    I have been working at Scientific Games full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Get some experience and then go someplace else...

    Cons

    No Promotions, No Personal grow, Bonuses are given in secret to those who are likable by management. If you have a family then say goodbye to them because you will be traveling everywhere dealing with lottery venues located at Gas Stations or Bars in dangerous places and neighborhoods where these tickets are sold or casinos in foreign countries where they are protected by armed men and then you have to deal with all the regulations in the lottery business and the underground mob seeking to infiltrate such business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give credit to employees and have the knowledge to evaluate them and keep in mind that they are overwhelmed by to many projects.

    I worked at Scientific Games full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Seven days on and Seven days off schedule.

    Cons

    Racist, Racist and Racist. This is in regard to the Alpharetta, GA location. Race dictates, work schedules support, fairness and personal human treatment. Disgusting! Fired after filing an EEOC complaint to address the aggressive and open policy of race discrimination and personal racial abuse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most of the foreign employees are told that they have no rights and that any employee must do as any Caucasian employee directs. Your company is still in the dark ages and someone will sue the hell out you eventually and make the disgusting practice of open abusive White Supremacy known to the nation and business community.

    I have been working at Scientific Games full-time

    Pros

    I liked working with many of my co-workers

    Cons

    Training was a joke. The management is rife with dilettantes. The is an astounding lack of fairness and equitability in how management treats non-management employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why give advice to those who will ignore it? Replace the homunculus that is the current CEO

    I have been working at Scientific Games full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Worked in the packaging department, the only good thing was that we would get 3 or 4 days off each week.

    Cons

    The packaging department would pick favorites. If you were a white, american person, they would let the leaders, yell and scream at you. And let them call you names.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should treat all people the same . You should not pick favorites.

    I worked at Scientific Games

    Pros

    Small teams. Team members treated well. Cool hardware technology at times. Goal of quality, even if goal isn't always met. Developers treated as authority.

    Cons

    Warned when I started that they ran a rotating door of employees. I was cut after 3rd layoff in 2 years. Win a state lottery - hire. Lose a state lottery - fire. Shop is packed with politics and in-house backstabbing. Experience soured one coworker so dramatically that he moved out of the country to escape "evil" companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shoot straight with people and hire contractors. Calm the infighting and politics. Value should represent ability and not who likes you.

    Location of facility is centrally located

    Cons

    Preferential Treatment

    Non-Diverse Workforce

    Dishonest Performance Reviews

    Flat-out Lies by Management

    Zero to None Career Advancement Opportunities

    No Cultivation of Employees

    Low Employee Moral

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You must implement a fair and equitable work environment where employees are evaluated on their performance only and nothing else. Scientific Games has never had an impartial work environment in the past, and will continue to operate this way due to upper management's good old boy mentality. People who deserve fair chances are not given the chances they deserve.
