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

    Pros

    Ability to move to different department in corporation, with free training provided. Free drinks and some food at employees lounge. Good benefit package.A friendly co-worker atmosphere; Top management to bottom workers have to have a small town greeting mentality towards one another. A good thing !

    Cons

    Some salaries are low to make a living with. Maintaining a 40 hour week schedule, by company, sometime not meet. Promises of being able to move to a different, out of state ,Boyd Corporation sometimes is not meet.; Even after emphasizing it in original orientation week. Also some negative people that should not be working , here or most places, to be honest . Very strict with dress code. Sometimes a good thing! But if you look at any company is not so bad.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the negative workers. An employee appreciation week. Only for good employee's. More perk's like a monthly drawing, for a free stay at hotel suite, for employee and family. (only good employees should qualify). One last thing to Boyd Corp, Keep your promises, you mentioned in your orientation or don't even mention them.

    I worked at Boyd Gaming full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Best co-workers I have ever had the chance to work with.

    Cons

    The pay they are willing to offer current and new prospects are minimal at its best and do not compete with other companies in the same industry. I have several degrees and certifications under my belt actually related to the field I was working in and still was offered less than $40k. That's a $15,000-$20,000 differential from the average pay at other companies. Job titles are a suggestion, not really pertaining to what you do, which is everything they ask you to do. Raises are a joke, benefits or bonuses are non-existent, and the quality of life is abysmal considering the amount of time and effort that you put in. Short-staffed, more work, less pay. That's what you get when you work here and that is the "Boyd Style".

    Advice to Management

    There are too many bodies in upper management. Re-evaluate the priorities a little. We all understand that the bottom line is to make money but try to think about those who are trying to help you achieve that goal and keep the business going. No one is really happy here, but you wouldn't know that because there is very little interaction and communication. How about bringing the brand to a more upscale level and delivering better quality products. The Echelon would've been a good starting point, oh well. Also, the company should start supporting the LGBT community! Even the competitors: Caesars Entertainment, MGM Resorts, and Wynn Resorts are in with the program.
