    Pros

    Guests are great, Coworkers are great. You all know your in a poor situation so it's nice when everybody comes together to make the best of it.

    Cons

    A lot. Poor Human Resource Management, Poor executive decision making. This is a company who will hire a private company to come on property and partake in unionbusting and advise you that Turning Stone is doing the best it can be without needing a union. However other unionized casinos in the vacinity that are offering there employees almost $3 to $4 dollars more on entry level positions. Poor compensation and a turnover rate that far succeeds other properties.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the corporate spinning. You have two unionized casinos in between you, just stop being so oppressive. Some executives are fabulous however there are some who take advantage of the manual laborers or employees whom are "beneath them". This is a casino, not a merging credit union.

    I have been working at Turning Stone full-time

    Pros

    Flexible hours, multitude of departments and positions

    Cons

    Very little upward mobility, no time is taken to better guest relations by discussing opportunities with employees

    Advice to Management

    Talk with your employees about what can be improved and actually listen. The associates know more about day to day interactions with customers than management does.

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

    Pros

    I liked orientation. The guys that introduce you to TS do a good job conveying the information and getting you excited to work there.

    Cons

    The most morally bankrupt place I've worked. Management lies all the time. Nothing is written down, so they can change their story anytime they feel like it. Say one thing, do another.

    Advice to Management

    If you can't get your C-level executives to get on the same page, can't get them to stop their in-fighting, then fire both and move forward.

    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.
