  1. Lots of cliques and silos. Individual contributions not acknowledged and people are a commodity.

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, good pay, standard benefits

    Cons

    Management will lie when it suits them. Little regard to the personal lives of employees. 50-60 hour weeks normal. Most projects START in emergency hard push time schedules. Plenty of folks with PM title, very little project management going on. Was in a "temporary" assignment for 5 years, never to get job title changed.

    Advice to Management

    The output of MS Project is NOT a project plan. If you hire project managers, actually listen to them about how to manage projects.

    Pros

    Follows a process/structure of work flow.

    Cons

    Forced to meet deadlines which results in poor quality. Expects employee to work 10 hrs per day.

    Advice to Management

    Bally technologies discriminate their employee a lot with regards to department. They have a low eye on the SQA department and does not consider SQA's for perks/bonuses whereas other/management enjoy the bonuses.

    Compensation package is extensive, great team environment. Challenging workload innovation is praised and acted upon.
