Good place to learn the gaming industry.
Senior Engineer (Former Employee) –  Lakewood, NJJuly 12, 2017
Generally good people. No formal training. Little career growth. Good place to learn industry/business and then move on, unless you are content to remain in a given position indefinitely. Good benefits but salary and bonuses tend to be low.

Biggest Test Gaming Test Lab in the world.
Test Engineer (Current Employee) –  Best not to list it here.June 4, 2017
Honest Opinion about GLI:

My typical day at beginning of work includes checking in with Seniors Engineers on what assignment or testing that needs to be done. It can be range from check or testing personality games to gaming devices or event gaming systems for bugs.

As a test engineer at GLI, it will help individual grow in managing projects. Furthermore, it will help grow yourself with communication skills and projects management skills.

No opinions on managers, I don't think one person opinion can justify in classifying the whole organization managers, it is unfair to the manager of GLI.

The work culture is different from your typical 9PM to 5PM, the job is base on your ability to understand what type of product that you are testing. It can can be difficult when products don't work or there are no information on it. Communicated to management and suppliers can be difficult though JIRA.

The hardest part about being a Test Engineer for GLI is that products that come in usually doesn't have sufficent instructions. So testing a product can be a hit or miss depending on your ability to find someone in the organization that understands the product.

The most thing I like about working at GLI is that everyone try their best give everyone world class service. Everyone is very nice here.

fun place to work
Systems/Test engineer (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVMay 22, 2017
Testing most of the time.
Testing methodologies
Management - some managers can be mean, some other are awesome.
Hardest part of the job: there are no official documents of all the steps needed for testing; workers have to rely in own notes.
Hardest part is remember what hardware is needed for all the different machines.
Most enjoyable part of the job are the co-workers
Pros
good benefits
Cons
Hard when you start

It's a job
Senior Engineer (Former Employee) –  Wheat Ridge, COAugust 1, 2016
GLI hires highly educated staff but the education is rarely used in testing. While occasionally there may be a demanding project the typical day is redundant. The company has recently gone through major growth spurts and the ability for advancement is slim. The workload is inconsistent, some days there will be little and other times mandatory overtime is implemented. Management is very disconnected from the day to day work of the company. The benefits are above average and really great for families.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
won't use education in job

Production job disguised as a legal position
Quality Assurance Document Specialist (Former Employee) –  Lakewood, NJMay 16, 2016
Most employees temp for 6 months unless they know someone, then they will hire you at a permanent position. As a Document Specialist, you are required to produce certification documents for gaming hardware and software, containing technology specifics provided by the engineering department and jurisdictional specifics, depending on where the technology will be used. The engineering department is not typically communicative about these aspects, which makes this job very difficult. It is extremely high-paced (unless you are a "favorite"; some seem to have a lot of time on their hands) and detail-oriented, but lacks sufficient training or procedures to facilitate efficient work flow. It is satisfying to learn the terminology and put it together, however, employees are expected to complete the certification documents with little to no knowledge about what the reports actually mean. It seems that, in lieu of paying the salaries of qualified technical writers, they hire administrative assistants and office workers to complete boiler-plate certifications. They promote the position as being in the legal field when it is not.
Pros
Decent salary, great benefits, Dto, 401K, two bonus' a year (Holiday and profit share)
Cons
Rampant nepotism, poor training, unqualified management

Good environment for entry to gaming industry. Management could be better. Career growth limited
Senior Engineer (Current Employee) –  Lakewood, NJJuly 14, 2015
At it's core the services provided by GLI are important in maintaining integrity of gambling and gaming throughout the world, which can provide some job satisfaction. They have an advantageous position in the industry of being a centralized established service provider for regulatory bodies. The company offers good job security, but career advancement and talent recognition is limited. Management at times is not current with understanding technology, nor are they well structured in project management techniques. This can lead to employees having to work harder, do overtime, or make extraordinary efforts unnecessarily. Overall a good employment environment for entry to mid level employees, but not a great place for long term career development.
Pros
Good benefits. exposure to diverse technologies in the gaming industry, Company grows continuously
Cons
somewhat beauracratic, management does not inspire, pay and career opportunities limited

Great first job out of college
TEST ENGINEER II (Current Employee) –  Wheat Ridge, COMay 20, 2015
I landed this job about 4 months after finishing school. Good place to work. The people you work with are great, very easy to get along with and relate to. Most of the work you complete has a very short turn around time (~3-5 days) so you are always getting exposed to new software to test. Unfortunately the work you complete is pretty industry specific and does not allow you much room to grow. After 3 years the job has become stale and I have lost touch with my core programming skills I obtained in college. Great place if you are looking for easy, non-challenging work, and you are looking for a place that you can stay at for 15+ years, but I am personally bored of it and in looking for other QA jobs I find that some of the more common job requirements are outside of the scope of the work I completed here.
Pros
Very flexible work hours, foosball table, bi-annual bonuses, paid health and dental insurance
Cons
Gets boring quick, work is not challenging or entertaining, limits ability to grow as a professional beyond the casino industry.

Exciting and new work place
Test Engineer (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVApril 14, 2015
A typical day at work was for the most part isolated if you chose to be, office gatherings were frequent and it was a great environment. It was a very relaxing and comfortable cubicle style work environment.
Pros
Great pay, great environment.
Cons
None really.

Systems Tester (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVMarch 15, 2015
Co-workers were great. Young crowd. We all worked close to one another testing slot machines and vendor applications.
Everyone works individually on a project. Not a team environment. Micro management.

Independent third party slot machine regulatory testing
Test Engineer Level I. I (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVFebruary 24, 2015
Job included set-up and testing of proprietary slot machine systems. Testing to regulatory standards in various locations across the globe. Management gave differing and inconsistent guidance with regards to job responsibilities and requirements. Co-workers were more than willing to help each other and fostered an environment of mutual assistance and good will. The hardest part was learning and responding to the various jurisdictional requirements as the government bodies changed rules. I mostly enjoyed working with linux on the slot machines and verifying the source code to finished product signatures.
Pros
Great employee community, exposure to proprietary environment.
Cons
Management/rapid expansion difficultities

Data Entry Level I (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVSeptember 8, 2014
Data Entry:
Pay attention to every report, catch as many errors as you can. Get as much as possible done during the course of the day, and you can't go wrong. Be sure to be able to perform above and beyond human capabilities. Do not show any emotion, and don't make friends outside of your department.

Be prepared to have your ideas rejected and then used and claimed as not your own. Be ready for impromptu meetings about attitude and behavior if you're having a bad day... do not show any emotion while working. Be careful who you speak to, direct supervisor may not like you having conversations with other people.
Pros
great benefits
Cons
not following through on "Core Values"

High paced slot testing lab good for training experience for new graduates in this field.
Admin (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVMay 20, 2014
The job itself is great if you like to be micro managed and treated like a child. Upper management leaves a lot to be desired. If you are in search of some training to get a better, higher paying job in the slot machine field, this is ideal for six months to a year and then run as fast as you can.
Pros
benefits and time off
Cons
everything else
