Slot Machine Assembler (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – December 3, 2015
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 use to be a great place to work but now it is Scientific Games
Director (Current Employee) – Nevada – June 16, 2016
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.
Worst Company I have ever worked with !! Forcing Employees to work at Late Nights
Former Software Analyst (Former Employee) – Chennai – March 27, 2013
In the chennai office, even employees cannot talk among them other than official meetings, KTs. It is a kind of unwritten rule, if they do so, will be scolded by Leads like they are wasting time.
no good thing to share, salary is somewhat better
1 no work life balance. treating employees like captives, forcing support employees to work 14-16 hours daily. even if there is no work, low level employees are forced to stay in the office at late nights, weekends by their leads. 2. office is fully occupied with politics, very bad hrs, they are not caring empoyees problems. 3. leads are behaving childish, complaining about people behind them, torturing them like anything. 4. no career growth
Long hours are common place. Constantly frustrated by the lack of team interaction. Lack of effective planning and requirements analysis are often to blame for the long hours. Corporate culture is defined by rush rush attitude and constant team conflict surrounding fixing fault rather than fixing problems. Can be a friendly atmosphere as long as you and your team are not the focal point for issues and blame assignment.
Pay is fair to start, but seldom increases more than cost of living, without a position change or significant promotion. No real rewards system. The company is driven by short term profit and short term thinking. This thinking tends to restrict training opportunities.
Training is rapid and mediocre when you can get it. This is due to cost concerns and poor staffing again driven by short term thinking.
No respect for employees, they are treated as slaves!
Associate (Former Employee) – Bangalore – April 22, 2013
Management and HR believes that the pay of employees at Bally is good so they have full rights on their personal lives.. Employees are made to work on weekends, new years and day in and night. Employee cannot ask for long leaves if he wishes to visit his hometown or incase of emergency. Work culture is pathetic.
In a nutshell, zero work life balance, zero respect for employees requests and genuine concerns and no professionalism at all.
Good for people who are looking to have a high pay but ready to make their lives hell.
fun activities are organized from time to time
no time to participate and enjoy as employees are treated as slaves.
Great co-workers make it an enjoyable place to work.
Material Handler/Slot Machine Assembler (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – September 17, 2013
The work was very fast paced and challenging most of the time but for the most part management did try to make sure you had the resources to succeed. The best part of the job was the "work hard, play hard" mentality that most people had there. No matter how hard or stressful a day would've been, everyone was still able to truly relax and joke with each other during breaks and lunches.
Sales Administrator (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – January 8, 2014
It was a great place to grow and advance if you wanted too. I started out as a data entry clerk and when I got laid off I had worked my way up to Sale Administration. I learned how to train and manage people. How to write and maintain training material. I participated in lean management events and was on the lean management team.
I learned for my managers the type of supervisor and person that I wanted to be on the job as well as some things I did not want to be. I enjoyed my almost 8 years of learning and growing with this company. They are a fantastic place to work.
constant training and development. advancment oppertunities for those wanting it.
internal politics could sometimes get in the way of production.
In spite of the very talented co-workers and employees I worked with during the 11 months I was employed there, management seemed to lack professional training. I was told some were simply appointed by higher level managers who were choosing friends and relatives instead of seeking the most qualified. My supervisor, who is in his 6th or 7th year there, clued my in on the recent history of the company. I'm glad I'm no longer there.
flexible work schedules and excellent benefits.
provincial and juvenile attitude of some managers and directors.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – June 24, 2015
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.
Discriminatory Management and constant degrading of employees hard work
Field Service Technician (Former Employee) – Yonkers, NY – June 7, 2013
Management constantly lies to its employees. There is no room for advancement.There is no union, no protection for employees. There is no supervision and employees are only called up on when minor mistakes are made. Some co-workers are great and knowledgeable while others are there to sit and collect a pay check. Only good benefit is the stock option and some what decent healthcare.
