    I worked at Melco PBL Entertainment full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Competitive salary and C&B package
    - Nice working environment
    - Loose control on employees and allow incapable persons to be management
    - If you are an apple-polisher, congratulation, you can be a successful story here
    - If you are a doer, be prepared to adapt the workload of a few persons as others are apple-polishers.

    Cons

    - Chaotic politics, frequent changes in management
    - Had great vision but unrealistic, which gives reason for many parties to abuse resources for reaching such targets.
    - Not treasure existing staff
    - Increasing Chinese company culture, especially after Crown sold its shares. Even majority of senior management are expats, they act like drama of meddling inside a Ancient Chinese Palace. Great to see a batch of top, experienced executive in gaming industry behave and act more Chinese than a Chinese.

    Advice to Management

    Given that with the current management team, the CEO and Chairman would not be able to see the real picture of the company's operation.
    Suggest cash out by selling the properties and shares to competitors like the Sands and Galaxy. They operates more efficiently with realistic targets, down-to-earth review on operation performance.

    Pros

    Good industrial exposure. Work with worldclass hoteliers and solve challenge everyday.

    Cons

    It's a big organization which in a way discourage efficiency. Don't find any entrepreneurship spirit too much. If you are looking to think out of box, be innovative and creative, this is probably the company you would like to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure the organization to encourage the talent to stay and push efficiency.

    Pros

    Good entertainment value, great shows

    Cons

    Management has no honor or concept of employee or skill retention, simply wish to hire the cheapest, labor possible at the expense of higher payed talent. When they feel that you have become too expensive or outlived your "usefulness" they will underhandedly buy you out of your contract and then use predatory and threatening tactics to make sure you go away quietly.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting costs and getting rid of your best and brightest talent. They can only keep doing this until god forbid someone gets killed, and maybe then that won't even stop them.

    Maximum exposure towards learning to deliver excellent service towards VIP guests. The role also requires you to collaborate with many departments, ensuring to satisfy the needs of the guests.

    Due to the flexibility of the management to meet the needs of the customers, there are a lot of grey areas with the instructions and regulations.
