    Benefits are way to expensive! The employee dining room is horrible. I know for a fact at least 10 (including myself) who have gotten food poisoning!

    I worked at MGM Resorts International part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free EDR food, great coworkers and cool customers, fun atmosphere

    Cons

    Everything is broken or breaking, management is crazy and power hungry and alot of asbestos.

    Advice to Management

    Seniority needs to be stronger, employees get a new position and become power hungry.

    Pros

    Great peers to work with. So many departments you interact with so you get to know everyone. Great location and people are very cheerful.

    Cons

    Raises are impossible. Management keeps money for themselves. HR department sucks and they are very rude. Promotions are very rare for those who work the hardest.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being greedy and share the wealth.

    Pros

    Good place for someone brand new to start out at. Really nice stepping stone toward career goals.

    Cons

    Management has odd rules that aren't company rules. Just ones they prefer. All employees are kept at extremes. No training and no work gets you paid a whole lot more than dedicated employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, we have alot of really good ideas.

    Good benefits and compensation.

    Cons

    Seniority house, therefore work-life balance may be difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Networking should not be more important than skill. Growth of a company should not depend on cutbacks.

    Pros

    A wide range of properties and lines of business offer a breadth of opportunities. Selectively phenomenal leaders, but you need to dig and be patient to find them.

    Cons

    Empowerment is a real problem at times, as it's an extremely vertical organization. Rock star employees in the Corporate space rarely stick around, as upward movement typically goes to external candidates. While there are opportunities to move up, the economics are below average if you're internal (i.e. Lower than avg pay).

    Culture isn't very supportive at times. Participation and engagement feels forced as opposed to genuine.

    Advice to Management

    Identify and support your top performers. I was told it financially makes more sense to leave and come back into a higher role solely due to the economics. Empower your rock stars.

    Pros

    A chance to work with people

    Cons

    Bad management. Management are very disrespectful. They don't want to be fair. Very disorganized. Shows lots of favoritism. Your life is here (esp. on the swing shift)

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees the way you want to be treated.
