    Pros

    Good growth opportunities, possibility of moving between different properties in Las Vegas, PA, Macau and Singapore

    Cons

    Lot of slave drivers. No work life balance. There is always talk of work life balance, but that's just lip service.

    Pros

    The BEST BENEFITS on the strip! There is absolutely NO employee contribution at all regardless of the family size. This is because Sheldon Adelson spares no expense to keep the Union out! So enjoy the benefits

    Cons

    The IT Department is toxic, hostile and overly political. They repeatedly re-org and burn and churn through team members in order to give them shareholders the illusion of more revenue. They repeat the same vision with every new CTO/CIO. I've personally seen it done 3xs prior to my final resignation.

    Advice to Management

    Handle team members with care instead of treating people like a commodity


  6. My experience working for this employer is great, enlightening and a unique experience.

    Pros

    Generally it has been a positive experience working in the gaming industry with Sands at the Bethlehem location. Interaction with personnel at this location has been positive, however limited.

    Cons

    Communication between departments and in departments should be improved.
    This would improve overall efficiency, personnel morale and customer satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Make a more concerted effort to utilize talented individuals within the company.

    Pros

    Great colleagues and some really smart and talented employees. Very nice environment, excellent physical condition. Great tools, good systems. Paid health insurance is nice but quality of insurance is middle of the road.

    Cons

    Extremely top down executive culture, micromanaged from the top. Very difficult to try new things, too much second guessing and too many Monday morning quarterbacks. Extremely high turnover in more senior positions, either people can't stand it or they say the wrong thing. Dental/Eye Care are below standard although company paid.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the quality people who are no longer there. Don't kid yourself about the message that sends to all employees. You've lost or sent away very high quality, respected individuals. You've lost or sent away people who are head and shoulders above the strip.

    Pros

    Benefits are great, aircraft fleet and facilities are amazing, high employee moral over all, a great experience to have worked for this company.

    Cons

    High stress environment, lots of nights on call and working overtime from home, customer requests can come at very short notice making the job very challenging.

    Pros

    They try real hard to create a team member friendly environment. Great benefits.

    Cons

    It's in Las Vegas. Las Vegas is no place to live when raising a family.

    Pros

    There are some VERY good managers here who are good people and who try very hard to make it a great experience when there is so much stress to deal with. I would like to thank them now - they know who they are.
    Pay is pretty darn good.
    Training team is very good.
    Co-workers are usually really great and very little drama among the lower ranks.

    Cons

    The free healthcare is great but the provider itself is a joke. Prepare for 30 minute hold times and denied claims.
    Turnover in the executive ranks is ridiculous!!!!
    TM parking garage is sucking the life out of me. It takes FOREVER to get in and out.
    CEO is too controversial and way too political. He should just focus on running the company.
    ANCIENT technology in some areas.
    Terrible (and sometimes unidentifiable) cafeteria food.

    Advice to Management

    Stop firing all your executives and give us some stability! Upgrade the technology!
