“The amount of job opportunities within the casino industry has increased as of late, however the market is still extremely competitive." -- Ben Farber, President, Bristol Associates

Bristol Associates (http://www.bristolassoc.com), an executive search firm, today announced the results of its 2016 Casino Gaming Executive Satisfaction Survey. The survey provides feedback from executives concerning their job satisfaction, outlook on the industry, as well as the top employers in the industry. This year, the survey garnered over 1,300 responses from executives nationwide -- the highest number of participants since the survey’s inception 16 years ago. Participants represent a sampling of casino and gaming executives from across North America and are diverse in terms of geography, executive responsibilities, years of experience and other meaningful criteria.

Conducted in cooperation with Spectrum Gaming (http://www.spectrumgaming.com), the survey includes rankings of the top 15 Gaming Employers of Choice, assesses Gaming Executive Career Optimism, and measures which regions respondents feel offer the greatest opportunities for advancement.

Highlights from the 2016 Casino Gaming Executive Satisfaction Survey:

  •     Two gaming operators, Seminole Hard Rock (last year’s favorite) and Penn National (the 2014 front runner) have tied for first place in Employer of First Choice
  •     Base compensation ranks highest in assessing overall job satisfaction
  •     For higher-paid executives, corporate culture and stock grants take precedence over base compensation
  •     Lesser-paid executives are more focused on personal advancement and a presumed goal of a salary increase
  •     Respondents with over five years of experience report a lower rate of job contentment than those with fewer than five years
  •     Weather and location are sacrificed to more important goals of career advancement and a salary increase

Asked to address the chart of weather and location in job satisfaction, Bristol Associates’ Ben Farber offers a possible explanation:

“The amount of job opportunities within the casino industry has increased as of late, however the market is still extremely competitive. As a result, many of the executives we have placed this year have sacrificed weather and lifestyle in order to rise in the ranks and obtain a higher salary.”
