I have been working at Scientific Games full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Some groups are great, others are not. I am lucky to be a part of the former group, I work with a great team of people who genuinely care for each other. Very little micro management, visibility into upper management, and I get to work in some really interesting projects. If you play your cards right and work very hard, pay can be rewarding.

Cons

Resources can be extremely limited at times. Don't expect many perks -- basic benefits only here. Hiring and accessing additional resources can be downright excruciating. Culture of buyout rather than organic growth. Short term rather than long term focus.. Oh, and don't expect any quick promotions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Before you buy another company, think hard about the synergies and how all of it should actually fit together. This company is enormously fragmented in all areas -- do something to fix it. Reward hard working employees; it shouldn't be like pulling teeth. If you promise the world to your customers, be prepared to service their expectations.

    I worked at Scientific Games

    Pros

    Hard working employees
    Ok Salary compared to other employers
    Great location

    Cons

    Very, very inexperienced management on VP level
    Lack of clear direction or focus
    Poor health benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Majority of VPs do not work. They are hardly in the office, do not lead their teams, and do not know what's really going on. Promotions are only made when employees threaten to quit. Employees are not motivated to work. Please give your VPs some management training and hold them accountable before all your talent leaves!
