    The Venetian is an extremely luxurious, high-end resort with a professional and fun team that works well together.

    Former Employee - Front Desk Manager in Las Vegas, NV

    I worked at Venetian Casino Resort Inc full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Our opinions are heard and taken to heart. I feel as though action is taken quickly when a process needs to be changed or improved. The team is extremely professional and respectful of one another. Everyone takes their job seriously and is appreciative of the opportunity.

    Cons

    The team is micromanaged and under a watchful & critical eye, which makes most people feel like they cannot be empowered and like they are always under scrutiny.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The lifestyle is a very stressful environment, which then leaves a stressful impression on our team members and guests. Guests have noted they can see the intensity of management and how it impacts our front desk staff in a negative way. I would also recommend adding stock options.

    Pros

    Great benefits, Great Team Member events. Offers training classes. The people you work with are great in other departments. The flex time off Is great. Overall this is a great company to work for. It has great values.

    Cons

    Some departments no room for advancements. Work life is unbalanced. They do not seem to value those who have worked in the company a long time. Some areas need the proper tools to fully complete jobs. Hiring within should be more of a policy if possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really understand the employees better. Think of employees when setting priorities. Value the employees who have been there the longest and really make them feel special and keep those loyal employees from leaving

    Pros

    Great benefits and a great team without a lot of turnover. Lots of options for employees to take advantage of.

    Cons

    It's such a large company that it can be hard to get to know people from different departments, which makes it difficult when you have a large event that requires a lot of cross-department interface.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great tm events to show how the company feels in a whole about its employees. New leadership training is very good and will bring the skills necessary to managers that are lacking.

    Cons

    Work life balance could be better as well as realistic expectations from employees. Communication is lacking is some departments especially concerning when the department that needs improvement should lead by example..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at some of the newer leadership and ask their teams how they are doing?

    Pros

    Very nice property and free food

    Cons

    Employees complain about being written up, highly inexperience employees. Not joking -- makes one wonder how they got their position. It seems like everyone in the department is in an entry level position. A lot of phony two faced people. Very disingenuous individuals work there. Not allowed to speak up - change or offer suggestions it's just not acceptable. A lot of gossip in the office. People who have been there for 5 years or more are still in entry level positions. The pay is way below average.

    High turn over. This company is great for someone who doesn't want to grow within the company or who is not a hard worker, do what's asked of you and never make any suggestions and don't rock the boat or they will find some way to fire you, you'll be just fine if your phony and do everything that's asked of you. The culture here is absolutely hideous, employees seem unhappy and poor attitudes are common place here.

    I've never worked for a company that does not want employees to advance or suggest things that might benefit their company. They are very out dated in their thinking and use very archaic systems, verbiage and processes. Most companies now days don't operate like this. No wonder a lot of the employees want to work for a certain company in town and not the Venetian. I've over heard several asking about another company which shall remain nameless! Because this place is just not a good environment to work in. The employees are over stress, underpaid, and over worked. Everything they do is behind the times. It's almost shocking -- it really is that bad!! Also explains why theirs ALWAYS jobs available in the advertising department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledge your best employees, allow employees to make suggestions and contribute to the making the company a great place to work by trusting them and giving them a voice. Sometimes you are not always right! Some times employees have great ideas, they need work life balance, they deserve promotions and other opportunities that other companies afford their employees. Look for things you could do better to make your employees happy and not feel like they have to back stab each other to get ahead. Or feel like they have to worry they will lose their job.

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Have great perks and try to change. Mr. Boyd and Caparella are wonderful people who really care about the employees.

    Cons

    Horrible two-faced phonies with no experience run the place. No career advancement unless you are directed to back-stab coworkers to get ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the lot and start fresh with employees who have integrity and talent. Fire the VPs who undermine the hard work of Boyd and Caparella.
