Bally use to be a great place to work but now it is Scientific Games
Director (Current Employee) – Nevada – June 16, 2016
Quote from senior management: "I would rather an employee quit than to have them transfer out of my department." This clearly relays two things. SG does not care about their employees and that they do not have any career advancement within the company.

The workplace is good. Asians are not being treated fairly when it comes to work advancements especially on filipinos. People that works hard stays where they are and the people that don't work hard, advances.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – June 24, 2015
Bally Technologies is an amazing company to work for. Alot of kind and courteous people work there and everyone in the human resources department are absolutely wonderful. No matter what anyone through out the whole company is ready and willing to bend over backward to help anyone who needs it.
I worked for Bally for 17yrs. Was let go when they were purchased by Scientific Games. I don't hold Bally any wrong, as it was a business decision. Though I will miss all the people I worked for. The company overall was great to work with. They worked you hard, but paid well. Open schedule if you need to go to the doctor or run an errand. The people were great to work for. They seemed a little management heavy, but management took care of you...can't say how it is with scientific games though.

Responsibilities: Creating part numbers Creating warehouse locations Creating serial numbers Opening work orders Closing work orders Inventory adjustments Cycle counts Creating PO's Creating pick tickets Creating 5 part manufacturing tickets Creating finished product tickets Maintaining finished product locations
While I was in this position at Bally's I was responsible with the help of my boss for implementing new processes that reduced warehouse pick times and in doing so we increased production. When I started it took 62 minutes to produce one slot machine. By the time I finished the production time for one slot machine was only 22 minutes.
Support Specialist (Current Employee) – Egg Harbor Township, NJ – June 18, 2015
Most enjoyable part of my job is helping others resolve their IT issues. I've learned the Unix based operating system. A typical day's work is helipng others, customers and coworkers to resolve customers' IT issues.
Firmware Engineer I (Former Employee) – Reno, NV – September 15, 2014
Many of the people I worked with had been at the company for 7+ years. However, they were still working the same job as when they started. The company was recently purchased, and many people were laid off. Where the company is going now is anyone's guess. The gaming world itself is in decline in the US, so these companies are having trouble growing at all, and will probably contract over time.
beautiful area, somewhat relaxed atmosphere, people are good
mediocre pay, mediocre time off, one would certainly need other hobbies for fulfillment - this is just a job.
In spite of the very talented co-workers and employees I worked with during the 11 months I was employed there, management seemed to lack professional training. I was told some were simply appointed by higher level managers who were choosing friends and relatives instead of seeking the most qualified. My supervisor, who is in his 6th or 7th year there, clued my in on the recent history of the company. I'm glad I'm no longer there.
flexible work schedules and excellent benefits.
provincial and juvenile attitude of some managers and directors.
customer service rep 1 (Former Employee) – las vegas nv – June 6, 2014
I was employed by this company. management never took responsibility for any issues that arose. rather than seeing the potential in each individual, they criticize you. they overstress you. if you have family, be ready to not see them often. management leaves whenever they please and are not around to help when needed. you need to learn everything on your own.. poor training.
if work/life balance is your thing, then this is not a place for you
Software Developer (Current Employee) – Las Vegas – January 25, 2014
They say it really depends on the department, how hard/long your day is. Mine was one that had maximum exposure to the management.So if you do it bad, you are screwed. If you do it right, you are asked for more. That added tremendous pressure, took out my social life and made even a day-off to be impossible. People have this attitude of work until 7 every evening and then over the weekend too. I couldn't fit in this work culture.
senior level non-manager (Current Employee) – Las Vegas – November 19, 2013
My department has had several downsizings. But none of them were layoffs. They found ways to give bad reviews to people (easy, no matter how good the worker was), then terminated them with no benefits or unemployment. Then humiliated them further by having guards come up and, in front of everybody, clean out their work spaces.
The general working people were very nice and the atmosphere was good.
Great co-workers make it an enjoyable place to work.
Material Handler/Slot Machine Assembler (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – September 17, 2013
The work was very fast paced and challenging most of the time but for the most part management did try to make sure you had the resources to succeed. The best part of the job was the "work hard, play hard" mentality that most people had there. No matter how hard or stressful a day would've been, everyone was still able to truly relax and joke with each other during breaks and lunches.
Discriminatory Management and constant degrading of employees hard work
Field Service Technician (Former Employee) – Yonkers, NY – June 7, 2013
Management constantly lies to its employees. There is no room for advancement.There is no union, no protection for employees. There is no supervision and employees are only called up on when minor mistakes are made. Some co-workers are great and knowledgeable while others are there to sit and collect a pay check. Only good benefit is the stock option and some what decent healthcare.
