    Huge potential, lousy sr management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    ProsI had the greatest boss in the world. I left after they laid him off.

    ConsSr mgmt. has no gaming experience and are proud of the fact. They make ridiculous decisions. Only Australian yes men get promoted. You worked daily wondering if today was the day you would get made "redundant"

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet some people with US gaming experience and listen to them. Get rid of they Ozzy yes boys.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Excellent at the beginning BUT?

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPeople you work with directly, pay was decent, usually got requested time off (except for certain busy periods)

    ConsManagement is horrible now. Like mentioned before, a rudderless titanic and all ship bosses are clueless. Scared to make a decision for fear of reprisal. Good ole boy mgt. workers are burning out from stress.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemember what you preached, it starts from the top. Fire yourselves you incompetent baboons. You have no problem blaming others and firing them but your incompetence goes unchallenged out of fear of reprisal.

    Decent Company as a whole but different departments may suck

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    ProsDecent Company as a whole, good benefits and pretty work space/toilets

    ConsDepending where you work aka department (not a small group the entire department) you will need to deal with marginally qualified micro managers. They have a cult like behavior pushed from their managers who pretty push all responsibilities down and blame team members for all the mishaps. You can do 1000 extra things but when you miss 1 thing in the 1000 items you get shamed.

    Limited career advancement as much of hiring/work is planned in India. This implies you may be working 2 jobs in 1. The US timezone and also later during the day

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen people started leaving it was already late, time is of the essence

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good company to learn new things but Management is a boys club

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood hours, Good pay, Great people to work with on your same level.
    Training is available though sometimes hard to get approved

    ConsManagement's skill is outdated. The people working for them know the best practices that are current and can be stymied by the outdated processes. There is a constant tug of war for power between Australia and America.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork better with the employees to allow them to advance. Don't pick favorites and give the best opportunities to them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Crazy

    Material Handler (Former Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    ProsBenefits and pay, working conditions might improve if they take the time to sort everything out,otherwise it's okay

    ConsManagement does not have a clue
    Being a "valued employee" for 5 plus years,perfect attendance, requested PTO, it was denied,they knew the importance of the time off requested

    Advice to Senior ManagementClean house with middle mgmt..... need more diversity ... give working employees an opportunity to advance,instead of putting the "friends of friends" in positions that they know nothing of.

    Potentially good company - Very high turnover- Poorly managed.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    ProsGenerally good people in the ranks, decent pay. Good facilities. Good working environment. Community involvement programs. Good design and development technology.

    ConsPoor morale. Poor senior management. Don't plan on staying long. If you don't leave on your own, you'll generally be shown the door within a few years. The programs designed to change the culture are just window dressing. Lots of politics.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide genuine leadership.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Senior leadership disaster. They constant undermine each other for personal gain.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe middle managers and below work really hard. Really good team works amongst this level of managers.

    ConsDealing with the slowing moving, short sighted, not on the same page Senior level executives. Have the head office is not helpful. All major players in the industry are US based.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire some good leaders

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
