    I worked at Wynn Resorts full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good reputation, beautiful 5-star resort, impressive on resume. Free meal (average quality). Get to meet lots of great people, none of whom work in management or upper management.

    Cons

    Nightmare place to work. Corruption in HR departments. Favortism shown to a few, but line level people treated like dirt. Extremely unprofessional managers and directors who use intimidation, abuse and threats to keep people in line. Salaries are very low for the fact that its a 5-star resort. Fundamental lack of respect for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out the corruption in HR! You've got those core values - put them into practice yourselves instead of propagandizing to the employees.

    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.

    Tons of work added on with extremely low pay and treated like child.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Wynn Resorts

    Pros

    To be honest I truly tried to think of something positive about working here. I cannot think of one thing. I guess the hotel is pretty .....

    Cons

    Numerous pay reductions during a 7 year span.
    Department "restructures" aka eliminating departments and giving you the work load.
    Increased work load with 0 pay increase
    Commissions reduced
    Extremely strict monitoring used to determine if you're eligible for commissions.
    Permission must be asked to use the restroom
    Lunches often get held back 1 or 2 hours based on business demands.
    Treated like children
    Have to wait for lunch pass when you're allowed to go eat
    Micro- managed
    Horribly over priced benefits we paid $327 a month for family of 3
    No 401K match

    I worked here over 7 years and when I finally took the leap and decided to go somewhere that treated me with dignity. I was doing the work of once was 4 departments for about 10K less than when I started. I would not recommend this company to my worst enemy. It's truly awful management is horrible I feel so very sorry for my old comrades stuck in the hell center .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating staff like worthless minions. For every queue answered you should get increased pay. of at least $1.00 . Re do the commission structure so that's it's not insulting and demeaning to the staff 2.00 per upgrade on a $500. Room ? You should be ashamed!

    I worked at Wynn Resorts full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The only benefit for working at Wynn resorts Wynn / encore was the Farr lunch and getting paid to eat.

    Cons

    Bad management; leadership; micro-manage employees; want you to clock in exactly on time and clock out not a minute late; people are back stabbing.

    Pros

    Beautiful surroundings with an International brand recognition.

    Cons

    Lowest pay on the Strip
    High degree of turn-around
    No one knows whats going on
    Great disconnect between management and their employees
    Horrible vacation - one week per year, and you can't take it until you've been there one year.
    Most people are there to get some experience and move on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Giving people better pay and a better time off policy would be a good start. Mandating that all departments participate in the recognition programs would be nice too - they pump you up in orientation to believe that you'll be recognized for your hard work - not all departments do it or care.

    Every technical issue is treated as a forest fire. It's almost always "all hands on deck".

    Pros

    Gorgeous property which might sometimes make you feel proud about working there.

    Cons

    You'll hardly get noticed for a job well done if you are in the technology field. Most employees are not treated as humans and management's regard for your health and well-being is almost non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You really should pay attention to what your employees are saying about you. Many of your top employees have left. Those who are still there no longer perform at the level that they once did. You've received feedback from many recruiting firms in Las Vegas that prospective employees in the technology market do NOT want to work for Wynn Resorts because of the poor reputation that you've built for yourself. Wake up.
