    I have been working at Scientific Games

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Scientific Games full-time

    Pros

    The company is investing significant amounts of funds in acquisitions and new IT ERP systems. New management may lead to positive changes in the business dynamics.

    Cons

    While the company is investing in the future, they have no strategy and are not addressing the core issues. They are implementing a new ERP systems, but falling into the same bad historical patterns which they have in the past. Failing business models and lack of strategic orientation is leading to rapidly reducing profits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the old dead weight and bring in people with new ideas

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
