    Treat You Like Family

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Boyd Gaming is owned and operated by the Boyd family and has been since Las Vegas was a fraction of what it looks like today. Team members are taught the V.I.E.W. values and given a personal history by Mr. Boyd himself. There are perks to working in hospitality and, even when live events shut down, the company did everything they could to employ people as long as possible. I received a personal phone call from the GM, expressing his gratitude for my contributions to the company and that I'd be welcome back in the future.

    Cons

    Like any big company, getting things done involves many hands. This can make lighter work, and also slow things down. Working there involves remembering how many different departments are effected.

    Corporate Culture that emphasis Bottom Line Cuts over Resources Necessary to Run the Business

    Pros

    There are some incredibly hard working people at both the property and corporate levels. Blood, sweat, and grit! The occasionally push the bubble on utilizing technology to achieve market advantages.

    Cons

    They have NEVER staffed appropriately. Work Mid-Mgmt 70+ hours to then criticize when they didnt step up to do someone else's job. Doesnt matter that you worked 76+ hour week, you didnt send out the perfect email internally. Also, dont think about any formal training, even when you do get access to training materials expect to work full shifts.
