I worked at Scientific Games

Pros

One can learn alot through trial and error @ SG. Also you will gain experience with the cutting edge technology. Money is not a problem so you will be compensated for your work and given the tools to do an effective job. The work environment is very close knit and personable. You will develop life long friendships and relationships. The benefits are great and very competitive compared to other manufacturing facilities. Even with all of the drawbacks SG is a great place to work. The location is excellent. There is constant growth and the sky is the limit for future of this company.

Cons

The amount of commitment is excessive due to the lack of capable people to step up to the plate. The management and leadership qualities could use some work. There is alot office politics and fear tactics used to ensure that you get the job done. Alittle more professionalism and tact by the upper management team will attract a more professional and talented market.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work on an effective succession plan to develop future leaders. Also think before you do things then you would not have to cover up all of the indiscretions later on.

    Pros

    WMS Gaming Chicago Pros:
    Cafe to eat breakfast and lunch
    Office culture
    Interesting and complex projects
    Great location
    Job security and stability

    Cons

    Uses traditional method for rating employees with a system restricted on how many people can 'exceed' expectations, meaning even those who might work really hard may only end with a 'meets expectations' simply because you cannot give out too many 'exceeds' ratings.

    Budget constraints on nice things for incentives to employees shrinks year by year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a reason why most attrition is due to finding a better opportunity. WMS needs to compete more against those 'better opportunities' and look like a better opportunity to outside groups.

    Pros

    Benefits, interesting work environment, and some co-workers are motivated but moved on quickly to another company

    Cons

    Opportunity to grow in the corporate location is possible, but not other facilities unless you are willing to move.
