    WMS Gaming is the same Company as Scientific Games In Alpharetta, GA

    Senior Network Engineer (Current Employee) Alpharetta, GA (US)

    ProsThe work and responsibilities at this company can be very challenging due to Gaming and lottery Business. WMS a company located in Chicago was taken over by Scientific Games in late 2013

    ConsNow the Scientific Games is advertising Network Engineer positions using a different name WMS Gaming inc. This WMS and Scientific Games are the same company. Many regulations due to state rules and underground undesirable business competition. Be careful here

    The Network Design & Implementation has a very high turn over. No opportunity for Education or advancement. Some minority guys working in here still have the same title of Junior Engineers since they were hired many years ago. All original Management staff left and now Network Design & Implementation is being managed by other company staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate people working under a lot of stress and visiting dangerous locations local and international to set up lottery machines.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Best of times yet worse of times

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPersonal relationships in a carefree environment regarding company and shareholder success - people recruited into company more on safety of hire than on ability to replace management team

    ConsPolitical culture that does not understand how to learn from mistakes - meetings to discuss and plan next meeting - too many cooks making the broth

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more on shareholder needs than management rewards - communicate with a purpose in mind - recognize internal customers - realize that you're a software company and not a manufacturer

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
