Pros

Harrah's provides all the necessary tools to be able to perform the job. The leader in the industry has many properties to transfer to when looking for advancement or other opportunities. Considering a company of its size, Harrahs does a decent job recognizing/awarding its top performing employees. Harrah's recognizes the importance of the relationships it has with its customers proven by the loyalty that many customers have for the company.

Cons

Harrah's does not offer "fair market value" compensation for salaried professionals. Since the economic downturn, many departments reduced headcounts through attrition or elimination and those who were left were forced to pick up the additional work without any additional compensation. Merit increase programs were restructured to barely offer standard of living increases as a reward for top performance. Many talented employees have left the company due to this lack of respect and poor judgement executed to provide investors with a healthier bottom line. Unfortunately, the diminishing talent pool will undoubtedly result in less revenue-generating and cost-saving ideas in the future. Although the job market is currently flooded with professionals looking for work, the economy WILL improve and other businesses will gobble up the talent leaving Harrah's with the leftovers. The companies that take care of their own will grow and the others will struggle.

Advice to Management

Start to take better care of your salaried professionals. They are more important to the company than you think and its only a matter of time before they abandon ship. The importance of building positive relationships is not only limited to the customer. The employees, both hourly AND salaried, are a large part of the product that you offer.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    - Entertainment industry is exciting and never monotonous
    - Hard working employees
    - Employee perks: free meals, on-site medical clinic, reasonable benefits

    Cons

    - Not a values based company
    - Employee engagement suffers tremendously from knee-jerk reactions by senior management to conduct RIF's
    - Little to no trust among management team
    - Seedy work environment

    Advice to Management

    - Truly take the time to understand what it means to be a values-based company. There are so many companies to emulate i.e. Marriott, Proctor & Gamble, Altria, IBM, Johnson & Johnson, Container Store, etc.
