    I have been working at Cadillac Jack full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people are great; we are allowed to do our jobs without interference, and the atmosphere is laid back and fun.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is hard to know what is going on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more and don't try to be sneaky

    I worked at Cadillac Jack full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    At the time I was there, the products were cool and I was surrounded, for the most part, by talented and good hearted people. Compensation was fair and benefits were reasonable for the 3 years of my employment.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is tough depending on what group you work in. Company politics rule decisions and employees often feel micromanaged and untrusted. No defined career paths and no training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management has to create a vision, communicate the vision, and stick to it. Trust the people that you hire and let them do their work. It is OK to be surrounded by people smarter than you! Consider what you can learn rather than be threatened by others opinions.

    Pros

    Great people, nice offices, decent benefits.

    Cons

    Few opportunities to advance in position and pay, no raises and weak bonuses or increases, training requests denied year after year, lacking investment in infrastructure. Senior Management overwhelmed, some due to micromanagement. Continue to lose some of our best and have high turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your staff or hire people you trust and do not need to micromanage. Remember Your people invest in you everyday they chose to walk through your doors answer that by investing in them and the infrastructure that supports their work.

    I have been working at Cadillac Jack full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fairly stable work. Hours are relaxed. Most people are down to earth and friendly. Very little turnover until recently. Easy commute.

    Cons

    Flat salaries. Cost of living raises instead of merit increases. A bonus plan tied to an ever higher profit goal. A rather incompetent and poisonous HR department. Recent turnovers on the rise as headcount freezes and higher production goals force us to eliminate the dead weight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your people are the reason for your success. Treat them better. Pay them more. The competition is recruiting your employees and paying a lot more.

    Pros

    You can potentially win an IPad or various other dangling carrots for writing a good review on Glassdoor. This company has lost it's way. You will currently experience horrible politics, thanks to the hiring of the Bob's from I.G.T. These people really need a clue. This company is on the right path to failure. Do yourself a favor and avoid this company, unless you really want to teach yourself a life lesson.

    Cons

    Everything about this company has become a dead end. The company was once wonderful, until they were acquired by AMAYA. Now they are a cut-throat organization that oppresses their employees and sets them up to fail. I have no doubt this company will fail. There is no real success behind their motives. Success isn't the money or the titles... Apparently people still haven't learned this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advise to management will undoubtedly fall on deaf ears. So, this message is for everyone who chooses to hear. Stop allowing fear and greed to run your lives. Either be a positive model for your peers and those you are hired to lead or quit, because you can't seriously be happy or successful playing into the hand of wicked men. You have no security. You're security and title is an illusion.
    All the money in the world will not bail you out. If you want success, you must stand up against that which isn't motivated by true success. I say this and I'm a former employee. You lost some of the best people ever. Some of us are going onto to better things and environments that will recognize us for the wonderful talents we offer. Maybe even competitors that will rub your faces in your mess with the very people you let go.

    I worked at Cadillac Jack

    Pros

    When I started it was a good company with great management and the co-workers we're all great. A real team environment with a positive atmosphere.

    Cons

    As soon as the company was bought by a larger one, management was changed and everything went down hill. It was like watching a something really good break and fall apart for the worst, its a slave camp basically now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cadillac Jack has too many middle men/management.. too many cooks in the kitchen makes for a bad product; especially if the middle management constantly changes their mind about what they want and refuse to admit to it.

    Pros

    Talented people to work with, good benefits, good mix of oversight/autonomy. I like the location of the office where I work.

    Cons

    Expectations can be hard to pin down on occasion. The style and artistic vision feels a bit narrow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have great talent. Trust them a bit more.

    Pros

    Pleasant environment. Much attention to employee satisfaction - HR pays at least as much attention to retention as they do to recruitment. Lots of efforts to improve various aspects of employees' life. Outside of HR, much is done to make everyone feel like they matter and given opportunity to participate in company success. I don't work in HR, btw.

    Cons

    Never enough Mini-Moos for the coffee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give everyone in HR a big "Thumbs Up!" this bonus season.

    Pros

    Friendly creative environment that allows for career growth. It has been a great place to grow and gain experience, as the company has transformed greatly from it's small-medium sized basis to a new larger corporate direction. The perks of being able to see your product in the field is incredibly satisfying. The creative aspects of the company are both a refreshing and interesting challenge. Also incredibly lucky to have such a great feeling of community with my coworkers.

    Cons

    As we grow, there is a bit more corporate mentality to swallow, but I think our managers do a good job in doing their best to represent the members of the teams.
