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.

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.

Layoffs to continue

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

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...

Everyone will be sold off

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

Not at Bally or what every they call it now :)

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.
