    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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    Good coworkers are the only thing that's kept me here this. Flexibility with schedules

    Cons

    Poor management. This company runs on a very old school "it's always been done this way" mentality. POOR RAISES. Everyone gets the same terrible 1% raise every year, no matter their performance. My rich, old, white, male boss actually told me while giving me that 1% raise "eh cost of living doesn't matter." And this management grinds their good workers into the ground, expecting them to pick up the slack from the bad workers. Lots of passive aggressiveness from leadership, rather than disciplining the bad employees, they send out a passive aggressive email to everyone.

    Advice to Management

    REWARD YOUR GOOD EMPLOYEES! People deserve raises based on merit AND raises that keep up with the cost of living
