    Pros

    Set schedule if full-time, benefits, uniform provided including dry cleaning, posted at different areas, interaction with different types of people.

    Cons

    Not much to say. Cliques exist, but it did not bother me. Holidays are busy, so expect to work overtime.

    I worked at The Cosmopolitan full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fast-paced environment, some great folks to work with, Marriott discounts. I was a day one Co-star, and it was great to be full time with benefits. You can never knock that.

    Cons

    The worst leadership ever. In over 25 years in gaming, hands down, Cosmopolitan is where the worst managers go when no one else wants them. Working with them is like being in junior high school. Favoritism, sexual harassment, discrimination, its all waiting for you at Cosmo
    The 'People Department' (HR) isn't much better.

    Advice to Management

    Start taking care of the people who work for you instead of only working about yourselves. Talk to them, listen to them. Maybe take a management course or a class in empathy.

    I worked at The Cosmopolitan full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's quite an engaging environment. Supportive and spirited co-workers, with the exception of management.

    Cons

    Management. Many were promoted based on politics and popularity. There was a serious lack of experience and ability to lead and direct. They also lacked empathy and people skills. The hardest workers were the least appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example. Popularity contests and cliques will only get you so far.

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere and exciting property...always something going on. Instead of employees you are co-stars. Cosmo really works hard on making you feel like you belong.

    Cons

    Needed to have a meal plan for those that worked offsite from the property. For those who worked on property received a $8 a day per diem.

    Pros

    Great work culture & internal organization. Company allows employees to feel valued and appreciated. Great management.

    Cons

    Quality of service is sacrificed when short staffed. Guests adapt a "I can do whatever I want" attitude and sometimes don't appreciate workers. Environment is fast paced and can be stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Put yourself in your employees shoes and extend a space for open floor discussions about how to improve efficiency and environment.
