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
Topics regarding layoffs at Scientific Games Corp.
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?
Wow... Six glowing 5-star reviews for SG today (29th May) in Glassdoor... :-) I've never seen such an avalanche of positive reviews like that before... Maybe things magically got better overnight :-) — read more
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
Title changes today. You manager lurkers better start explaining what is happening RIGHT NOW. Where are reviews?
I just heard today there were more layoffs yesterday - Shuffle people. Does anyone know anything?
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
Layoffs are happening ask the 9 th floor. Any chance we can get more info on this? — read more
No word on reviews/raises yet and it is almost March which is not a good sign.
Why did all SG employees receive Cobra insurance information in the mail this week ?
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.

Scientific Games shares have fallen 68.9% in 2018, while the S&P 500 SPX, -0.66% has fallen 1.2%. 8.5 billion dollars (US) in debt (still), and nearing all time lows for stock price per share. All indices are losing ground, sales are dramatically... — read more
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
Has anyone ever challenged the non compete? Hard to tell if it's anything more than just a scare tactic
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
Cheap labor is on the horizon.
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.
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.
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
Maybe I’m over optimistic, but I really think SG setting up a Sportsbook operation center is a smart move. Sportsbook is a rising market with many opportunities, especially now when the US legal barriers are lifted. Although ,I know Gibraltar is far... — read more
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just got let go from Reno. Along with some of my co-workers.
No one is safe The CEO was just fired Company lost 200 million in the last quarter Looks like things getting much worse at SGMS expect many to go to IGT
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.
That’s the memo headline. Read it and weep, or cheer real loud! Your choice.
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
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.
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

Give it up guys, go find another job this place is going in the sh--ter
It looks like about a month until the next quarter's earnings are announced. Plans are likely formulating for the next round of layoffs. Anyone heard anything?
