    Pros

    Many coworkers were fun people and good to work with, but that depends which department you had to deal with. The people in Tech Services and in D&D are as much like a family as a company/department can be. IT Department tried hard.

    Cons

    There is so much finger pointing and bullying by Accounting and Sales, it has an uninvolved HR department, and a lot of people with the "It's not my job" attitude, it all really gets in the way of what could be accomplished with a corporate culture having the right mind set. Also, promotion is difficult, if not next to impossible, if you are not a Caucasian male from Australia...with New Zealand and S. Africa being the next runners up. Low on the pay scale.

    Advice to Management

    HR should stop ignoring the bad behavior, and the company overall would do better if it stopped blindly promoting only the glad handers and good old Aussie boys, or bringing in new management from outside. It's very disheartening to long time employees who are doing all the work, but get passed over again and again for promotions.

    Pros

    This is the best gaming company to work for in Las Vegas. They offer competitive salaries and I really like the location of the Amigo office. They offer good job security, which is something that Bally and IGT cannot say recently.

    Cons

    The company is pretty top heavy. There are more managers than workers in a lot of departments.

    Pros

    Okay remuneration (compensation and bonus) and benefits package. Competitive in terms of compensation with matching 401k benefits. You are encouraged to manage your work and be able to perform at your full potential.

    Cons

    Professional growth and advancement for employees is very slow. Appears like there is very little area to move into another position in the software side as jobs are being outsourced to India or other countries which causes low employee morale. Some departments have very high turn overs which making thing worst as new personnel comes in and attempts to perform the job. No proper management and discipline of under performing employees and no apparent system to reward employees that are top performing, most are based as a team which goes back to under performing are not being managed and disciplined and causes the team to fail from achieving the goal and thus no recognition or rewards,

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees from the least level and not only to the favorables. And be fair in the compensation and recognition of employees.
