Software Engineer (Current Employee), Chicago ILJuly 6, 2015
Pros: Work life balance.
Cons: Little opportunity to advance your career.
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 VegasJuly 2, 2015
Pros: Work / Life Balance
Cons: Management - Mid-Level and Senior
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.

A great place to gain experience in a call center, develop relationships with management and overall work on being a positive innovator. Coworkers were nice and management picks and choose whom to assist. Very easy to get lost or misplaced within the system.

Great Company
Supervisor, Customer Service (Former Employee), Waukegan, ILFebruary 12, 2015
Pros: healthcare and employee recognition programs
Cons: job security/advancement
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.

BEWARE Scientific Games now owns and manages
Field Service Technician (Former Employee), Wood Dale, ILSeptember 27, 2014
Pros: paychecks every 2 weeks
Cons: no chance for movement except down and out
Management here is a joke you get ahead by being related to upper management. This is for the Wood Dale office. 90 percent of people employed at this office are contract employees and have no way to move onto permanent positions. The temp company is lousy and will do nothing for you. You are told you are the highest paid FST in the company but if true that does not say much for this company. Do yourself a favor and move on if this is for the Wood Dale office.
