SG, like so many other companies, pay women and minorities significantly less. And as one poster mentioned, you have to get down on your knees in front of the right person to get the higher salary and/or promotion. After I left the company, my former manager - a female minority - informed me that my salary (a white male mid-level engineer) was only slightly less than her salary. My more-experienced female teammates who onboarded and trained me, were also getting paid less than me. The sad part is that my salary wasn't nearly what it should be. Leaving SG has been the best decision of my career so far.
dude that guy .. yes s-head
lol, that guy at ATI is a complete sh–head.
these places are not as different as you'd think. they shift their garbage between them and have the same headaches and reindeer games. leadership is non existent at ATI and the amazing talent exodus in 2020 is proof of that. Who knows how long it will take to show up in the products but ATI's main product exec from all i hear is a crybaby tyrant in over his head who values bootlicking over people who add value. their ceo is the biggest phoney in the industry. their head of hr has the personality of a urinal. i would expect ati to fall but when is uncertain.
To below poster, the VP of PM does not develop ArgOS... you sound like a disgruntled employee. I agree, however, ArgOS is poorly developed. I suppose it's the consequences of doing a lot of outsourcing.
I agree. The VP of Project management does nothing but run a social club.
Your salary will only go up if you don't do any real work, but kiss a** and talk a big game about how things could/should be done better.
Even better, roll out a t–d of a software architecture like ArgOS and claim victory yet it now takes longer to make games that are even more buggy than before.
depends on position and relationships (ie: if you used to work at Aristocrat you are more valuable with the new guard).
I am no longer at SG, and while I am happy to be gone I don’t feel I was underpaid. Was associate level at 100k, moved to senior level at 108k plus bonuses which was only 6k last year right before Covid out of 10% target.
Directors are closer to 130-140k I am sure. No way I was the close to my directors pay
I turned the job down. Went to ATI
I was at Bally and then Sci Games for 8 years. Everyone I worked with complained about low pay, no advancement, no opportunites, and upper management preventing people from changing roles. Avoid this cess pool.
Good to know. Scigames is recruiting me and I was intrested in salary compared to others. I understand VPs are at 170k, Directors at 110k and sr workers at 80k. That is what I was told for starting pay.
I doubt it.
I was an employee of a company that SG acquired. Prior to the acquisition, I received regular raises and promotions that equaled or exceeded the inflation rate.
After SG acquired my employer, I never received another promotion, and my annual raises never kept pace with inflation. Furthermore, my costs out of payroll for benefits increased. So it was essentially a pay decrease year after year.
Thank god I don't work there anymore.
