    I worked at MGM Grand Hotel full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Everything! Benefits are second to none with this company. Best casino company to work for bar none. Would recommend them to anybody.

    Cons

    None REALLY! Everything is top notch with these guys. They know how to take care of their employees. I had to relocate is the only reason I left company.

    Free buffet lunch provided, along with good benefits, nice co-workers and supervisors.

    Reduce turn over and create positive atmosphere, get up to date on pay and managerial integrity.

    I have been working at MGM Grand Hotel full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Family attitude with ability for promotion from within. Management open to discuss topics and intake ideas. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Lots of politics and frequently we found ourselves reversing on ideas and/or policies based on the person sitting on the other side of the challenge. Making it difficult to know which policy applied on any given instance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consistency is key to any department. Regular meetings with boundaries and expectations for outcome. Consistent application of rules regardless of title and/or tenure.

    Former Employee - Human Resources Manager  in  Las Vegas, NV
    Former Employee - Human Resources Manager in Las Vegas, NV

    I worked at MGM Grand Hotel full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There is a high volume of cases, that are interesting and more complex. You have the opportunity to learn a lot in a short amount of time here. The size of the company allows you to do some large scale projects that you can't do elsewhere.

    Cons

    Compensation strategies for internal applicants is poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay internal talent competitively with the market - otherwise you risk continued high turnover of management positions, high recruitment costs & lose the benefits of internal knowledge.

    I have been working at MGM Grand Hotel full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Competitive salaries and benefits, PTOs

    Cons

    Politics, dishonesty, lack of work ethic

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your ways or go down. Some of the VP's have no ethic. I worked there for less than a year and had to deal with the post unprofessional team of people I have ever met. Backstabbing was encouraged everyday. Very disappointed experience. When I gave my notice, a closing interview was not even offered.

    Getting better

    Current Employee - Casino Dealer  in  Las Vegas, NV
    Current Employee - Casino Dealer in Las Vegas, NV

    I have been working at MGM Grand Hotel full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The property was on a slow decline for many years, now they are finally renovating it and putting the work into improving the customer experience.

    Cons

    This used to be the number one casino on the strip, now it's second rate. Many working conditions fall short of the top casinos - food in the EDR is low level, rest rooms are dirty, 401k match is low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask for ideas from the staff and give them recognition.
