Poor technical operations and repair
Technician (Current Employee) –  Alpharetta, GAJuly 15, 2016
Management within technical and repair operations do not know what they are doing. The company and dept takes on whatever it feels like it can do to make $$$$ for this company that has been corporately Raided within the last year! It has taken on a HUGE DEBT to merge with 3 other companies while at the same time has reduced employee benefits and compensation to the very hard working staff that has to deal with current supervisors ridiculous statements on why production and repair is not getting done to meet the financial demands of the company because it's the supervisors job to help get parts and support to meet these demands which they have no idea how to do! Poor communication with management or none at all on what needs to be done to get repairs done and in a timely manner. No support from management when employees try to give technical suggestions on how to do certain complex jobs correctly. When asked,management just goes on and does whatever it thinks it should do to get work done which it doesn't!
I have never in all the places worked seen more upper,middle management jumping ship than this company in the last 2 years. Too many reasons to mention here!!!! Could not be worse than being on board the Titanic!!
Pros
Fair pay
Cons
Too many changes which are bad, No communication, No concern for workforce that has made the company what it once was!

Overview of SG Business

Very interesting company with operations spread across all facets of the gaming industry. SG is the largest printer in the world of scratch off lottery tickets, manages various state lottery operations within the United States, as well as international locales, and one of the world's largest manufacturers of slot machines and related game content.

Working within Internal Audit afforded significant international travel which was a highlight.

Not bad
Services (Current Employee) –  Alpharetta, GAMay 12, 2016
- A typical day at work consists of the preventing scope creep with external customers and working to meet deadlines with the challenge of resource constraints
- I've learned more of what not to do, which is valuable, rather than good practices
- management/sales need to focus more on projects that are currently ongoing vs. getting the next contract
- co-workers are a mix of great, intelligent, competent people and silo'ed, resistant-to-change people
- the hardest part of the job would be the challenging customers and the external/internal political aspect
- I enjoy the positive connects I have with with the people that I work with that has the mutual goal of executing a project on time, on budget and high quality

New management is taking over
Hardware Engineer (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILApril 18, 2016
Unfortunately, new management is taking over. Raises and promotions have been marginal at best. The new management doesn't seem to care about anything except for making money for the shareholders. Many people have been leaving to find jobs that have better management/growth opportunities.
Pros
Nice work environment. Decent benefits
Cons
New management, poor promotion/raise strucutre

Continues changes
Senior Sales Administrator / Sales Administrator (Current Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVMarch 9, 2016
Employee appreciation has not been proven through the various changes. Motivation has been restricted to keeping a job. Fellow employees are good people and make the job worth coming to. The benefits are not bad but have decreased in coverage with the other changes. It is generally a good company.

Declining culture, but great place to work
Principal Manager Interactive (Current Employee) –  ChicagoAugust 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.
Pros
Work balance ratio
Cons
Top heavy, no room for upward movement
