    Flexible hours

    May 24, 2021 - General and Operations Manager in Las Vegas, NV
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Really good about working with your schedule. During down times there is alot of flexibility to take personal time. The trade off is that you are very busy during the busy times of the year (12-16 hr days for weeks at a time are not uncommon).

    Cons

    Long hours, working at any hour of the day. Much of the work is done outdoors or in non climate controlled convention spaces. Better not mind sweating.

    Good opportunities for growth

    Jun 11, 2020 - Account Manager in Chicago, IL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I have worked for other general contractors and I think GES has the best opportunities for growth. If you know you want to make a career in live events, I think you will be able to move forward and make a real impact at GES. Other large GC's really just offer a lot of lateral moves. You can learn a lot here if you are willing to immerse yourself. Having a "that's not my job attitude" will ultimately hurt you in the end. You will work hard but it will be worth it in the end.

    Cons

    Upper management is not consistent and some managers on the local level will make you feel unappreciated. The culture can be negative due to long hours and sometimes thank less work. Departments are really siloed and it makes it difficult to get a well rounded training.

    Pros

    Loved working for GES. Long hours, a few really amazing leaders and a great chance to learn

    Cons

    A tendency to find a good worker and just suck everything they can out of them without increasing pay or title. No upward mobility unless you move to Las Vegas.
