    I worked at Bally Technologies part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people who work here are very helpful and willing to help you learn. The environment allows you to work on whatever you want to, even if you don't have skills in that area.

    Cons

    After a while the work becomes very repetitive, and can be boring. There is very little documentation on internal tools.

    decent benefits, vacation time, casual dress code, promotes learning, and decent pay

    depending on the departments, it can be like a cube farm where no one talks to each other unless you're in their "click" and speak their language...

    I have been working at Bally Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Dental, health insurance. Free buffet vouchers weekly to friends and family. Pit bosses are understanding. Flexible with time off.

    Cons

    There are no cons in working for Ballys other than the fact that upper management cannot relate to its workers on the floor.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers. Occasionally I've been made to work 12+ hour shifts. Of course you'll get tired and sloppy towards the end even possily making mistakes. Hire more staff!

    Pros

    Used to have family atmosphere, gender equality, creative projects, attitude of success

    Cons

    Before merger: pays lower than Vegas market value, office politics are childish, incompetent management
    After merger: New company has management that is driving the company out of solid production with poor technical choices while talking up their achievements. Pay is even worse than before with no benefits. Brain drain is breaking what used to be a great company.

    Advice to Management

    Put your ego away, focus on team, rise salaries
