    Pros

    Great health insurance.
    Usually get a large annual bonus.

    Cons

    Like all gaming corporations there is a lot of red tape. It is very difficult to implement anything new.
    There is a lot of continuous turn over in upper management. There were at least 4 CIO changes during my 4 years at the Sands.

    Pros

    Ability to continue your education. You will have an opportunity to obtain multiple certifications while you are employed. 100% employer paid benefits.

    Cons

    Culture seems to be lacking. If you do not have a thick skin, I wouldn't recommend working here.

    Advice to Management

    Find what kind of culture you want to have and have that become a part of the hiring process. This is directed to the department level more than the company as a whole.

    Pros

    Benefits 100% paid which is nice. Discounts to shops and restaurants within casinos. The pay is on the higher side compared to other resorts in Las Vegas.

    Cons

    Management is wishy washy and unstable. You will never get promoted within unless you know personally a higher up/director. There is little to no movement or growth opportunity. Brings in lots of contractors then releases so there too many different hands with no consistency. Overall I would say very poorly managed from top down.

    Advice to Management

    Reward, listen to and acknowledge your staff. Step out of your office to have a conversation. Don't be two-faced between one-on-ones and team meetings. Reply to emails and be available. Encourage hiring qualified staff not just a body to fill a space or req,
