    I worked at Scientific Games full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working at Scientific Games, formally WMS Gaming, was a wonderful experience. Great industry with exciting and fun gaming products. The company is comprised of highly skilled and diverse employees with a fantastic culture. The Chicago office is particularly special with state-of-the-art architecture right on the Chicago River!

    Cons

    After two mergers, and subsequent lay-offs, the morale was extremely low and the culture became decayed.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your greatest asset...the people that make you great.

    Electrical Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Las Vegas, NV
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Scientific Games (Las Vegas, NV) in February 2017.

    Interview

    It was fairly easy. Basic questions about projects and experience listed on the resume. First interview was with the manager, then the team members and the VP of the department. During the first interview, the manager showed me around the workplace and explained what I will be doing. It was a nice experience.

    Interview Questions

    • If you design a PCB and it doesn't work when it is fabricated, what are your next steps to rectify the mistake?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I negotiated the salary and we both settled half way. I would recommend to research about the payscale online and have a number in mind.
