Scrum Master/Rally Facilitator - Contract (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 26, 2019
I was Contractor at SG and was not fully vested in the Company. Therefore, as a Contractor I did not have full opportunities like the employees. I enjoyed working for SG, it was very quiet and peaceful working there.
Field Service Technician (Current Employee) – Yonkers, NY – March 19, 2019
Learn alot at pace that's not overwhelming... If you're new be prepared to have a less than desirable schedule. It is based on seniority and the people who have the good schedules aren't going anywhere anytime soon. I don't blame them it's a great job.
Relaxed environment with understanding management, good benefits
CRO Technician (Current Employee) – Alpharetta, GA – March 17, 2019
If you like a corporate environment, that is what you will get. There are ups and downs to that, but overall it is a great thing. Stable job, stable company, the company has your back. Benefits are ok, 401k is the biggest selling point to it since not a lot of places match nowadays.
The salaries were not competitive for the area and poor management constantly getting in the way. The bonus system is completely weak and doesn't do anything to rectify the lower salaries. There are no official titles for people making it harder to earn promotions and move up in the company. It's a drinking culture so if you don't like to drink, this place isn't for you.
It started out well and good but over the years it kept getting worse and worse. During my time there people kept jumping ship and had the highest turn over rate I have ever seen. It is not easy to move to a different team if you choose to do so either. There is only one IT professional there that truly knows what he's doing in the entire company. So if you are using a Mac you need to talk to him.
My time there felt extremely stressful towards the end with managers throwing people under the bus for things they were asked to do in the first place. If you choose to work here, be careful and know what you're getting yourself into.
Poor management, poor pay, poor bonus system, poor IT, Too much drinking, poor environment
Material Handler I/Forklift Driver (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – February 9, 2019
Work/life balance is entirely non-existent. The entire Material Handler department has horrible turnover, which means mandatory overtime, which means very little time off. Couple this with a pittance of PTO and an oppressive attendance policy; you will spend more time here than you do at home.
long hrs, mangement, no recognition, low pay for what you do

MANAGER CORPORATE SECURITY (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – January 22, 2019
Working in a SOC responsible for maintaining the safety and security of the companies employees and asset protection is both a challenging and rewarding experience. Working with a team of former LEO, Military and Security professionals brings about a great amount of Espirit de Corps.
Working with personnel with like experiences; Uniforms are provided; plenty of PTO
There needs to be a greater emphasis on training of the team
Marketing Product Manager (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – January 17, 2019
I was part of one of the companies that Scientific Games bought and they did a really poor job combining the companies. Everyone is now treated like a number. Layoffs happen roughly every six months so everyone is constantly worried for their job. When job openings are made available they are often filled from the outside. The job was not all bad, since the bosses are often unqualified for their position they do not micro manage the employees. The HR department is working hard on changing the culture but as long as you have people from three major companies still working in their own silos you will never be able to make a cohesive team.
Company events, Flexible Work Days
No Job Security, Bosses often unqualified for their position.
Good place to work, but management might need some improvement.
Repair Technician II (Current Employee) – Alpharetta, GA – January 8, 2019
Good place to work, if you leave closer to the location. and willing to work overtime. Flexible time to work overtime and resume in the morning. some time can be very stressful, just make sure you are ready for the challenge.
Security Supervisor (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – December 28, 2018
Typical day at work,fingerprinting,age identification, incident report writing.Working with off duty police.I also enjoyed working with other worker's and also custormer's,being a gambling facility and also having a Bar can keep security very busy.
Long hours, lots of overtime, horrible pay/benefits. Run away.
Computer Operator (Current Employee) – Middletown, PA – December 5, 2018
- Horrible pay. Salaries are not at all competitive; expect to be making far less than MANY unskilled and entry-level positions in the area, even after factoring in overtime compensation. Yearly raises and cost-of-living salary increases are likewise awful; less than 2 percent even with outstanding evaluations.
- Work/life balance is entirely non-existent. The entire operations department has horrible turnover, which means mandatory overtime, which means very little time off. Couple this with a pittance of PTO and an oppressive attendance policy; you will spend more time here than you do at home.
- PTO and Attendance policies are miserable. You receive a tiny PTO package when starting that will not increase until after your 5th year of service here. You receive absolutely ZERO sick time. Medical or family emergencies will get you written up; no exceptions are made. Half of the department is constantly on the edge of termination. You will be sick constantly due to co-workers being FORCED to come into work while sick.
- Communication from management is inconsistent at best and non-existent at worst. Policies and procedures are changed constantly with little no no warning. You will be called into a meeting with management over a pile of mistakes you were not made aware of dating back several months. You will be written up for mistakes that your co-workers make. Training procedures change every time someone new is hired. You will be expected to do work that you have not yet been trained to do.
- Health benefits are inconsistent from year to year. Plans and providersmore... are constantly changing; don't get used to your doctor being in-network for very long.
- You will receive no acknowledgement or bonuses for doing well; you will be the first to be thrown under the bus when things go wrong.less
Easy job to get.
Horrible pay. No work/life balance. No sick time. No communication. Poor benefits.

Field Service Technician I (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – November 14, 2018
This is an American company but it is ran by the Filipino nationality. If you read write and speak English this is not the place for you. It is very hard to move up in the Company unless you have great knee pads.
Packaging (Former Employee) – Alpharetta, GA – November 12, 2018
Company institutes mandatory over time at its whim, with little notice. It is not uncommon for certain employees to work six day weeks or 10 out of 11 days with 12 hour shift, and turn around and do it again. It has NO concern with employees having balance in their lives.
The benefit package is good.
Pay is not sufficient and required to work too much .
Fair, great enty level employment for communications industry
Field Service Technician (Current Employee) – Connecticut – November 7, 2018
Great entry level job for those who want to get on the ground floor of the communication and gaming industry Work is very fast paced but the proper supervision you will do fine. Equipment needs to be update but as a whole a nice place to work.
Quality Assurance Software Test Engineer (Former Employee) – Cedar Falls, IA – November 5, 2018
I am going to keep this short. Scientific Games had a great culture. If you are a gamer you will be surrounded by more gamers. The people are good to work with. The main problem with this company is the management. They micromanage every project and sometimes pull people off of a project half way through because the KPIs are down. There is little to no room for advancement in the company unless you are "one of the guys". Ideas from people that are not in management are almost never heard and half the time you work at the company you will have nothing to do unless you happen to be an engineer. This is why I give Scientific Games a 2 stars overall.
