I have been working at Bally Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

pay is okay but doin more work that not part of job.

Cons

poor training, clueless department director, poor quality of games that got to be reworked in the field (we need to be paid for doing production work tooo). if leen was working why ain't the quality getting better. no training an support for doin systems mess now that is just as bad as the games.

Advice to Management

techs are the in the know about the customers issues but nobody listens and its politics as usual about promotions. this is sad.

    Pros

    If you want to travel and see the world, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    No chance for promotion or advancement.
    Bally does not value its employees.
    Excessive travel; 100% for some positions, but they do not tell you that during the interview.
    If you want a personal ‘family’ life, Bally will not make the easy. Upper management puts their family second and their career first and they expect the same from all employees.
    No internal training of any kind.
    Sink or swim environment.

    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.
