    I worked at Woodbine Entertainment full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    In the department I worked in, great work/life balance, great sense of teamwork, ability to work on interesting projects, unique environment (horse racing industry), sense of pride within the organization

    Cons

    Pay isn't very good, old guard culture, disconnect between upper management and rest of workers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start to pay your employees market value, offer more incentives to employees

    Frustrating lack of communication from upper management. Felt like a mushroom.

    I worked at Woodbine Entertainment

    Pros

    Considerable freedom to work hours as needed, though that would not appeal to someone who objects to working nights and weekends! Good variety of duties and some autonomy. Great benefits package and decent end-of-year bonus.

    Cons

    Input from employees often ignored. Objectives and changes not clearly communicated by management. No feedback on work accomplished. No coherence of message. I was in a department of four employees, and my supervisor FORGOT (or deliberately neglected) to notify me about an important departmental meeting with upper management -- made me look like a fool. Disconnect between upper management and the industry of horse racing is sometimes vast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and listen to the horsepeople. Remember who is your bread and butter.
