No opinion of CEO

I worked at WMS Gaming as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

WMS offers a friendly, relaxed environment for all employees. They take the "work hard, play hard" motto to heart with a lot of great perks for their employees, including a willingness to assist employees that have gone through hardships in their lives such as floods, tornadoes, and fire. The atmosphere is young and modern, making it a fantastic place to work for people under 40. Compensation is generally market value and the company is constantly striving to make itself better. The Chicago campus is amazing with the newest technology, in-house cafe that serves good food, a modern gym, and several gaming systems for breaks.

Cons

As with most major companies, WMS has issues with fully embracing change that will improve their products/operations and management tends to fall back on the older ways of doing things because that is what they are familiar with. Contractors, while treated well overall, are not invited to most company events, which can create a division between contractors and employees in certain departments. Many departments play the blame-game, shifting responsibility for failures onto other departments or even worse, refusing to fix the problems that have been pointed out and will result in product failure in testing.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at WMS Gaming full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company is great. They care about your fitness. They have a great cafeteria. They generally want you to be happy.

    Cons

    There are way too many managers. I'm not kidding. There will sometimes be 5-10 developers to a project and 30 managers. Not a lot of work or innovation ever gets through.
