Suggestions for improvement

  • Start treating your staff like human beings. Listen to them and provide some guidance. Put some effort into finding out what is going on in the dept instead of your own self-interests. Provide bonuses for employees below exec and upper management level. Double check the qualifications of those who have CPA licenses but are unregistered which is a violation of NYS rules and requirements.

What I like about the company

Casual attire for non-race days, adequate off-street parking, Belmont Park is gorgeous, decent benefits comparable to most companies, the company puts money into your HSA account if you go that route, coffee is free, Aqueduct is next door to Resorts World Casino, lots of great friendly coworkers, opportunity to see the infamous and exciting Belmont Stakes in person each year in exchange for helping out. Some departments outside of finance recognize their employees and promote them quickly.

What I dislike about the company

Dishonest and unprofessional management. Staff will never receive even a simple thank you for great accomplishments while being constantly criticized and harshly and inappropriately insulted for insignificant things. Management does not help their employees and consistently show up 40mins to an hour late every day and then either leave early or at 5pm on the dot. Management makes significant mistakes and never accepts responsibility for them instead choosing to blame their staff.

  • Need to place greater emphasis on employee satisfaction and commitment to being an admired brand.

What I like about the company

Rotated between tracks throughout the year so it never got stagnant. Also tell to Saratoga for summer meet was both perk and work.

What I dislike about the company

Not well managed. Constantly critiqued. Perpetually in scandals.

Support from management

My new boss knew me for approx 3 weeks and fired me. Claiming a reorganization

Suggestions for improvement

  • The company should be run by educated managers. Not retired cops, bartenders and friends of management. That's why the racetrack is going down the tubes.

What I like about the company

I loved the "family" atmosphere. Traveling track to track gets you close to your co-workers.

What I dislike about the company

I don't like the disregard for the seniority the employees earned. Myself as well as many others worked there 30 plus years were let go due to a reorganization. Almost made it to my retirement date by 10 months short. They ruthless when they tire of you.
