I worked at WMS Industries

Pros

Great work space, cool people, very cool products. WMS is on the cutting edge of the casino gaming industry and the people who work there are zealots about putting out innovative games.

Cons

In my opinion, the pay is a little low. WMS is making LOTS of money and I'm not seeing that trickle down to some of the folks in the trenches who are actually making the games. I think that the bonuses are pretty weak as well. It's pretty apparent that the sales people and those in Game Dev are the favored children.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Overall, I think the management teams are doing a fairly decent job. I would like to see some of the red tape and politics shaved down a bit. Also, the aforementioned, sharing of the wealth would be nice change of pace. It's a great place to work though and by and large I think the managers are good people.

    I have been working at WMS Industries full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits package
    Decent time off policy
    Fair to good overall compensation package
    Promote continuing/further education

    Cons

    Poor communication
    Too man chiefs, and not enough indians
    Lacking in overall leadership/direction of company
    Putting out different fires everyday
    union workforce

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take control and give direction. The overall direction of the company seems to be changing on a nearly monthly basis. We need to take the time to properly analize our sub tier suppliers abilities before making firm commitments. Also, we need less single sourcing.

    Pros

    Good product, loyal service workforce

    Cons

    Executive leadership, politics, non strategic thinking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think long term, rid yourself of WMS Sr Leadership (they drove it into the ground).
