    I worked at Scientific Games full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is a lot of opportunity for growth. It is also fun working for a gaming company and seeing all the content. The office in Chicago is amazing with an on-site gym and basketball court.

    Cons

    Communication between Lottery, Gaming and Interactive groups could be better. With it being a large company, it can be hard to initiate change at times.

    Advice to Management

    Focusing on developing and growing your people, especially your high potential ones. Get profitable.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are great compared to other companies. 2018 benefits are even better- they show the company really cares. I love my coworkers. Advancement opportunities and pay are very competitive.

    Cons

    There are culture issues. Telecommuting, perks, and morale (among other things) are disproportionate across all locations. A lot of people work ridiculous hours and aren’t be recognized for their effort. I say this but overall- the company is great and has potential to be greater.

    Advice to Management

    If high-performers want to telecommute, let them- it’s 2017. Add day of giving back- people want to add purpose. Address rumors before they start.

    I worked at Scientific Games full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    the people you work directly with, down on your level, are usually great. Everyone I ever worked with on a team were knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly.

    Cons

    basically everything else. This place used to be a great place to work, back when it was just WMS. When SG came in, they started cutting corners to save a buck and moral and benefits have been sliding downhill ever since. There's a distinct feeling that SG doesn't care that much about its people, and that's a damn shame. WMS knew to value its workers, its talent. SG has no idea that taking care of its employees is important. We'll go find someone else that does.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees!! And stop feeding everyone sugar-coated lies. We can see right through it and most people aren't happy. You won't get the best work out of your employees if you continue to treat them badly.
