Its Great working at WMS Gaming with all Gaming terminals
Sr. Manager Software Development (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILFebruary 1, 2016
Its not only great but a lot of fun to work at WMS Gaming. Being a gaming company you'd have access to all the games; pool table, ping pong, WII, PlayStation, etc.
The compensation is very very good and the team in Chicago is great. WMS went trough two acquisitions.

Pros

Awful Operations Managers
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Las VegasJuly 2, 2015
WMS Gaming c/o Scientific Games is now one of the worst companies you could work for. This was a great company prior to 2014, but has gone down hill ever since Scientific Games took over. Acquisition of Bally Gaming in 2014 just made it that much worse.
Pros
Work / Life Balance
Cons
Management - Mid-Level and Senior

Great Company
Supervisor, Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Waukegan, ILFebruary 12, 2015
A typical day at work is reviewing the daily orders scheduled to ship. Working with my staff to ensure all orders are pick released to ship per the allocated days. Work closely with many departments which include planning, compliance, trade compliance, etc. to ensure orders are processed and shipped correctly in they system. Handle internal and external customer calls. I have learned much from the great leadership I’ve had. I have grown within my role due to the wonderful mentor’s I’ve had within this company. My co-workers are amazing and we work well together as a team. The hardest part of the job is trying to ship orders complete for casino installations. The most enjoyable part of the day is the satisfaction I receive when my staff and my internal and external customers are happy.
Pros
healthcare and employee recognition programs
Cons
