What our users are saying about working for MGM Resorts International
Not a good company. Cares more about money than the employees
There are very few women in my department. I do a traditionally male job. Every day I have to work twice as hard to get half the credit, knowing fully that there will still be some of my coworkers who do not believe I belong there. I have made it a total of 17 minutes after clocking in before hearing a misogynistic or bigoted comment. I have to joke with the boys, take their criticism with a smile, and hide my disgust at their conduct. “Women in trades,” is given a lot of lip-service, but the actual experience of being a woman in engineering can be so emotionally exhausting that I come home drained, and hollow. Seeing the way men conduct themselves when they forget I’m in the room, hearing the way they talk about us, has permanently damaged my relationship with men in general. The things they say and think about even women that they love, women who have mothered their children, are heartbreaking. I believe I will rose to a management position. I believe I will deserve the position, but I will always know that the majority of my crew will insist that I’ve been placed in the position out of affirmative action.
Great company love to work here.
Anyone who works here will say it is an honor to be with such an amazing company. I am grateful every day for my job!
Great company and employer
Great company and employer.
My team is great and very inclusive, but elsewhere there are issues with men and women viewing women as credible.
The company promotes and encourages women, but only the type who are willing to give their life over to their job...at least at the supervisor level and up, within most departments. At the salaried level you are expected to work 50 hours + continuously. You're expected to change schedules often and at the last minute. Maternity leave is just six weeks and only paid if you buy the disability insurance in advance . Very difficult to work and manage family at this pace, especially if you have under fives. If you can sacrifice your family and outside time then this company can do great things for you. I am highly qualified but left MGM for a job that allows better work/life balance.
The company boasts a robust "diversity" campaign that all managers are required to process through. However, it's geared much more toward protecting MGMRI from lawsuits than producing a diverse work environment. While there are a few women in senior positions, they are vastly outnumbered by men. My department (Entertainmant) in particular is very unfriendly toward women. One of my leads has made several comments to me regarding his beliefs that it is inappropriate for women to be in the workforce altogether. His attitude is not rare. HR made it clear that this sort of behavior is only taken into consideration if preformed by mid-level employees or lower, and that leadership operates more or less carte blanche. While I am not a parent, it appears fathers receive a lot more support when it comes to family emergencies than mothers. They do have a daycare service at lower cost to all employees, and some lactation facilities. While the company seems to offer equal opportunities for both men and women, the internal culture of sexism is not addressed, and women rarely find themselves candidates for advancement with most departments.
The first time I became pregnant, i was working in a position which could be dangerous while pregnant. They had a position, covered by my job description which would take me out of harms way, and my manager agreed to it. HR decided to lay me off instead. I tried applying for disability exception, and was denied. I applied for light duty and was denied because I was a liability. I even tried unemployment, but was denied because technically I was still employed. I would lose my insurance, no longer have income, and possibly lose the job before the baby was born. The stress of essentially losing my job caused me to miscarry. HR was both unsympathetic, and just plain mean about it all. I transfered to another property after that. They were better, but only because I now had union backing. Worst employer I have ever had.
MGMRI is an amazing company to work for. My only qualm is lack of maternity leave outside of federally mandated benefits and lack of support for returning moms. This is on a corporate level, not a representation of my team and management which has been incredibly supportive.
The finance/accounting division of the company is a great place for women to start their career. The leadership (mostly women) gave me a sense of purpose and direction that made work meaningful. They also placed importance on both company culture and work-life balance.
