    I have been working at Boyd Gaming full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Health premiums are not expensive. Boyd will hire you with no experience for certain positions, which is great for recent college graduates looking to get experience where other employers wouldn't give you a chance until you have a few years of on-the-job experience. The company is known for job security.

    Cons

    The paid time off is less than related employers. 401-k plan is not great. The salary range is less than industry averages.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to change and not stuck on the attitude of, "it's always been done this way so why do we have to change".

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible hours, generous time-off, wonderful colleagues who are real professionals in their fields, and an environment that's conducive to productivity and growing as a person (for example, paid time to volunteer next Friday!). Also, the executive recruiter is very professional and experienced in helping people through the hiring process.

    Someone complained that there are only two flavors of free iced tea. That happened.

    Pros

    Camaraderie among co-workers is very strong in most departments.

    Teamwork and collaboration. Positive people working toward a common goal and that is to serve our customers and create an extraordinary experience.

    I don't really have any. We are going through some great change that feels a bit hefty right now - but we are going to be better because of it.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate with and trust the smart and dedicated team members throughout the enterprise and we will continue to bring Boyd Style to the forefront of our day - everyday!!
