    Listen more to employees and don't act like that you know better than they. Don't give work to outside contractors who are personal friends

    I have been working at Scientific Games full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The compensation is good and benefits are competitive. The Company continues to grow with mergers.

    Cons

    The company continues to grow with merger at the expense of good employees that are still not valued. There is a lack of professional growth opportunities, work-life balance is not a priority. Employee value is different from department to department but until competent updated management gets in place - things will not change.

    Advice to Management

    The problems that this company has had over the years have not been solved and the current CEO seems to just be taking the company backwards from a culture perspective from some of the recent moves that are being made. Still lots of problems and issues that seem to be getting overlooked.
