    Current Employee - Senior Network Engineer in Alpharetta, GA
    Current Employee - Senior Network Engineer in Alpharetta, GA

    I have been working at Scientific Games full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Get some experience and then go someplace else...

    Cons

    No Promotions, No Personal grow, Bonuses are given in secret to those who are likable by management. If you have a family then say goodbye to them because you will be traveling everywhere dealing with lottery venues located at Gas Stations or Bars in dangerous places and neighborhoods where these tickets are sold or casinos in foreign countries where they are protected by armed men and then you have to deal with all the regulations in the lottery business and the underground mob seeking to infiltrate such business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give credit to employees and have the knowledge to evaluate them and keep in mind that they are overwhelmed by to many projects.

    Pros

    the work can be challenging due to many regulations of the Business. GAMBLING

    Cons

    The Network Design & Implementation has a very high turn over. No opportunity for Education or advancement. Some minority guys working in here still have the same title of Junior Engineers since they were hired many years ago. All original Management staff left and now Network Design & Implementation is being managed by other company staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    invest in your people and train them a little, hire more IT people. Give a chance to every engineer working at the IT dept. Not just the guys you like.......

    Pros

    I liked working with many of my co-workers

    Cons

    Training was a joke. The management is rife with dilettantes. The is an astounding lack of fairness and equitability in how management treats non-management employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why give advice to those who will ignore it? Replace the homunculus that is the current CEO

    Pros

    Seven days on and Seven days off schedule.

    Cons

    Racist, Racist and Racist. This is in regard to the Alpharetta, GA location. Race dictates, work schedules support, fairness and personal human treatment. Disgusting! Fired after filing an EEOC complaint to address the aggressive and open policy of race discrimination and personal racial abuse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most of the foreign employees are told that they have no rights and that any employee must do as any Caucasian employee directs. Your company is still in the dark ages and someone will sue the hell out you eventually and make the disgusting practice of open abusive White Supremacy known to the nation and business community.

    Checks don't bounce. That's about it.

    Cons

    Everything else. People on here giving them more than one star must be in management. The worst place I ever worked for. Would not recomened this job to anyone. If you quit to come here it would be a terrible mistake. Stay away!

    Pros

    Pretty good pay and benefits. Work is somewhat varied, so it's different from time to time. It is fun working with lottery applications.

    Cons

    The organization in Atlanta is somewhat disorganized; I'm not sure that upper management really is aware of what goes on at lower levels

    Pros

    The work can be interesting. There is a lot of opportunity to learn many facets of the lottery industry.

    Cons

    Management seems to be directionless at times. There is a tendency to over promise and under deliver to the client.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't try and do it all in house. Things like designing information interfaces should be hired out and left to the experts.
