    Pros

    The money was really good. Then when it gets bad it does so fast.

    Cons

    Casino working means you are just a number. The cameras are there just to see who is up to what and not to help if they can. Upper management are clueless in the area of nightlife in this area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I liked all my namagers, but we got bought out by another company. Nobody here cares what the ideas of the employees are.

    Pros

    Hard rock can be a fun place to work. You are allowed for the most part to be yourself. Guests can be fun. Music is good.

    Cons

    There tends to be favoritism between managers from upper management. Not always treated fairly.
    No real room for advancing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Being honest and fair with your team will keep the company from such a turn over rate.

    Pros

    The company culture is great! There is strong brand recognition and it is a fun place to work. The location of the hotel is ideal on the magnificent mile. For people who use public transportation - it is easy to access. The hotel has a really good benefit package.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of turnover in management - but it seems to have stabilized lately. There are not a lot of options for personal growth because the owners only have one hotel.

    Pros

    Music, lifelong friends, and good money!

    Cons

    Management inconsistency
    Promotes slackers
    30 hrs min for benefits
    Use to be the anti-establishment but now is rediculously corporate.
    The food is so unhealthy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote loyal, hardworking employees instead of slackers.
