at MGM Resorts International full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Benefits are good, fairly low out of pocket expenses if you pick the right plan. Decent training programs. Company does many positive things or the community.

Cons

The pay is lower than what other comparable companies pay and you will have better luck hitting the lottery than getting a raise with this company. They will pay someone from outside if the company top dollar and have no relationship with that person to begin with, but if you work for the company, you will be offered a small raise and they will act like you are being done a favor even if you are high 10+ year performer.

It's all white dude at the "C" level. Time to walk the diversity talk and have some very senior execs reflect more of their workforce. Don't tell you me you are all about diversity and inclusion and then have all white males running the company.

The politics are horrible. It's all about how much booty you can kiss to get ahead.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More diversity at the most senior levels and pay what the industry pays.

    I worked at MGM Resorts International as a contractor

    Pros

    Opportunity to work within a casino enteratinment company.

    Cons

    Tenure was during the downturn in the economy. Hiring freeze was inacted which limited any opportunity for hiring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A completely outsourced staff for IT is not an approach for long term success.

    Great training ground if you don't mind the low pay, heavy politics, and severe lack of diversity in leadership.

    I worked at MGM Resorts International full-time

    Pros

    Great place to train young and seasoned professionals in the way of politics, business, and what not to do. Great health benefits package.

    Cons

    Way too political, to the point that it greatly hinders the work. The compensation is terrible and yet those in charge don't seem interested in paying their people fairly. Diversity at this company is a joke. If you're a White or maybe even Asian guy, you're golden. Anything else, you have to claw even harder to succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees what they're worth and cut down on all the politics. Formulate an actual diversity strategy that is about more than silly video clips or overly emotional workshops that barely touch the issues of diversity .
