    I worked at Turning Stone full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Rooms division / ops had a great team. Was very lucky to have a great vp of ops (who is now senior vp) and a fantastic director of hotel operations.

    Cons

    No cons except there isn't much upward mobility for lower middle management.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! Also please build a luxury cabin site with about 20 cabins, a pond, etc.

    I worked at Turning Stone part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I met a lot of nice people from both Utica/Rome, and Syracuse. Most jobs are very demanding, but the frindge benefits often times out way the tolls.

    Cons

    Commute time, pay in some instances, and middle managements unsympathetic in granting sick days.

    Advice to Management

    Stay out of the retail business and focus more on entertainment.

    I have been working at Turning Stone full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, PTO good, benefits good.

    Cons

    Advancement is very poor, Too much nit-picking, Was told that they will not chase competitive wages. Will not pay according to living wage. Loyalty for employees is very poor. 10 years employee trreated same as 1 year employee. zero appreciation for any good job. Work only hard enough to not lose your job anything over that and never recognized. poor mamangement skills and communication.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect and value your loyal workers or employees will leave at the slightest increase in pay, maybe even for slightest better benefits. Especially when you have 2 competing casinos opening near you. Pay employees more and they will rise to the occasion when dealing with work and customers. Otherwise don't be surprised when your employees are rude to customers and have no care for their workplace.

    find a better solution to where the employees park.

    I have been working at Turning Stone (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, PTO good after years, holiday pay, health benefits decent.

    Cons

    Rude management, lot of undermining for your experience level, too much nitpicking when productivity is way down. Uptight upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Need to focus on boosting morale in your department rather then belittling and nitpicking your employees. No one appreciates anything you do only complains.
