Bally use to be a great place to work but now it is Scientific Games

Quote from senior management: "I would rather an employee quit than to have them transfer out of my department." This clearly relays two things. SG does not care about their employees and that they do not have any career advancement within the company.

The workplace is good. Asians are not being treated fairly when it comes to work advancements especially on filipinos. People that works hard stays where they are and the people that don't work hard, advances.

Bally Technologies is an amazing company to work for. Alot of kind and courteous people work there and everyone in the human resources department are absolutely wonderful. No matter what anyone through out the whole company is ready and willing to bend over backward to help anyone who needs it.

Most enjoyable part of my job is helping others resolve their IT issues. I've learned the Unix based operating system. A typical day's work is helipng others, customers and coworkers to resolve customers' IT issues.
It was fun working here until the acquisition and re-organization started taking place.Co workers were all knowledgeable and had strong fundamentals.After a year work gets monotonous.No scope for growth.
I worked for Bally for 17yrs. Was let go when they were purchased by Scientific Games. I don't hold Bally any wrong, as it was a business decision. Though I will miss all the people I worked for. The company overall was great to work with. They worked you hard, but paid well. Open schedule if you need to go to the doctor or run an errand. The people were great to work for. They seemed a little management heavy, but management took care of you...can't say how it is with scientific games though.
Productive and fun working place with ping pong tables

A typical day would involve you being in a meeting with the client/team and would require you to connect over the phone to the onsite team and solving/analyzing issues in the production environment. If you are serious about learning new technologies and wanting to explore your software development skills, it would be a idle fit. The work is not just for beginners and hence would require some technical background if you would like enjoy and have fun at work.
Compensation, travel, challenging environment for growth
Lack of proper workforce which drives you crazy at times.
