    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits. Highly recommend.

    Cons

    Corporate side is a bit challenging. The property side is better fit for technical candidates.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate department is not in touch with employees but property side is much better. Excellent pay and benefits and a high reommendation.

    Pros

    The silver lining for this company is that they have the most up to day technology, they just never use it to its full potential so I kind of really doesn't matter. If you come from outside the company they will pay you a really high salary too. Plus if you want to go international in Gaming this is the best place to do it since they are the best internationally. Best benefits in town as well.

    Cons

    The place operates in a perpetual state of fear. The CEO micro manages everything and everyone is scared they could get fired if they rock the boat too much. Also promotions aren't ever really dependent on work output, just solely friends in high places. Also you almost never need proof to go with an idea which is why if you want an Analytics career your best to just get some experience here if you have to then just leave somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Stop purging your HR department every other year and come up with a cohesive corporate structure. This still place operates a huge "mom and pop" operation and it's hurting moral and career growth.

    Pros

    Great benefits, competitive salary, good 401k match, free health care

    Cons

    No holidays, 24 hour gaming so might have to work random hours

    I worked at Las Vegas Sands

    Pros

    The company always has a lot of work out in front of them

    Cons

    The Development side of the company is run by Ex-Disney employees. They have NO clue when it comes to understanding the gaming industry. Everything is process driven rather than by common sense. The development executives are arrogant. Sheldon Adelson needs to wake up and hire folks who have development experience in the gaming industry.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the Disney idiots.

    Pros

    Good growth opportunities, possibility of moving between different properties in Las Vegas, PA, Macau and Singapore

    Cons

    Lot of slave drivers. No work life balance. There is always talk of work life balance, but that's just lip service.

    Pros

    The BEST BENEFITS on the strip! There is absolutely NO employee contribution at all regardless of the family size. This is because Sheldon Adelson spares no expense to keep the Union out! So enjoy the benefits

    Cons

    The IT Department is toxic, hostile and overly political. They repeatedly re-org and burn and churn through team members in order to give them shareholders the illusion of more revenue. They repeat the same vision with every new CTO/CIO. I've personally seen it done 3xs prior to my final resignation. #ApplyAtYourOwnRisk!

    Advice to Management

    Handle team members with care instead of treating people like a commodity

    Pros

    Generally it has been a positive experience working in the gaming industry with Sands at the Bethlehem location. Interaction with personnel at this location has been positive, however limited.

    Cons

    Communication between departments and in departments should be improved. This would improve overall efficiency, personnel morale and customer satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Make a more concerted effort to utilize talented individuals within the company.

    Pros

    Great colleagues and some really smart and talented employees. Very nice environment, excellent physical condition. Great tools, good systems. Paid health insurance is nice but quality of insurance is middle of the road.

    Cons

    Extremely top down executive culture, micromanaged from the top. Very difficult to try new things, too much second guessing and too many Monday morning quarterbacks. Extremely high turnover in more senior positions, either people can't stand it or they say the wrong thing. Dental/Eye Care are below standard although company paid.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the quality people who are no longer there. Don't kid yourself about the message that sends to all employees. You've lost or sent away very high quality, respected individuals. You've lost or sent away people who are head and shoulders above the strip.
