    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.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Las Vegas Sands

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Las Vegas Sands full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    The employee benefits programs the company offers are the best I have seen in the Hotel/Casino industry.

    Medical/Dental/Vision/Life are given to each employee free of charge, and cover your entire family. There are additional options for extended life insurances, disability, a matching 401k, and even stock options for some positions.

    This company treats their employees very well, and offers training, and tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    As with every casino company there is a general lacking in days off and/or holidays in which you are automatically given. Being a 24/7 industry it can be hard sometimes to get the time off you would like with your family.Some of the salary ranges are not living up to the national averages, and could use a little "modernization".

    Awesome brand potential, high turn-over, horrible employee culture and benefits

    Pros

    The company pays stronger than other strip properties in an attempt to combat high turn-over and extremely challenging work environment.

    Cons

    Where to start. We will attempt to stick to the facts of our experience.

    The brand has amazing potential, but the current operating state is horrible and managed so poorly, its obvious it's all about the money and not about the employees.

    Due to poor traffic management it takes employees 60 minutes to and from the property unpaid to arrive and leave. Plan accordingly if you have children.

    15 minute Breaks. You will receive no 15 minute breaks unless you take up smoking.

    We received a new manager every 6 months and had to rebuild the relationships each time which was frustrating.

    No promotion opportunities.

    Company healthcare denies most claims and you have to call multiple times to get the issues resolved.

    There is onsite child care. Openings are rare. The price is higher than other providers for some reason.

    You will work a minimum 10 hour days, average 11 hour days. They work you to get the job done and if you dont like it they will let you know you can be easily replaced. Work and life balance are nonexistent.

    Upper Management and Executive Management consists of many highly political persons and turned every 6 months.

    Lunch Breaks. The 'free' food is consistently unidentifiable and many employees refuse to eat there after getting sick right after lunch time. You can also pay 12-15 per day for lunch on the property and it's quality will be fried, unhealthy and high questionable.

    To survive you must not say any other words other than 'yes'. The company thrives on 'yes' management, even if it means breaking protocols, compliance, rules, laws.

    The employee areas often are stacked with garbage and old food and thus smells horrible as you travel from work area to area.

    Your training will be doing your job. You will receive no structured training. And if you do not perform to unreasonable expectations you will be informed you will be replaced easily.

    Its obvious they are extremely talented at one thing, intaking volumes of new employees, and creatively separating employees.

    Could go on and on but you get the idea. Often we would shake our heads and not believe the level of gross incompetence occurring on all levels in many places in the company. There could be department isolated and happy but for the most part, talking with 100s of employees, the situation became very clear to anyone of reasonable mental competence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With issues described above it's overly obvious Executive Management IS the issue.

    Non-Executive Employees are treated very poorly and the numerous labor lawsuits continue to paint the picture that the Las Vegas Sands Corporation is not employee/team-member friendly and they continue to develop the company toward union involvement with the fashion they treat their employees.

    And yes, there are even people paid to review the above information so their 'brand' can be 'managed' and for 'security'. This review has already been flagged several times from the Sands so prospective employees doing research do not find this information.
