    I have been working at Wynn Resorts full-time for more than 8 years

    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.

    Total dismay in the F&B department....The Senior management is so out of touch.

    I have been working at Wynn Resorts

    Pros

    Being full time. That is about it.

    Cons

    Get used to a constant change in middle and lower management as they have such a high turnover that they can no longer promote from within but hire from the outside. Meaning...every new Chef has a different way of doing the menu..and that is everyday! It is mind boggling try and keep up with an inconsistent menu. There was but is no more SOP.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the backgrounds of some of these Chefs you hire or promote. Their 'skeletons in the closet' start to come out in patterns of abuse and flurtations.

    I have been working at Wynn Resorts

    Pros

    I was part of the opening team back in 2005. From day one, Steve has made this place about the employees. There have been many changes, some great, some not so great. When something doesnt fit, he has no problem listening to his staff and fixing it right.

    Cons

    Some people are in positions of authority who have no concept of what an effective leader is. Not all, infact, the majority of the leaders are amazing, but just a few bad apples....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your team. You can make all the changes you want, but none will be successful without the support of your staff.

    I have been working at Wynn Resorts part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Free meal, beautiful resort, high clientele list and high volume (for the most part).

    Cons

    Lowest Union paying positions on the strip, Wynn Employee garage is a headache, lots of pressure (depending where you work) due to constantly being shopped. Management has a lot of snitches and back-stabbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even if you assume someone is not doing the right thing, put our faith on them and they will eventually see that and do the right thing.

    I worked at Wynn Resorts full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The resort is beautiful, great benefits and paid lunch meal.

    Cons

    Not every division run by the same policies and procedures. Upper management decides what policies apply to certain individuals. If you disagree, employee relations will not support you as they state it is the decision that division's upper management and that is who they support. Unless you are willing to be their puppet, you are either fired or forced out. Associate salaries are the lowest on the strip. There is no real training other than new hire orientation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow employees to express themselves and evaluate your current management. Many managers have no experience and hold high positions solely because the "play the game". Unless things change, the new hotels opening on the strip will not only steal away your employees but your guests will opt to stay elsewhere.
