Principal Manager Interactive (Current Employee) – Chicago – August 21, 2015
SG is a very large and growing organization. The growing pains have taken a toll on its people, but it is a good company. Management is heavy at the top. Middle and senior managers rarely are promoted. Little to no insight of where the company is headed.
Senior Director - Systems and Product Engineering (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 14, 2015
I had a great team of Systems Engineers, we worked on requirements for a variety of new product platforms, and managed the dozens and dozens of jurisdictional regulations and requirements from markets all over the world.
Good benefits, many nice perks
uncertain future, loads of debt, multiple acquistion turmoil
No opportunities for advancement, poor wages and management
Production Lead (Former Employee) – Alpharetta, GA – July 20, 2015
Shift starts with Lead meetings with the Senior Lead as leads create schedules/line-ups for the line employees. Shift starts and leads have a meeting with employees to let them know what games are being ran and how to run the games. The lead then supervises the production lines and processes to make sure the lines are running efficiently.
I learned a lot as a production lead. Mostly of what not to do as a manager. There were no developmental programs or managerial classes that would help leads be better managers/supervisors of employees. In most cases all management cared about was the production numbers, not so much about the employees.
My co-workers were okay to work with, but not a lot of managerial experience. So there was a lot of "favoritism" issues and accountability issues amongst leads. It made it extremely difficult for leads who did try to hold employees accountable.
The hardest part of the job was knowing that management didn't really care about the employees and didn't have any plan for developing leads for other managerial opportunities.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working with people from different walks of life. The challenge of motivating each individual employee to do their very best that night was also enjoyable.
The time off from the work schedule. 3 days on 4 days off and 4 days on 3 days off.
Mandatory overtime and management doesn't really support employee engagement opportunities.
Printing Press Operator (Current Employee) – Alpharetta, GA – June 29, 2015
The job is decent and I love the printing industry. It's the first job I've held for so long. When I first started I knew nothing about printing or the printing industries. now I can look at a lot of different printed products and I see them in a new scrutiny. I get along well and work well with my fellow co-workers. A typical day usually deals with finishing a job coming down and changing to a new job: switching plates(plate cylinders), aniloxes, inks, perf blades(perf cylinder), paper(width and type). Then starting the press back up when ready, inking each unit up, striking in the printing register evenly and making sure everything looks good. stop to check everything is good and the quality is where it needs to be before finally starting back up and running the job. Sometimes there may be 2 job changes in 12 hour shift, sometimes more and then sometimes not at all.
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Ballys Technologies Las Vegas – June 27, 2015
I got the job as a Material handler for Ballys Technologies Las vegas thru a temp agency the things I didn't like was the inadequate training I received on the warehouse scanners ( I HAVE NO PREVIOUS EXPERIANCE ) and also the long hours and days had to work because the warehouse has NO warehouse workers at night so what ever was not done was pretty much left over to be added on top of new work on the next day so after 4 days on the job I quit was hoping to stay on to make it a career but I felt it was way too much
Great people the pay hours
Inadequate training, long hours and weeks, no warehouse workers at night
