I've been here around 8 years now and have noticed a rise in recent years of keeping around poor-performing employees to serve as "sacrificial lambs" for company-wide layoffs instead of properly downsizing departments or getting rid of dead weight in... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Scientific Games Corp.
First SG furloughed/laid off employees with the hope of weathering the economic crisis that Covid 19 has caused and now rumors of more layoffs (if true) are on the rise. These "cost effective" methods are just a short term reprieve to the real issue... — read more
I heard ATI is looking to buy scigames and split it up into several parts, anyone else hear this?
I heard SG is getting ready to do more layoffs. Has anyone heard this?
Any news on the reorganization? I know they got rid of a lot of long timers but they didn't get rid of all of them it seems some people are pets.
All the SG trash is being recycled at Curaleaf.
The most incompetent hacks ever seen in software development. Oh....we got a new app???? Let’s throw another app server on more HW. What an f’n joke. How many apps running on separate servers are required to run a c-sino????? We’ve... — read more
Looks like no layoffs today after all. Does that mean we are finally done? After the last two days, I really hope we are.
Sethuram had a meeting couple weeks back with the entire team regarding MacAndrews intent to sell their positions. One would expect a person at his position to be able to speak and communicate well but it was all the opposite. He was reading from a... — read more
Lots of people across the company.
No known count as of yet.
What's happening with layoffs? Will there be more today? Also, what else was hit yesterday other than Las Vegas? Several people said their locations were hit as well but didn't specify what those locations are. I'm just trying to figure out how... — read more
Any update on the Company reorganizing? Get rid of Project Management and all the directors, slim HR down and Legal/Compliance C-sinos are not taking games.
I am still furloughed any word of if they will lay off? It makes me sick to see the company hire people when we are all still furloughed.
I hear they will be laying off more people. Those who are still furloughed will be let go. Has anyone else heard this?
Still a lot out on furloughs, does anyone think or know that more layoffs are coming? Starting to seem that no one feels safe, the way this has been handled is going to change company culture for a long time.
Now that some c-sinos are planing to reopen..but dont be expecting to have the service team there. Vegas is making a list of who to bring back and when....we should be focused on doing this right for the customer rather than letting them down only to... — read more
This has given a dose of reality and a slice of humble pie to some of those who were placed in a position that they did not deserve. Uninspiring fake leaders who are skilled in playing that corporate bs game. When things go wrong they are quick to... — read more
Welcome ladies and gentlemen to the 2020 Scientific Games Covid-19 Coronavirus Unemployment Draft. and with the First Pick team Finance selects....
With all the pain and angst being felt right now, I'm a little surprised there isn't an avalanche of negative reviews of SG being added to glassdoor right now. If not, then all those fake-sounding 5-star reviews of "all good", "no cons" will reign... — read more
Simple question. The reason for the layoffs was lack of money. So where is the money for the new hires coming from???
The current austerity measures implemented are on the conservative side. There is a lot more room to cut.
Please God tell me we still have the diversity and inclusion department
All I see is people with more years and more experience being forced to leave first. How is that fair?
So many people have lost their jobs and their only source of income. I know it was expected, but that doesn't make it any easier on any of us. I'm not even sure we'll all be able to return once things go back to normal. Really hard times are ahead... — read more
Email sent out today from the Chief Exec of lottery stating “tough decisions need to be made”. But don’t worry, Also stated the company will come out the other side strong. At least they fired a warning shot I suppose.
Nobody wants to go to a c-sino when there's a virus outbreak. Without cashflow coming in from gaming ops, they're going to need to find a way to somehow make the interest payments on the massive debt load! Layoffs coming soon?

Wonder how many s—ers get a job here for maybe a 10% salary bump only to find out they make less now due to the expensive "benefits".
Looks like SG has improved by leaps and bounds in the month of november. So many good ratings. Well ofcourse the same usual writing style.
QA in Reno is going down. I heard 3 people already left in the past 3 months & more wants to quit because of unethical & rude behavior of the new Lead. There are rumors that SG is trying to shutdown QA department in Reno area. Looks like they are... — read more
No big layoffs in the last part of the year. Things looking up at SG?
Seems like the same person is pushing those 5-star ratings with the same sort of language. "Nothing to report at this time", "Nothing I could see in this month as a con"
Rumors of layoffs happening today. Right on schedule!
They getting rid of the people that knew the products and the clients. Not in a query that can go to anyone in the united state. The thing is the clients don't get good customer service they deserve and most of the CS are not the expert of games... — read more
