    I have been working at Boyd Gaming full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have been having an amazing experience starting with my interview. I could easily see why the average company tenure is 10 years. The support that I have every single day has been from the top down. I feel very safe at my workplace, feel super welcomed and respected always. Everyone has been truly genuine and caring to not just the employees, but also the local communities. Most companies boast of a work-life balance,...

    Cons

    I don't know if it's because I haven't been here for over a year to have any cons at this time. I would recommend this company to anyone who is looking to learn, grow and access to limitless opportunities with the company. Boyd is also a very diverse place of employment; therefore, it is expected that you treat each other with respect and in all honesty, we should always anyhow! My pay is fair/competitive and my leaders...

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do what you do. How often do you meet the owners of the company? I have within my first 48-hours and they treat you like you matter and make a difference. My SVP knows my name and I met her once, how amazing is that and it is not in any pretentious way. My team makes me feel valued and it makes coming to work super easy and not just something I have to do for a paycheck. My team, management, and senior management...

      No opinion of CEO

      I have been working at Boyd Gaming full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Free soda in the break room.

      Cons

      Management doesn't listen to employees. Low pay and virtually no raises. Most of the work goes to a few of the employees, other employees lounge around all day. No one listens to suggestions. Prepare to be stressed and depressed because of this job and then be accused of not representing "Boyd Style" because you are unhappy with your job.

      Advice to Management

      Listen to your employees and please, get your casinos under control! Properties are expecting new collateral to be designed, approved, and sent to the printer in one day when it is supposed to be a 5 day turnaround! Stop buying more casinos and pay attention to the ones you have! I keep reading online reviews saying that most of Boyd Gaming's casinos are in poor condition and when employees know that the company doesn't...

      I worked at Boyd Gaming full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      The management really does care about the employees. The company has such a caring family type feel. If you have an issue they really do care and work hard to help.

      Cons

      It is a casino so the hours (for food and beverage anyway) are tough. Late nights and holidays but that's just server life, not a reflection of the company itself.

      Advice to Management

      I was really happy with my management at Delta Downs.

        I worked at Boyd Gaming full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        there are no pros to this place.

        Cons

        WAY low salaries, people are always leaving very fast. I went to orientation and that was about it. I STILL have not got paid for this. They expect you to work hard for little pay. Even management leaves.

        Advice to Management

        If you want people to work there, pay some money. Pay for what they did do also.
