    I worked at Pinnacle Entertainment full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The location in the city is fairly convenient and they have ample parking.

    Cons

    It wouldn't surprise me if a number of the good reviews on this site were completed by employees at the request of management. This was regularly done with any survey that was given to employees and I personally had a manager stand next to me and watch me fill out an employee satisfaction survey and correct my "mistakes."

    In my experience, this company is highly misogynistic. Male supervisors take female reports off campus for coaching sessions on how to be more feminine. Males are allowed to behave and speak in ways that females are not. HR doesn't care about the employees at all and ignores complaints.

    Also, should you decide to quit and you are in an at will state and you don't belong to an union, do not give this company the standard two week's notice. The minute you give your notice, they will call security to come and escort you out and they will ensure that it looks as much as possible like you are getting fired. Don't think you're safe because you are "salary" or "professional" either.

    To sum up: if you want to keep your self respect and dignity intact, don't work here.

    Advice to Management

    It's the 21st century. Act like it.
