    I worked at TCS John Huxley (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Talented young development team
    - Exciting products that put a spin on the traditional casino industry

    Cons

    - Poor management structure and leadership
    - Limited
    - Dogmatic senior development create an environment that reduces innovation
    - Minimal communication and transparency within the business
    - Very limited opportunities for growth
    - Negative working environment, with unhappy staff and bullying leaders

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate the senior development team and audit their performance. Spend more time to understand the development team and where they would like to grow as a team and individuals. Be product and market led, not development led.

    I worked at TCS John Huxley full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are some really talented and dedicated people working at the company.

    Cons

    The company has the right ideas but the wrong execution. Systems/BI has never (historically) been in the companies DNA until recently therefore they have no idea who's valuable or not. The developers run/drive the product lifecycle instead of Product Manager, therefore they can do whatever they want, whenever they want and no one else knows what's being done or why (no structure). The developers tell Product Management what's going to change instead of the other way around. There's too much bureaucracy and not enough colaboration between the different regions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on hiring BDM's to just to sell sell sell and start focusing on the actual products. Hire Product Managers that actually know Systems and have them drive the Product Life Cycle and not the developers that make changes on a whim with no regard as to how that might affect the product roadmap and planned installs.
