    I have been working at Multimedia Games full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some great people still left

    Cons

    There's definitely a difference between Multimedia Games and Everi Games.

    Advice to Management

    Stop doing what you're doing. Just about all of it.

    Pros

    MGAM used to be a great company and I have hopes that it will be again. Flexible work schedule good benefits, fun events and nice coworkers all make working here fun and rewarding.

    Cons

    Since our GCA acquisition, things have gone downhill. Fun events and employee YEI rewards systems have been cut, workloads have doubled and all of us have a sense that we're being used until they can feasibly get rid of us (despite many announcements to the contrary). Our executive team is more interested in a rushed pace to accommodate an arbitrary integration deadline than to take the time to get things right. This pace does not allow us to properly implement processes and complete testing which will leave us with system fallout issues for years to come. Work smarter is not a concept that is being demonstrated here recently.

    Advice to Management

    Stop killing the culture of the company you just paid big dollars to acquire. Communication is key and that doesn't mean standing in front of us for 15 minutes on an occasional visit while spouting announcements contrary to your actions. Allow both sides of our new team to demonstrate their skill rather than have them scurry through your unnecessarily quick deadlines for integration. All you are doing is making a bigger mess to clean up later most likely with your truly skilled staff already gone.

  6. "Interesting line of work but with little chance for professional growth."

    Pros

    Get to work in a field (gaming/gambling) that is unusual and few people get to see. Lots of interesting and behind the scenes view into casinos.

    Cons

    You will be worked hard and expected to be available for support at all hours of the night. You may have to travel at any given moment with very little notice.

    Advice to Management

    Show more appreciation to employees that go the extra mile. Offer bonuses and stock to employees that put in extra time and effort or go above and beyond.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Lots to work on and it's pretty dynamic. Chances to work on a variety of technologies / platforms, so it never gets boring. Work / life balance is pretty good. Rewards are given more for success than for simply working hard.

    Cons

    No real chance for career growth - company is stagnant and offers few opportunities to climb the corporate ladder.
    Not a place to come if you're a beginner - there is no training and most developers are too busy to show newbies the ropes.
    Not very much cooperation among teams or even within teams - everyone is out to prove that they are the indispensable team / developer, even if it means putting down good ideas simply because they did not think of them first (how else could we have 3 different developments for the SAME product).

    Advice to Management

    Foster a more cooperative environment among people and teams. Growth growth growth (I know, easier said than done).

    Believe in the company's potential and put more effort in trying to grow the company versus trying to unload the problems. Strong and clear strategic vision and leadership are greatly needed.

    I worked at Multimedia Games full-time

    Pros

    Professional work environment, lots of good hardware for the word needing to be done, good benefits and bonus

    Cons

    I really respected this place and all they offered to someone like me that wanted to stay in Austin and not go elsewhere for work. I was really happy until they hired on at least 2 people fired by a another company for drug use. These people were high at work, bragged about it according to the people from that company they were let go from, and by hiring them it has caused many very qualified people who might otherwise have wanted to come to Multimedia not want to apply or work here. I didn't know these guys before they showed, but their placement in spite of their past has cost our reputation.
