    Pros

    Great place to work. Everyone is nice and understanding. There is a social event almost every Friday. It really feels like an Start Up at times.

    Cons

    I worked there during a period of transition. So was a lot of turn over but I felt it was an isolated event..

    Pros

    Goo salary and perks. Good for people who are ready to travel, specially if you are working with Systems.

    Cons

    Systems only for people who can sacrifice with personal life and willing to travel as much as 70% of the time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to motivate people by relaxing travel expense procedures and showing constant growth

    I worked at Bally Technologies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, reasonable salary, good people. The corporate events were kinda lame, and few and far between. The in office perks were pretty basic - coffee , tea, and water. Anything else was vending machines. But the people were great!

    Cons

    Upper management is totally disconnected from the lower levels. The middle anagement was super smart, with great ideas of their own and their people, but getting the approval from above was often impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The people that are doing the work are the ones to whom you need to listen. That's where the value is coming from. The sales people can sell snow to Eskimos, but you need the things to sell.

    Pros

    Bally is the industry leader in Gaming Systems and Tables. Very stable company, no fear of the company going under. The Sr. Management encourages promotion from within, so you can advance your career quite well if you're hungry!

    Cons

    The expectation is that you get the job done, regardless of how many hours it takes to succeed... this can lead to a strain in the work-life balance. Also, the downside of them promoting from within, is that they don't have to pay as high of salaries to those who are being promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay competitive salaries to the people who you are depending on!
