"VEGAS.com is one of the most fun places I've worked - and I've run the gamut from college campus coffee shop to East Coast research firm to Silicon Valley start-up. There aren't many places that can claim regular celebrity office visits (including Wayne Newton, the cast of Cirque du Soleil, and Chippendales) as a company perk. Career-wise, this is a great place. VEGAS.com is experiencing tremendous growth, where multiple large deals with company-wide ramifications are announced together at staff meetings. Everyone at VEGAS.com excels at being flexible and reacting quickly to the market environment and company priorities as they evolve. The benefit of working in such a fast-paced environment is that there are many opportunities for professional growth -where those with initiative can take on critical roles and really shine."
