    Interesting line of work but with little chance for professional growth.

    Senior Software Developer (Former Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsGet to work in a field (gaming/gambling) that is unusual and few people get to see. Lots of interesting and behind the scenes view into casinos.

    ConsYou will be worked hard and expected to be available for support at all hours of the night. You may have to travel at any given moment with very little notice.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShow more appreciation to employees that go the extra mile. Offer bonuses and stock to employees that put in extra time and effort or go above and beyond.

    OK place to work, but needs growth.

    Senior Software Developer (Current Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsLots to work on and it's pretty dynamic. Chances to work on a variety of technologies / platforms, so it never gets boring. Work / life balance is pretty good. Rewards are given more for success than for simply working hard.

    ConsNo real chance for career growth - company is stagnant and offers few opportunities to climb the corporate ladder.
    Not a place to come if you're a beginner - there is no training and most developers are too busy to show newbies the ropes.
    Not very much cooperation among teams or even within teams - everyone is out to prove that they are the indispensable team / developer, even if it means putting down good ideas simply because they did not think of them first (how else could we have 3 different developments for the SAME product).

    Advice to Senior ManagementFoster a more cooperative environment among people and teams. Growth growth growth (I know, easier said than done).

    Great market growth opporunities but lack of clear strategic vision and accountibility

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsTalented, fun, fearless people
    Huge potential for market growth
    Unique, interesting industry

    ConsLack of accountibility
    Poor strategic vision
    Poor communication from management to employees
    Lack of career advancement
    High stress mode of operation

    Advice to Senior ManagementBelieve in the company's potential and put more effort in trying to grow the company versus trying to unload the problems. Strong and clear strategic vision and leadership are greatly needed.

    Good job for a time

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood pay, and I learned a lot. They used cutting edge server and data base technology, interesting field. Good hiring practices.

    ConsExtreme number of late night support calls. Too many projects with too few engineers. Owners sons given free reign. Expected to provide poor customer service.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake Fewer projects, focus on a small set of core customers and make them extremely happy. Don't allow business development to promise features without consulting development.
