    Pros

    The company has a strong foundation

    Cons

    There seems to be a lot of favoritism from management and too much gossip. Much is expected and very little room for error

    Management could do less micromanagement

    Pros

    MONEY. You will earn more tips here than most of the other resorts. Work here and your resume is golden... You'll be able to work ANYWHERE.

    Cons

    Tips are great, but hourly and union wages are the LOWEST on the entire strip. Constant stress and threats. Very negative vibe and energy. Terrible morale, you hardly ever see co-workers that are genuinely happy with the company or happy to be at work, all from the negative reinforcement and constant threat of discipline. Poor management, never take account for own shortcomings and instead heaps blame on subordinates. The actual good managers never get the recognition or ever stay because only the brown nosers survive and thrive. You know what trickles down (rhymes with "it"), from the always angry big boss to the entry level workers...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For F&B management, perhaps starting off working the counter at a fast food joint to get a better idea of food service and humanity from the ground level up.

    Pros

    Wynn Las Vegas is the best hotel on the strip by far. I reach this conclusion by taking into consideration how clean and well kept the property is.

    Cons

    Management. All of the supervisers and upper managment ( at least in my department ) all have worked with one another at other propertys. So the only way to get onto the managment team is to have been friends with them. Also, most of the time it's there way and thats the final decision they don't even consider employees thoughts even though many of us feel the same way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. If 51% of them feel that certin things should be handled differenlty then you should consider making changes.

    Pros

    Great place to work for as long as you are ok with a steady job that you don't have to use your brain.

    Cons

    No real weekends or holidays. Many weird shift hours. Too many people working there to make you feel like management really cares about you.

    Pros

    Wynn is a great place to work because they do offer consistently. There is also an environment that fosters fairness.

    Cons

    In my current position, there seems to be little, to no advancement possibilities. It also seems like the nail that sticks out gets pounded down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to keep your job, then don't try to be a leader. Our two heads run the show their way and want kiss ass managers that will do it the way they want. Kind of sad, but its not a bad place to be if you can stay off the radar.

    Not a strong enough sense of improvement.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Not bad for Vegas casino standards. Good variety of opportunities if you network well. Strong market position within Vegas.

    Cons

    Hiring based on buddy system, not quality of candidate. Lack of accountability, people try to not get fired, not give their best efforts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Personal improvement. Not just facilities.

    Pros

    People are friendly
    Lots of Work activities
    Good food for lunch.

    Cons

    Unless you know someone in a higher position, don't expect promotions based on merit. It's mainly based on seniority and favoritism.

    Pros

    Beautiful resort, parking for employees isn't too horrible.
    I like what I do and somehow manage to work around all the impossible paperwork and constantly changing policies to get my job done.

    Cons

    Uniforms in some departments are extraordinarily uncomfortable (actually painful) and make your job more difficult. No one seems to notice much less care. Management is all about keeping their job they do not care about their employees. Management shows up late, leaves early, takes long lunches, but there is no one monitoring them, ever. No sick days, they are completely inflexible with time off. Benefits have gotten worse and worse. Vision benefits are horrible, ironic? There is absolutely no advancement opportunities in most departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to stop worrying about being everyone's fake friend and start looking out for the best interest of the people that make your job easier. Work harder or at least as hard as your employees and you will increase moral immensely. I loved my job and then every day watching my bosses play favorites, walk in late, constantly put out fires they created has worn me down. I want to love my job again.
