    I worked at WMS Gaming (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Comfortable environment. Good benefits. Fun work.

    Cons

    Way too much middle management. Felt like nobody was really steering the ship or listening to feedback, which is weird because there was also plenty of micromanagement. Way too many "crisis moments".

    Advice to Management

    Fire half of yourselves, please.
