    Pros

    Benefits, but that can be outsourced. HR watch your back.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment. Don't work here! Management is clueless. Execs make over a million $ per year and you suck in their minds. JC, you need to rethink your strategy because you are anathema in the rest of gaming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of JC. He is cancer!

    Pros

    Stable company, leading technology with some talented individuals working at the lower levels. Hopefully the acquisition leadership added will help with the past legal issues.

    Cons

    Growing too fast, top level leadership have questionable ethics, all locations are treated differently with no overall company goal or culture. Promotions and increases go to those in the "in" crowds. No work/life balance. Many personal relationships fueling the business decisions. Comp and promotions not consistent among all locations. Good employees are worked hard and there seem to be no concern when they leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New management needed!

    Pros

    Nice people below management. Padding words

    Cons

    Instead of laying you off, they will find some way to fire you and you'll be escorted out by the guards. I saw several very good people treated that way. Now this said everything I wanted to say, but they impose a silly minimum word standard. This last two sentences are absolutely meaningless, but are padding the the word count

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your employees.

    With the recent acquisition of Shufflemaster, everything seems to be on hold.

    I have been working at Bally Technologies

    Pros

    Great schedule, decent pay, and benefits are just OK and at least with some departments they do provide company transport.

    Cons

    Company has become stagnant putting a hold on everything since acquiring shufflemaster. Even before the acquisition was final, they wouldn't spend the money they needed to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your ducks in a row. You have good employees who are getting pushed to the side because you havent gotten things done in the last year.

    Pros

    Bally is the industry leader in Gaming Systems and Tables. Very stable company, no fear of the company going under. The Sr. Management encourages promotion from within, so you can advance your career quite well if you're hungry!

    Cons

    The expectation is that you get the job done, regardless of how many hours it takes to succeed... this can lead to a strain in the work-life balance. Also, the downside of them promoting from within, is that they don't have to pay as high of salaries to those who are being promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay competitive salaries to the people who you are depending on!

    I worked at Bally Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    My coworkers were awesome, we had lot's of new technology to use and learn, my specific section spent money on labs (although I know this wasn't the case in other parts of the company).

    Cons

    No career movement unless you're a "favorite". When I was initially hired, I was promised a promotion after one year. Needless to say, that never happened after numerous years and I'm in the same position I was in when I first came on board. Bally expects employees to be available to them at all times. Management also feels you owe them something because they hired you. There isn't clear direction in moving forward as a whole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees are your most valuable resource. Measuring their worth goes beyond a tangible number on an accounting statement. My promotion was delayed for months (and still is which ultimately led to my resignation) due to "tough times" in the organization, but every VP (seriously, every. single. one.) was promoted to Senior VP.
