Casino executives enjoy job security and potential career growth as the gaming industry nears a return to the “glory days” of the mid-2000s, and industry survey says.
“Executives in every jurisdiction are increasingly positive about the future of their careers in the casino gaming industry,” Bristol Associates President Ben Farber said. “The numbers show that we are heading back up towards the glory days of 2005 and 2006.”
Spectrum Gaming Group this month released the results of its 15th online survey of casino executives to help the gaming industry attract, retain, and motivate executive talent.
The report indicates the importance of job security took prominence as the industry matures and executives are more content in their present positions. Overall optimism for individual career growth has returned to pre-recession levels, reflecting improved market conditions.
The Seminole Tribe captured first place as the employer of choice, just ahead of Penn National. The Mohegan Tribe was third.
Executives cited Las Vegas as the market with most potential, while California came in second.
The annual Bristol Associates/Spectrum Gaming Group Casino Executive Survey is a comprehensive employee-satisfaction survey that has continued to expand with more than 4,000 cumulative responses in the last six years.
Gaming industry executives from across the country participated and all individual responses are kept confidential.
