    I worked at Shuffle Master full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There were great people to work with in every department. Work hours were flexible, and there was opportunity for growth

    Cons

    Communication wasn't always the best, but it improved. Didn't feel money was always well spent but when the company was making money, that wasn't an issue.

    I have been working at Shuffle Master

    Pros

    Most gaming companies are lifeless and dull. ShuffleMaster is staffed with intelligent and passionate people. The pay is very competitive, and for such a large company has a wonderful small company feel.

    Cons

    Not a place to get lost in the SHUFFLE.

    I worked at Shuffle Master

    Pros

    To get a foot into the gaming and/or manufacturing industry. Cut your teeth and then bail.

    Cons

    Extreme cronyism, lack of respect unless you are in the Ivory Tower, thouroughly mismanaged and fiscally irresponsible.

    The arrogance and complaceny levels of upper management are quite hard to fathom, especially in this economic environment. These actions have been going on for a while without any sign of letting up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and listen to the new board member that was recently brought onboard. Even though it may be too late, try to be more open with employees and customers.

    It would be a great place to work if management would invest in its people.

    I worked at Shuffle Master

    Pros

    If you need a job and happen to get hired, take it, but continue your job search.

    Cons

    Long hours, low employee morale, and low salaries. Shuffle is "top heavy" in that they pay their senior executives high salaries and pay the employees who actually do the work towards the low end of the pay scale. There is a lot of voluntary turnover across all departments, though it has slowed down recently due to the slowdown in the economy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management is out of date and out of touch. More growth from within will improve employee morale, and in the long run, company performance. A viable training/mentoring program would also help to improve the company. Essentially, management does not invest in it's own people, yet it's the best investment they could possibly make.

    Pros

    Not many. Benefits are ok.

    Cons

    Most of the employees are old school. Unprofessional and uneducated. There are even people who were arrested that still work there. Looks like we may even have a pedophile or two working there as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who can advance the company.

    I have been working at Shuffle Master

    Pros

    Middle management and below are a close knit group of people who have a common goal in mind, and will reach out to help each other to achieve desired objectives.

    Cons

    Inner circle who only promote their favourite personnel. Very Political. Promotions are not based on achievements. Culture shift wont occur until Management is revamped and those that have been with the company more than 10 years are cut loose. Majority of management have limited experince in working in other companies so they don't know how to think outside the box. Always playing catchup on new technologies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management are too arrogant to recieve advice so this advice is to the Board of Directors. Clean house if you want Shuffle Master to be the most innovative Table Game Company in the world.

    I have been working at Shuffle Master

    Pros

    The employee base is very hard working and supportive of each other. There is a sense of team among the employee base to overcome new challenges that are encountered as a result of senior management decisions. The benefits package is rather strong compared to others in Las Vegas.

    Cons

    The culture is one of long hours, unrealistic goals, and opportunity for advancement is rare. Politics drive your opportunity to move up in the organization rather than strong performance or ability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's amazing what a company can accomplish when senior leadership at a company sees its employees as partners rather than enemies. Senior management indicated that it is interested in a culture shift, but doesn’t seem to grasp that they need to embrace the change too. It doesn’t matter how much the rest of the company embraces change if the company’s decision makers don’t modify their behavior.
