    Pros

    Property was beautiful and well maintained.

    Cons

    Started on the wrong foot, being run as a resort rather than a casino.

    Advice to Management

    Don't bring in someone from Disney to run an Atlantic City property.

    Pros

    The best part of working there is being a part of something new and big! The whole business was able to learn and grow together as a team.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges are being on time and getting changed and ready by the time your shift starts. Latenesses accumulate and you get write ups.

    Advice to Management

    Just do your job and follow the rules and everything will work out. The rules are simple.

    Low pay, absolutely ridiculous benefits. No communication between departments. Bad check in process and terrible layout of the building

    Pros

    While the corporate level executives were something of a farce, the departmental leadership was stellar. In fact, once the property was scheduled to be closed, the Revel became a wonderful place to work. All the "vision statements", "mission", ridiculous corporate buzzwords and pretentious business school BS were tossed in the garbage (where they belong). People that didn't like their job quit. What remained was a group of people who loved their jobs, loved the property and believed in doing good work for good works sake.

    Cons

    The building itself was the biggest challenge. Horribly shoddy workmanship and unfinished construction was one of the diseases that crippled the Revel. Compounded with the lack of competent top level leadership, the property was doomed from day one.

    Advice to Management

    Departmental management was top notch. The corporate level executives only cared about shuttering the property and collecting their undeserved cash bonuses. Advice to them? Grab your bottom lip carefully. Slowly pull it up over the top of your head. Now swallow.
