    I have been working at Turning Stone

    Pros

    Get exposure to all types of accounting. Most of finance is friendly. 1 hour paid lunch. Get to work with a wide range of people.

    Cons

    If you don't have a CPA there is no future for you. Long, long hours for salaried employees. 4 managers in less than a year due to turn over. After 10 years might as well start looking for a new job. Manage people that get paid more than me. Constant turn over guaranteed every 6-8 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to keep the people that have given the company 10-20 years of their life. What is the point in working for a company if there is no stability.

    I worked at Turning Stone

    Pros

    Pays slightly more than other jobs in the area, lunch can be cheap

    Cons

    Required political meetings, petty managers, huge gossip mill, getting in and out takes an extra half hour just to get to and from the parking lot, everything that goes with working at a casino

    Former Employee - Black Jack Dealer in Verona, NY

    I worked at Turning Stone full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    They have really great benefits-health insurance, 401k paid time off etc.-they are a large and prospering company even in this time of recession, are still growing, expanding and creating new jobs! In the 9 years that I worked there, they only had one set of lay-offs.

    Cons

    Open everyday even on holidays. Stopped giving annual raises about 4 or 5 years ago even though they are doing so well with this economy. Some of the upper management have no compassion for their employees and are not equipped to be understanding of their co-worker's personal needs. The business itself is a completely different breed of animal and is not for everyone, especially if you don't have a tough skin for casino life. Also, be prepared for things to change on a daily basis with no explanation why.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget where you came from. Most of you started out on the bottom rung and some of you forget to look down from time to time. Be more approachable and put into practice the things that you are preaching. Other than that, great job and thank you for the opportunities that I was given.

    I have been working at Turning Stone full-time

    Pros

    Other than benefits, there are truly none that I personally can speak of.

    Cons

    The "business" is run more like a high school and different departments leaders will try to keep employees in that department with false write ups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some new management who are actual professionals in the area of business and not just people fresh out of college. Raise your standards and I'm sure you could benefit from it.

    Pros

    Pay was good.
    Great people to work with and for.
    A variety of people.
    Able to switch days off with other people and since there are a lot of dealers and each shift it wasn't too hard to get what I needed.

    Cons

    Shifts are rigid in time start and out. Often you start of swing shift when you are new.
    The negativity of the guests starts to get to you after a while.
