Scientific Games Corp. Layoffs

Topics regarding layoffs at Scientific Games Corp.

2020 Benefits still a nightmare

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".

Sudden improvement

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

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

Positive Vibes

No big layoffs in the last part of the year. Things looking up at SG?

Another set of glowing 5 star ratings

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"

For years

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 

We need improvements

Scientific Games is a great technology-related company; the mid-leadership level does good jobs as an individual and as a team for itself!! The Down part, one of several, was the mid-level leader is not integrated from the strategically planning nor... —  read more 


What a disaster of an Earnings Call yesterday. What "great" leadership where the one studders a lot and the other mispronounces game names. Really makes you realize how our of touch they are with their own products.


As usual, end of summer to fall is when the order is passed down to look around for 'savings.' Are you ready?

Annual Raises? Or is it?

Haven't heard any official communication yet about our annual raises, but rumors are circling that it is destined to drop on the 2nd pay cycle in May. Rumors are it will be very very anemic, as usual. The govt stats for the last 12 months of CPI... —  read more 

More Layoffs?

I just heard today there were more layoffs yesterday - Shuffle people. Does anyone know anything?

Bally vs WMS hating/culture clashing.

Getting really tired of the us vs. them mentality here. Bally people thought they were a great company before SciGames/WMS purchased them. Well, WMS people felt the same way (was a great company before SG purchased them). But instead of joining in... —  read more 


No word on reviews/raises yet and it is almost March which is not a good sign.

Cobra Insurance forms

Why did all SG employees receive Cobra insurance information in the mail this week ?

This month?

Something is definitely up. Management has been disappearing for hours on end, won't look anyone in the face, no smiles and friendliness anywhere. That is the harbinger of what's to come soon.

The dead weight scientifically lingers at the bottom

People always target their sarcastic remarks towards upper level management unfairly. In most cases, not all those people are go getters. The people that make these companies great. They aren’t the ones sitting in the same job for 20 sum years... —  read more 

Non compete

Has anyone ever challenged the non compete? Hard to tell if it's anything more than just a scare tactic

Open enrollment coming.

Oh no. I just realized the annual insurance re-up is coming in November. Anyone who remembers the train wreck of last year ("You have no in-network doctors within 25 miles of the city? Well, stuff happens. Too bad. We have plenty of doctors here in... —  read more 


Just have to wonder how many good people from the companies they meddled with and purchased are/have suffering from their greed. What they did was so unethical and something each and every person at the top should be held accountable for.

Layoff Day!

Here we go, as predicted when new CEO came in. Layoff Day! Won't know how big until end of the day, but hearing VPs to entry level being impacted.

The golden parachute parade / "efficiencies".

Another new CEO, to read us his bullet points about finding efficiencies and why we can't afford to replace your dying laptop. Somehow, SG always finds a few million between the sofa cushions to pay another in a long line of golden parachutes for yet... —  read more 

New CEO, New Layoffs

New CEO posts video to YouTube saying company needs to look for "efficiencies". Next day he implements a hiring freeze. Everyone knows that means layoffs coming NEXT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What's $19 a month.

Scientific Games has decided it's in the employees best interest to add a $19/month fee to everyone's 401k. Gotta pay that 8 billion down somehow. The company obviously needs more VPs. 60 isn't cutting it.

Who was let go this week?

Supposedly there was a big layoffs round at Scientific Games this week (looks like yesterday was the worst day, but I've heard it all started on Monday), but I am failing to get any real info on who exactly and how many people were laid off? Is there... —  read more 

Chicago building being sold

Town hall next week. Bally has finally won. They never could handle the fact that we had a nice building. Now it's for sale and we're all done. At least we don't have to wonder anymore.

Attrition will remove the need for layoffs

They probably won't need to do any more layoffs in the Chicago office anymore -- at least not after today's "Annual Enrollment Benefits" presentation. Attrition will probably take care of any head-count reductions they need... They are changing the... —  read more
