Pros

If you are highly motivated and document all your own achievements and communicate them outside of your management channel you stand a good chance for advancement.

Cons

HR is completely incompetent and is comprised of individuals who lack the experience or background to be in those roles.
There are many incidents where they are led on witch hunts and manipulated by employees that are known to be on the hot seat.
Senior management oft times lacks any insight to anything at the director and below level.

There are far too many clique groups and internal fraternization is ridiculous.
Best to avoid Bally Technologies until the Manhattan management group is done driving the product into resale.

Advice to Management

Take some interest in middle management and get some quality hires.
Perhaps its time to get rid of the stale management and get a refresh.
Show the HR team the door and get some qualified people to actually be a resource to the company and not merely a tool for mob.

    Pros

    High tech, fast-paced challenging environment. Something is always changing which is a good thing. Bally is the number one name in slot machines and gaming systems. The other companies are just wannabees.

    Cons

    Horrible starting salaries and even for those in mid-career. Now, top management pays themselves really well. If you are an outsider or a female, forget about ever hitting a six digit salary; unless you use binary based numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize talent. Fire everyone who was involved with the India experiment.
