    Pros

    There are many types of positions. They have embedded hardware programming, game development, project managing, customer service reps., BI's , BA's warehouse workers who produce instant scratch tickets and many more.

    Cons

    Instead of just a thank you and a pat on the back, reward your employees with things of value. Things like promotions, good pay raises, bonuses for non-executive employees, higher contribution to 401k or something to that effect.

    Pros

    Working at Scientific Games, formally WMS Gaming, was a wonderful experience. Great industry with exciting and fun gaming products. The company is comprised of highly skilled and diverse employees with a fantastic culture. The Chicago office is particularly special with state-of-the-art architecture right on the Chicago River!

    Cons

    After two mergers, and subsequent lay-offs, the morale was extremely low and the culture became decayed.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your greatest asset...the people that make you great.
