      Pros

      Friendly, creative and collaborative working environment with a great culture. Really feel my work is valued and that I'm a part of a big team. Also feel like the work-life balance is appreciated as well as my personal time. Company is seeing really positive growth due to increase in clients and expanding into new territories.

      Cons

      Work wise, I'm happy. Only complaint is that the office is far from my home!

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great people to work with, very helpful and always open. Company culture is pretty good. Very diverse teams spread across the world. Lack of office politics. Senior management does engage on regular basis and keeps the company up to date with what is happening in other divisions. Decent training program , but most learning happens on the job. Very lucky to have had good seniors on the team to teach and guide.

      Cons

      Work is not as interesting. Working on the product can be quite frustrating and repetitive. Pressure to deliver quickly affects the quality of the work being done. It feels as though the company has bitten off more than it can chew. Salary is not the best.

      Former Employee

      It was a great place to work until it was bought by Scientific Games...

      Sep 11, 2020 - Senior Systems Administrator in Chiswick, England

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The best thing about the organisation was the people. It may have grown to 2000 people in 23 countries, but it still, on occasion, felt like a startup. Summer in Chiswick Park was always great and there was usually a few people to get beer with.

      Cons

      After finding out that the new-to-us SG CFO was of the opinion that "We don't invest in IT because it doesn't generate a profit" it all started going downhill and everyone who could leave, did so. Because what is a technology company without IT to drive it. Now it has been dragged back to the 90's complete with an overflow of middle-management.

      All about the money - It's a Non-Technical Company

      Pros

      - Normal corporate benefits - Normal salaries

      Cons

      If you are in a place were paying you on time and giving you normal benefits, such as 14 salaries, paid time-off, flexible hours, starts to be considered Pros, then you are in the wrong company. There is a huge lack of responsibility for several technical matters, people holding the pure management positions have no serious experience or skills. In reality, that leads to a place were everybody has an opinion, but nobody takes responsibility. It is a major problem to solve and I do think it can be solved unless people that have key roles are changed/replaced. You cannot have Senior Management with degrees and background in anything else but Software Engineering, just because they come cheaper or because nobody else will come to work for you. You need to step up and take this seriously. The most obvious to an engineer is that Product Managers are more than actual engineers, which does not make sense. Especially, when you lack people to test software or you delay big customer projects.

      Bad management decisions

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      In normal circumstances it is generally a good place to work. Flexible working schedule, good work/life balance, nice working environment.

      Cons

      At the time of need (COVID-19 crisis), the company didn't seem to care about its employees and took immediate actions to reduce its loss by firing people, reducing payments and applying furloughs.
