      Deserved To Be Taken Apart

      Pros

      The benefits were above average except for the pay.

      Cons

      The management established their own personal fiefdoms and cliques. This meant that no matter how poor of an employee they were, they'd never get disciplined or given tough assignments. Hardworking employees wound up getting overworked and underpaid because of politics. It took ages for the mid-managers to be fired and only then could the troublemaking employees get taken care of. On top of that the mid-management provided false information to their employees about promotion opportunities with many people being lied about when it comes to jobs being filled or not filled. A very corrupt internal company culture.

      Pros

      Comfortable environment. Good benefits. Fun work.

      Cons

      Way too much middle management. Felt like nobody was really steering the ship or listening to feedback, which is weird because there was also plenty of micromanagement. Way too many "crisis moments".

      Pros

      Great work space, with nice location and great to work during summers. Lots of new ideas to work upon. Nice.

      Cons

      Limited opportunities, and work is routine with similar ideas being used redundantly. Work space inside the campus is not picturesque.

      Pros

      Fun co-workers, good work environment with great break room (pool tables, video games, Foosball etc.. ) gym, cafeteria.

      Cons

      Very little to no room for advancement. Company outlook does not look bright. Ever since the company was acquired by Scientific Games things have gone down hill at WMS tons of talented, loyal people have been let go in all departments. Management is not in tune with the employees and are making all the wrong decisions. As more and more people are let go, more is demanded from the employees and very little is done to show appreciation to the employees. Company outings were very common in the past but now it is rare to have one in a year.
