Scientific Games Corp. Layoffs

Topics regarding layoffs at Scientific Games Corp.

Is it finally done?

Looks like no layoffs today after all. Does that mean we are finally done? After the last two days, I really hope we are.

Systems Divison SVP should be fired

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 

More today?

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 

Reorganize the company

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.

Update on furloughed

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.

Second Wave of Layoffs

I hear they will be laying off more people. Those who are still furloughed will be let go. Has anyone else heard this?

Does anyone think it’s over?

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.

Coming back

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 

It’s a good thing!

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

Not many new glassdoor reviews yet...

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 

Yesterday was bad

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 

Layoffs coming fast

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.

Coronavirus

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?

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.

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

SGMS DOWN!

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.

Oct-Nov

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

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
