Topics regarding layoffs at Scientific Games Corp.
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
Why so silent?
2 managers are getting fired in India this month

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?
Just curious. Does anyone know if HB1 Visa holders are replacing those in the US?
Has anyone heard if there will be more layoffs this month?
In the scope of things, how much does that water cost the freaking company? Maybe they shouldn't have bought DEQ! I bet the power hungry mongers at the top of the food chain are still getting their bonuses! I hope those greedy people get theirs now... read more
Anyone let go today? Is this round over?
How does the actual act of communicating that you've been laid off from SG happen? Do they call you in a conference room? Who is there? What do they tell you? How long does it take?
Do the math. CEO and company publicly states that they are looking for 75 million dollar savings; and 20 million dollars will be spent on this "purge". So far, we've heard of some 70-80 people in Alpharetta, some 15-20 in San Diego, and maybe a 100... read more
Does anyone have info on WMS Chicagos game development team? Will that department suffer any more losses by end of year? How many?
Maybe Ronald Perelman sits on the board of directors for Aristocrat Gaming so he is eliminating competition for Aristocrat by consolidating then destroying competitors. CEO Kevin Hatchetman does not have to be a genius to step in to eliminate head... read more
HR called us into a conference room. 3 techs, and our 2 supervisors. 3 layoffs, and 1 person who was off and couldn't make it in to be let go. We all got a severance. Health insurance good until the end of the month. Paid through today, the end of... read more
WMS is redundant, haven't you guys learned yet? Nobody in this company is ever safe, not anymore. The fact OP thinks he has another 15 years is delusional. 8 billion will be paid with all of our salaries eventually. Everyone will be sold off, but... read more
The real question is, who "scored" by this unbelievable merger between SGMS/Bally/WMS/Shuffle. I think we all know the truth.... Wall Street hacks and corporate execs..... Quite a scam folks...
When times are good he adds too much to the workforce and says "look at me, I'm doing so good I need to hire beaucoup new guys." Result: CEO gets big bonux When times are bad CEO cuts employees and says "look at me, I'm saving the company sooo much... read more
What is the "severance agreement" like? used to be 2 weeks of pay for each year of service. this time though, they seem to have allocated 20 mil for this thing. Reposted from: @KcjoKKV-aeu
I haven't been notified yet, but I'm extremely nervous, as I suppose most of us are. The pressure is high, cause I'm the primary source of house income, plus I have this horrible feeling that I for certainly won't dodge this bullet. Does anyone know... read more
100 let go in Chicago, 10 in San Diego Studio, 60 to 80 in Alpharetta
10% of the US payroll will be reduced. Company had over 300 VP titles with $200k salaries or more....too top heavy.
Besides Las Vegas, which sites are impacted today? How many and which dep?
Q3 results published, better than the last one, but apparently not good enough as they also announced program for cutting costs by 75 million USD. They haven't announced how many jobs yet, but we'll find out soon enough... read more
Heard SG is closing some warehouses in Chicago. Hopefully this is the majority of the layoffs.
The company should have saved Dean Chappel's. He was very talented and full of knowledge. Wow what a shocker. Good luck because December is when they start cleaning house again.
When is Diane Newmyer going to get let go. What does she do? I know she love gossiping about others. I guess no layoff for her in the near future.
Rumors are that something's going down this week with cuts and demotions.
Well, looks like the good times are here again. Stock up 35%...wow!! But really, is this just dead cat bounce on a dead company, or are things turning around?
Stock is tanking and they are cutting talent
The place is like an archaic prison awaiting the cell mates and guards to start the 'Dead-Man walking' chant.
