The salaries are adequate The benefit package is ok Flexible time off when you need it Location of facility is centrally located

Cons

Preferential Treatment Non-Diverse Workforce Hostile Work Environment Dishonest Performance Reviews Flat-out Lies by Management Zero to None Career Advancement Opportunities No Cultivation of Employees Low Employee Moral

Advice to Management

You must implement a fair and equitable work environment where employees are evaluated on their performance only and nothing else. Scientific Games has never had an impartial work environment in the past, and will continue to operate this way due to upper management's good old boy mentality. People who deserve fair chances are not given the chances they deserve.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    With over 4,900 employees, and loads of world-wide contracts, there is a lot of opportunity to move around and grow.

    Cons

    Current regime has lost touch with what made the company a well-respected leader. Being publically traded, the almighty dollar takes the front seat to anything else - period. Having their employees indicted or caught up in lottery scandals doesn't speak well for the current management style. The old regime never had any scandals, but they weren't publically traded either. Management is hard-edged. Aquistions and mergers, along with more contracts spreads employees thin. Employees are expected to do what is needed for the company first, regardless of personal consequences or hardships on family. This is an example of a company that grew by leaps and bounds at the sacrifice of employees. There is no return from the slippery slope of pleasing the shareholders.

    Advice to Management

    Get more personal with your customers and your employees. Don't manage via fear tactics. Become an advocate, not an enemy.
