Pros

Good pay and benefits.
Better exposure to the gaming industry because company is a larger player.

Cons

Always playing catch up with competitors.
Sr. Management decisions are poor.
Indian Development Center is a disaster, U.S. teams always coming to the rescue.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire yourself. Absent that, please hire more people that actually have gaming or casino experience. Also, new U.S graduates are just as competent and will have a higher probability of making the job a career than Indian consultants.

    when it's good, it's very good - otherwise it's crap

    Pros

    great work life balance
    very talented people to work with
    generally a fun place to work
    people are overall pretty nice and welcoming
    great insight into gaming

    Cons

    two things help you move up: having an accent and being a man. Throw in being a caucasion and you are golden.
    lots and lots of people get overlooked regularly. It's the same people all the time who get recognized.
    Horrible silo problem - poor communication problems between departments. They've been working on it, at least.
    Morale sank a couple of years ago...thus far efforts to correct aren't working as well as they could.
    No hope for growth in most areas. Where you come in is where you'll stay.
    Never heard of anyone getting an amazing raise here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Notice your people -- all of them. Even the little guys. It's the difference between retaining great talent throughout the organization and consistent turnover. Spend less time bragging about what new top talent we got (leaving everyone to wonder how much they must be making) and more time nuturing the talent you already have.

    Pros

    If you can speak the political language you can fail to the top

    Cons

    If you want to improve anything make sure you can do it alone and others don't need to contribute

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan ahead instead of making everything an emergency
