    I have been working at MGM Resorts International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best reasons to work at MGM Resorts are as follows. First and foremost, you have nearly unlimited access to all different types of business functions (i.e. Retail, Entertainment, Food & Beverage, Casino, etc..) that you can work in. Transfer-ability is easy and seemless and most people in the company move around to many different areas to get ahead and develop skill sets. Next, the management team here is a very positive one to work in. There are many times where I met face to face with different executives and got a chance to discuss thoughts they had on where the industry is and where it is going. Lastly, and what some might consider the most important, is that it is VERY easy to move up in this company. I myself went through 3 promotions in 4.5 years here with the company from entry level to a Senior Analyst.

    Cons

    The biggest cons about MGM are the pay and talent retention. The pay is lower than most other industries and that factors into talent retention. MGM has a hard time hanging on to its Interns or MAPers (the college graduate management program), as they leave to find better paying jobs within 2-5 years.

    Pros

    MGM is a really good company to work for. You will learn a lot and it is easy to move around and grow with the company. The company has excellent benefits and the work life balance is good although a lot will depend on who you work for as it is a large company. The company is also doing well financially and has some cool developments coming online on the east coast and in China. The company operates the best portfolio of properties in Vegas so you will probably work at an awesome casino.

    Cons

    The only big con with MGM is the pay. If you start your career or begin in a low paying position with the company you will never be paid a market wage as you move up. Because of this I believe the company has and will continue to have high turnover in mid level white collar and middle management positions.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate compensation if you want to retain talent.

  3. "Overall, great company and it is highly dependent on who you work for."
