    Pros

    Benefits are good people are great.

    Having to ride the bus. You lose 30-45 mins sometimes because you have to wait for a bus to get back to your car and to get over to the casino.

    Advice to Management

    find a better solution to where the employees park.

    Pros

    Benefits, liked coworkers, pay not bad

    Cons

    Management never listens, only way to get promoted is to kiss someone's butt. They allow upper management to steal all the time, people get fired for taking carpet out of dumpster.

    Advice to Management

    Need to start with new management, they don't care about employees only how much they can get for themselves.

    Good work environment paired with a good general benefits package.

    Cons

    You should focus more on your employees well being in regards to the hours they work, salary, and general time spent away from their families

    I worked at Turning Stone full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free Coffee, Discounted Lunches. Pizza was good.

    Cons

    -Accounting Managers don't have the background to support their title.
    -Middle managers are allowed to bully recently onboarded staff while upper management looks the other way.
    -There are no dress down days.
    -They require that you park far from the building and take their bus from the parking lot to the building, which adds between 1/2 hour to 45 mins on to your commute.
    -Excessive 90 day waiting period for health insurance coverage (being from Boston, I wasn't aware that companies were allowed to not offer health insurance coverage starting the 1st day of employment)
    -They take full advantage of their middle of nowhere location.
    -Employees are stuck dealing with whatever they dish out including well below average pay, because this is the only job within a 50 mile radius.

    Advice to Management

    I was terminated in less than 60 days because of dirty office politics by an incompetent "Accounting Manager." This person literally had it out for me from day one. She was constantly trying to make me look bad. Fire unqualified "Accounting Managers" and value those who are capable of doing the job well more than who is well liked within the group.

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

    Pros

    Medical and dental, 401K, PTO (for full time and salaried)

    Cons

    Medical benefits keep rising each year and the pay does not.
    Pay is NOT industry standard and raises do NOT happen. If they do happen they are only between 1-3% helps cover the new expenses for insurance.
    No room for advancement or pay incentives/increases!
    Does not listen to any advise from employees on projects.

    Advice to Management

    Management is less qualified than their employees who actually have college degrees for what they went to school for. Management doesn't understand the business they're trying to develop. They create projects that make no income for the business and has a demeanor that they're the boss and can do everything, but you cannot.

    I worked at Turning Stone full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Cheap food that isn't bad. You get a paycheck. You get decent discounts sometimes. Do have some classes that you can take that may help you with your job.

    Cons

    Very monotonous job. When you walk in the employee entrance you notice over half the employees are in an awful mood. Probably because of too much workplace politics, and being overworked by management.
    In reality Turning Stone is the revenue center for the Oneida Nation's political activities, although it does provide money for their community and other essential.
    Managers often

    Advice to Management

    The first day you walk in for training you are told to smile more. Well many of us are in stressful situations and depending on your manager you might be second guessed all the time, adding to the stress, add to this lack of sleep at times, and below average pay. This makes for an awful environment.
    Also leave your employees out of the political battles the Oneida Nation engages in, we simply don't care, and most of us oppose it.

    I have been working at Turning Stone full-time

    Pros

    Other than benefits, there are truly none that I personally can speak of.

    Cons

    The "business" is run more like a high school and different departments leaders will try to keep employees in that department with false write ups.

    Advice to Management

    Get some new management who are actual professionals in the area of business and not just people fresh out of college. Raise your standards and I'm sure you could benefit from it.
