    Pros

    Company cares about employees that work hard
    If you do well, you're rewarded (sometimes it take a while but it will happen)
    Still fun - amazing people to work with
    After a while, it's not just a place to work but a 2nd home

    Cons

    The last few years have been rough
    We lost morale with layoffs and constant management changes

    Advice to Management

    If you want to see the company grow out of the hole that we've been dug into, let the people that know the business help.

    Pros

    * The people who work here are incredible.
    * Fun and challenging work environment.
    * Used to be true innovators in the Travel and Entertainment distribution business.

    Cons

    * There really is no strategy. Just listing from one thing to another.
    * Hard to say where future growth will come from without better direction.

    Advice to Management

    Create a strategy for success that fits with core competencies and objectives and express this to AT LEAST the key managers if not the whole company.

    Pros

    *Great co-workers.
    *Fun and relaxed environment.
    *Still get nice perks like show comps.
    *Benefits are good and improving
    *Management made some good decisions recently on cuts that were made and in hiring a new CEO that has an excellent knowledge of the business (Jim Gibson is no longer the CEO, but is still with the company...nothing against him or his decisions, but it is good to have someone at the helm with more technical knowledge). They also have refined the focus of the business to the core competencies which has improved the bottom line.

    Cons

    The company is dependent on the economy, more specifically the Vegas tourism economy. This means it'll always be a roller coaster ride along with the economy.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget what the core of this business will always be.


  7. At one time, it was a great place to work but once the ownership sucked the life out of it.

    Pros

    Most people there were great and everyone really got along well. Before ownership's involvement, the executive team and staff built a really great company.

    Cons

    The ownership gave 1,000 directions at once, made poor decisions based on what they "felt", couldn't decide what was important and when things went downhill brought in consultants to just cut the company off at the knees without ever taking any responsibility. Sad that a great place was taken apart by the owners.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company to an organization that could run it more effectively.

    Pros

    - You get to meet celebrities
    - You get to go to some shows
    - Halloween used to be fun

    Cons

    Management does not communicate anything to their staff and when they do it's confusing. People live in terror of losing their jobs every day. Any tiny rumor makes everyone scared. Management does not offer praise for a job well done. Many promises for no more layoffs, only to have more layoffs. Morale is very low and it seems like management doesn't know it. Everyone is afraid to form friendships because they don't want to lose that friend. No one trusts anyone else there.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more openly with staff and treat them like people. Tell them they're doing a good job. Reassure them that their jobs are not in jeopardy. Get some training so you can learn to deal with people.

    Pros

    There are a lot of fun benefits to working at Vegas.com -- free show tickets, nightclubs, full access to Las Vegas. They also do fun employee events like Rock band competitions and Halloween festivities.

    Cons

    The biggest con to working here is the lack of upward mobility. They prefer to hire external employees rather than growing internal talent. Also, senior management are poor communicators. They also do not challenge their employees to be better. If you are ok with the status quo and never thinking outside the box then this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    I think their managers were never taught how to be managers. This company should consider sending them to training. The managers need to interact with their employees more and give their employees more resources to help them meet their company and professional goals. They also should commend a job well done, when appropriate.
