    I worked at Shuffle Master full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There were great people to work with in every department. Work hours were flexible, and there was opportunity for growth

    Cons

    Communication wasn't always the best, but it improved. Didn't feel money was always well spent but when the company was making money, that wasn't an issue.

    Pros

    Most gaming companies are lifeless and dull. ShuffleMaster is staffed with intelligent and passionate people. The pay is very competitive, and for such a large company has a wonderful small company feel.

    Cons

    Not a place to get lost in the SHUFFLE.

    Pros

    To get a foot into the gaming and/or manufacturing industry. Cut your teeth and then bail.

    Cons

    Extreme cronyism, lack of respect unless you are in the Ivory Tower, thouroughly mismanaged and fiscally irresponsible.

    The arrogance and complaceny levels of upper management are quite hard to fathom, especially in this economic environment. These actions have been going on for a while without any sign of letting up.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and listen to the new board member that was recently brought onboard. Even though it may be too late, try to be more open with employees and customers.

    Pros

    If you need a job and happen to get hired, take it, but continue your job search.

    Cons

    Long hours, low employee morale, and low salaries. Shuffle is "top heavy" in that they pay their senior executives high salaries and pay the employees who actually do the work towards the low end of the pay scale. There is a lot of voluntary turnover across all departments, though it has slowed down recently due to the slowdown in the economy.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management is out of date and out of touch. More growth from within will improve employee morale, and in the long run, company performance. A viable training/mentoring program would also help to improve the company. Essentially, management does not invest in it's own people, yet it's the best investment they could possibly make.

    Treat all peers as equals
