    I have been working at Boyd Gaming full-time (Less than a year)

    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.

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

    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
