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

    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!
