    Nine years of excellence

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI 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.

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

    Could be better, like everything else...

    Bell Attendant (Current Employee) Las Vegas, NV (US)

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

    ConsLowest 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 Senior ManagementEven 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It's a prison

    Manager (Current Employee) Las Vegas, NV (US)

    ProsHmmm, tough, but here goes, nice building

    ConsThis is the panoptic work place at its finest. Workers are treated like prisoners at all times and bullied by the Guards who masquerade as executives. Being a tall blonde will get everything. No one gets to the top with their brains.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou should do 360 degree reviews. If you think you don't have bullies, chances are it's you.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Avoid working at Wynn

    General Manager (Former Employee) Las Vegas, NV (US)

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

    ConsNot 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 Senior ManagementAllow 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.

    Maintaining 5 stars and happiness.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThere is a reason Wynn Resorts consistently maintains 5 stars, its the level of service and behind that are people. The pro is you are truly able to learn from the best in the business, Individuals who have been hand selected for their skill level and absolute dedication to their industry.There is so much to be learned from such different management styles that all have one thing in common, guest satisfaction.

    ConsThere is a lot of 'red tape' to go through to get something done that falls outside of Policy and Procedure which limits empowerment. There is no room for error which is understandable, however, it can also create uneasiness among employees and instead of owning mistakes and seeking out guidance it cultivates a certain amount fear in employees(especially line level) and an unwillingness to own their actions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower and cultivate employees, employees who can seek guidance without difficulty will help create a more cohesive team.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
