    Approves of CEO

    I worked at MGM Resorts International full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    MGM leaders care about employees with excellent health care and training programs. Health care quality and expense are the best in the industry. MGM tuition assistance programs are incredible and support continued learning for all employees. You can spend an entire career growing through the properties into larger roles.

    Cons

    Pace of work is fast. There is always something going on or projects to implement. Work can be stressful if you out everything into doing your job successfully. Heavily weighted in Las Vegas, so the company is impacted by anything that impacts Las Vegas as a destination.

    I worked at MGM Resorts International full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free food everyday is great. Pretty laid back atmosphere. Expect to finish a realistic amount of work and never loading too much on the plate.

    Cons

    A ton of walking, over 10k steps a day though that could be a positive health wise. Poor management. Far too many layers of upper management which makes it impossible to enact changes with a good idea and good luck getting a promotion more than once.

    Pros

    Benefits, flexible with management. Each office is different.

    Complex duties, even would get calls at 9pm-10pm to fix travel arrangements. You are on call even when you left the office or took days off. Boss did not consider and would still contact me while on vacation or pto.
