Fast paced and deadline driven position. lots of stress at end of month, end of quarter and end of the year. This company was bought out by Scientific Games, and they closed the Waukegan, IL plant and moved to Las Vegas. Very fun Environment to work in. But a lot of stress, and deadlines to meet,
Senior Analyst, Finished Goods Coor (Former Employee) – Waukegan, IL – March 29, 2017
Overall good place to work. Not enough room for advancement. At times some management folks did not show professional behavior towards employees. Some managers would reprimand workers in front of entire dept. causing embarrassment
WMS used to be a great place to work until acquired by Scientific Games
Product Regulatory Compliance Manager (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – March 5, 2017
Future of the Chicago campus is shaky, but still a good company to work for. management has not found its footing yet, seems there is a lot of shooting from the hip.There are some good people working there and this is the best part of the job, but recently this is counterbalanced by the fact of having to meet unreasonable deadlines under strenuous circumstances.

High expectations from management made this position difficult. If you did one aspect of the job you were questioned on why you didn't do another area of the position.
Hardest part of the job was satisfying management even though you weremore... working your hardest and to your fullest potential. It was not uncommon to work 116 hours over a two week period.less
Almost too much multitasking to the point of difficulty doing a good job
Worked there during transition and merger. Good management miss the job

Remote technician position was challenging and fulfilling. Learned my value as a remote technician and customer service specialist. Management changed a lot during transition. Co workers were fabulous. Hardest part of the job was not knowing if i would have a position after merger.
Its Great working at WMS Gaming with all Gaming terminals

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.

Principal II (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 14, 2015
Great place to work and an excellent benefits package. Good management and a good balance of work and life. Great programs for onboarding test engineers and getting them setup. If you try at this company you can succeed.
Not sure how they are fairing since they were acquired by Scientific Games as I only worked there for a short time after the acquisition took place.
Excellent benefits and great gym. Fun activities such as movie outings and softball!
Always have crunch time in this industry so that's not really a con in my book ;)
Credit Analyst (Former Employee) – Waukegan, IL – November 10, 2015
WMS Gaming was a manufacturer and distributor, of Gaming machines (SLOTS) My daily routine consisted of managing invoicing, contractual obligations and payments for more than 250 individual Casinos,and several National Accounts across the United States. My portfolio included Native American Casinos in California and Wisconsin. Billing was done daily, weekly and also monthly. ( daily rates and percentage rates) We also invoiced with Short Term Leasing,Capital Leasing and standard Loans.
Great place to work. They are very innovative and emphasize on personally growing and develop each employee. There is a lot of potential for advancement and pay is very well. Management is great...but of course there is always the typical politics in a big company.
Free fountain drinks. Excersize room and entertainment lounge.
Software Engineer (Current Employee) – Chicago IL – July 6, 2015
Was a great company, but the new direction that has been taken since the buy out by Scientific Games, and merger with Bally things have gone down hill. Less opportunity to innovate the day to day work has become very mandate.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Las Vegas – July 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.
