    Pros

    Always striving to find ways to improve at a personal, team, and organizational level.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth as most employees are long term. This may be different in other departments, but some do not have a lot of movement so that you can "climb the ladder."

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, but look for ways to compensate deserving employees and positions to equal those of similar industries. There are 12 or so departments and some are unique to gaming and some are not, so make sure to compare with like industries.

    Pros

    Great company and benefits package. The professional atmosphere is amazing.

    Cons

    Departments are very scattered even though they are part of the same company under the same roof.

    Advice to Management

    The hiring process should be more rigorous to weed out the candidates that are not suitable for the positions being employed

    Pros

    Great benefits and that is all I can literally say about this business, that and atleast you get to go home after being miserable for 8 hours.

    Cons

    Unprofessional work environment, Extreme favoritism, common practice of fraternizing, wages, employees not free to use the restroom in some departments, Unequal treatment, lack of trust from management. Take it this way folks, if they can be rid of 6 EXTREMELY LOYAL employees who have been employed there for 18 years with perfect attendance and no personal complaints ever filed agaisnt them, then imagine what they would do to you! Fired with false charges amd NO evidence of this so called claim! Also over the course of 18 years, was not offered or even considered for a supervisor position. Oh and not to mention, the wage is slightly above minium wage after 18+ years of Hard work..BEWARE!! 6 EXTREMELY LOYAL AND HARD WORKING SENIOR EMPLOYEES FIRED DUE TO HEARSAY AND ZERO EVIDENCE! BEWARE..i am not the one who was fired, i am a whitness to these 6 amazing people..Good luck to you all!

    They offer great benefits and summer/winter dinners.

    Tribe has little to do with company culture, now it's revolving door of Las Vegas executive management.

    Pros

    The only pros I would say are the benefits, and if you work swing shift, the tips are decent.

    Cons

    The supervisors were kind of douschey, the process of getting through the tribal members to be hired was a nightmare.The hourly rate is a JOKE. I am so glad i don't work there anymore.

    Pros

    I enjoy every aspect of my job! Higher-ups are always respectful and willing to listen, Pay is great and benefits are greater!
    Flexible hours and guests are a pleasure to work with.

    Only con I would have is the smoke filled work enviorment. But once you get used to it you will be ok.
