    Pros

    Large corporation so it had great benefits. Also, lots of opportunities to advance and move to different accounts or properties.

    Large corporation so lots of rules and hurdles to jump through to get anything done. Also, not big on giving raises or bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bonuses and raises go a long way.

    Pros

    -Fun
    -Free food
    -You make good friends

    Cons

    -The management doesn't seem to care much about you personally or what's going on in your life.
    -They make it seem as if promotions are easy, but then they never help you work towards them
    -You rarely get scheduled (I worked 1 day a week the last month)
    -The management doesn't care about your schedule with school or other jobs, they schedule you when you aren't available and then get angry when you can't come in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to our workers. Care more. Stop being so rude all of the time.

    Pros

    Successful company. Industry leader. Potential for career growth and promotion.

    Casino industry is notorious for smaller salaries. Potential for burnout is high due to staffing cuts and having to take on the work of multiple employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate, communicate, communicate.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at MGM Resorts International

    Pros

    This is a large company within Las Vegas and you have access to an extraordinary amount of benefits at the properties. Except for Information Technology, the other departments seem to be very happy (accounting, Human Resources, etc). If you can last through your first year, there are lots of opportunity.

    Cons

    In the first four months of my employment, I have never heard the word "FIRE" so much. This is a department within the company that rules by fear and intimidation. Cover your behind should you choose to join this team. They seem to absolutely LOVE firing people. Very high turn over, the threat of termination will loom over your head everyday.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stabilize the company by having leadership actually train and develop employees rather than termination.
