    Mostly positive since it bought out Ameristar and sale commenced in 2013

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIt's a fun environment and most people appear to be happy in their jobs.

    ConsLike any other company, it has misguided priorities in how it compensates certain employees.

    Pinnacle Good place to work, GREAT pay

    Business Analyst (Current Employee)
    Las Vegas, NV

    ProsVery competitive pay, fair work environment, overall it is a good experience and a good place to work

    ConsNot much to say here. If they didn't pay so much I might have a complaint. Pinnacle pays quite well which makes up for any deficiencies elsewhere. Most business analysts here make in six figures.

    Bring fun back to work and your team will follow

    Casino Supervisor (Current Employee)
    Council Bluffs, IA

    ProsThere are a lot of great people to work with that make the job enjoyable. Some of the management team are very compassionate towards their team members.

    ConsThe few poor managers ruin the job for everyone else with their favoritism. Benefits are mediocre compared to the time away from family and friends.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Boomtown: unorganized, unmotivated team, fire all policy to save a buck despite yearly revenues of $120mil+

    Operational Excellence Manager (Former Employee)
    Harvey, LA

    ProsOpportunities to move to different properties and the merger with Ameristar should help with openings.

    ConsLack of support, uneasiness with massive lay-offs, lack of communication and like most hospitality or 24hr businesses, hours can be tough.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBoomtown used to be a very tight group and by trying to make the property something it is not you are destroying the culture and making less money.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great Environment, No Advancement Opportunities

    Dealer (Former Employee)
    Saint Louis, MO

    ProsThe casino itself is modern, spacious and kept very clean. The EDR and other break areas are very nice. For the most part the supervisors are friendly and the overall employee base is friendly on the highest level. Reasonable base pay and toke rate.

    ConsAdvancement seems to have ground to a halt on the lower levels. It would take years of attrition to make it to full time status without a jump to dual-rate floor. D/R floors almost always are suited up as they run their supervision staffing razor thin. Company videos of people dancing around at work that play on the monitors in the employee areas can't quiet the murmurs of the over worked salaried supervisors.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more supervisors and give them training when you do so. The training for dual-rate floors is nonexistent beyond computer tests. Make employee retention a priority.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ProsGreat co-workers! Easy job. Free water & soda.

    ConsBenefits, pay, incompetent upper management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhy even bother with surveys if you are unwilling to make any changes. Just a waste of time.
