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

Pros

I enjoyed working with the business users and my colleagues.

Cons

Upper management changes resulted in a shift in direction, and was no longer an environment I felt I belonged in. Focus was given to new technologies and implementing direction away from previous regime. Promotion opportunities were limited. Bonus directed to those more visible to C-level.

Advice to Management

It may be "just a title" to you, but it matters to those of us that don't have the title and the bonus structure that goes with it.

    I worked at Freeman full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had a 20 year proven administrative career prior to Freeman at only 2 companies working for some very established Senior Executives.

    Cons

    Was not on the "Friends & Family" Plan. Nepotism at its finest goes on at Freeman.

    Advice to Management

    I wouldn't know where to begin.

    I worked at Freeman full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The only benefits are the resources at your disposal.

    Cons

    I worked for and was fired by an incompetent manager that only received her position by default not by any experience or qualification to perform her job correctly. Freeman Las Vegas still promotes the friends and family plan for any advancement opportunities. They have followed this plan and promoted too many people to manager positions that have no actual qualifications. Typical HR, backs up the company and sacrifices the employees. Freeman is not the great place to work at that it used to be.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house, do what you have done in the upper (VP) management area, hire people from outside of the company and even outside of the industry that actually have some management training, knowledge and experience. With people in place that actually know what they are doing you will become a 2 billion dollar a year company . I saw a great quote on LinkedIn, "Don't push good employees to the point that they don't care" this seems to be the philosophy at Freeman.
