I have been working at Scientific Games

Pros

Vacation time and paid holidays are numerous
Variable scheduling
Management is tolerant of a personal life
Good job if you are interested in learning

Cons

The pay is very low for the job
24/7 datacenter means a rotating shift
very few chances to advance in the company

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take charge of the employees, sometimes an employee just needs a kick in the butt to get the job done. There is a difference between being a leader and being a boss.

    I worked at Scientific Games

    Pros

    it was an okay job nothing too spectacular but had a lot of good benefits that came along with the job.

    Cons

    It was a headache dealing with the staff and management a few times. They just didnt get the idea of what we where supposed to accomplish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get a life. and stop pusing your ideals on other people that make no sense. This is 2009 for peets sake.

    I worked at Scientific Games

    Pros

    Nice management in Alpharetta. Great compensation. Lots going on. Has operations in pretty much every type of gaming. I loved the people.

    Cons

    The management in NY is risk-averse, and this stifles innovation. The company is maintaining too many systems due to acquisitions and long-term contracts, so this provides a second strike in terms of new types of content.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to take more risks. All of your product lines are in declining industries, and you need fresh models to stay viable. If you are in the New York office, you should spend much more time in Alpharetta.
