    I worked at Isle of Capri Casinos full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Direct management was friendly and understanding. Pay for the work was probably slighty above average

    Cons

    Inter-department communication is so bad it reaches hilarious levels, HR is laughably inefficient and the joke of the entire property, no idea if they even realize it as they are so incestuous as to not understand they have a role. People in management positions who care know that they will never be able to inact needed change because the corporate office has no interest in improving older properties and thus lose hope. Saw many people passed over for promotions for less qualified candidates who would leave the company at first opportunity after seeing how ambition is discouraged.
    The work environment actively breeds discontent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new job with a company that has an interest in something other than a year to year decline.

    Pros

    I love my boss

    Cons

    The challenge working there although support staff dont work within the casino they still require you too obtained your gaming license and if you have a problem with any of the gaming people there is no support from management or legal concerning the issue. So they will terminate you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice is that you lose alot of Good people due to rules and regulations of the gaming committee it would be great if you could work together with the employer..employee and legal system so you dont lose more money

    I worked at Isle of Capri Casinos full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome vacation time (if there is enough staffing to actually be approved), great employees (while they last)

    Cons

    There is terrible communications both inter-departmentally, as well as between departments. I've heard from employees in certain departments that they rarely get approved for time-off because they are short staffed. I was fired despite the fact that I had proof that I was allowed to go home by my direct supervisor, days later because my manager decided I didn't do it properly (she wasn't on shift at the time).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have an email system yet there is terrible communication. I was frequently called out for lacking motivation by supervisors I never worked more than 2-3 hours a week with, and despite the fact that I frequently far surpassed department goals, and applied for several promotions. Employee management should be more directly handled by supervisors that actually work with an employee.

    Pros

    Large company with excellent benefits. Many departments all working independently. Lunch and bus program with excellent compensation if you are in management.

    Cons

    Old management ideas, too inbred, if not part of the cool crowd you will be forced out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees ideas, and actually act on them.
