I have been working at Jacobs Entertainment full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

If you would like to work for casinos, it is a great place to break in but that is it. They pay significantly less than industry standard.

Cons

it is a small casino
Pay is not comparable to industry standard
Advertising is ineffective
Low morale amongst employees
Little Room for advancement

Advice to Management

Spend more time on the service line, employees hate it

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

    Pros

    I enjoyed the Comped meals and the discounts at the coffee shop. Out on the casino floor you can run into all kinds of celebrities.

    Cons

    Low pay as compared to comparable jobs in town, and no pay difference for someone who has eight years IT experience versus someone who has zero.

    Getting woken up in the middle of the night for nonemergencies like password resets.

    Upper management is incapable of having a calm, rational, respectful conversation with someone regarding performance and instead prefers to yell and curse at employees.

    HR will not speak to you directly (you have to go through your manager) and they will fight to not honor any agreements in your offer letter.

    High turnover in the department as compared to other IT departments.

    Nepotism.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cursing at employees and learn how to have a professional conversation. As you expand convert to a 24 hour help desk. Change the culture to get rid of the good old boys club and the nepotism problems.
