Approves of CEO

I have been working at Vegas.com full-time

Pros

*Great co-workers. *Fun and relaxed environment. *Still get nice perks like show comps. *Benefits are good and improving *Management made some good decisions recently on cuts that were made and in hiring a new CEO that has an excellent knowledge of the business (Jim Gibson is no longer the CEO, but is still with the company...nothing against him or his decisions, but it is good to have someone at the helm with more technical knowledge). They also have refined the focus of the business to the core competencies which has improved the bottom line.

Cons

The company is dependent on the economy, more specifically the Vegas tourism economy. This means it'll always be a roller coaster ride along with the economy.

Advice to Management

Don't forget what the core of this business will always be.

  1. At one time, it was a great place to work but once the ownership sucked the life out of it.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Vegas.com full-time

    Pros

    Most people there were great and everyone really got along well. Before ownership's involvement, the executive team and staff built a really great company.

    Cons

    The ownership gave 1,000 directions at once, made poor decisions based on what they "felt", couldn't decide what was important and when things went downhill brought in consultants to just cut the company off at the knees without ever taking any responsibility. Sad that a great place was taken apart by the owners.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company to an organization that could run it more effectively.


  2. A Fun, Casual Atmosphere Became One That's Sad

    Pros

    - You get to meet celebrities - You get to go to some shows - Halloween used to be fun

    Cons

    Management does not communicate anything to their staff and when they do it's confusing. People live in terror of losing their jobs every day. Any tiny rumor makes everyone scared. Management does not offer praise for a job well done. Many promises for no more layoffs, only to have more layoffs. Morale is very low and it seems like management doesn't know it. Everyone is afraid to form friendships because they don't want to lose that friend. No one trusts anyone else there.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more openly with staff and treat them like people. Tell them they're doing a good job. Reassure them that their jobs are not in jeopardy. Get some training so you can learn to deal with people.
