An Insider's view of Camelot Illinois

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

"This company TRULY understands work-life balance. It's not just a buzzword or overused phrase here. Team members are encouraged to be in the office as much as possible, but that's because collaboration is the key to our success. However, management completely understands the occasional need for that work-from-home day to tend to whatever."

Matt Wenzel

Business Analyst

What projects are you most excited about?

We’re constantly working on highlighting all the benefits the Lottery brings to the state, specifically its contributions to the Common School Fund, Capital Projects Fund, and our specialty causes: MS, HIV/AIDS, Special Olympics, Breast Cancer and Veterans charities. We want Illinoisans to know about and take part in contributing to these causes.

Emily Behn

Public Affairs Associate

What are some things you learned at the company?

Since joining Camelot Illinois, I helped build the Insights function, which I now lead. I love flexing between managing others and driving strategic decision-making across the organization. We are simultaneously figuring out our individual contributions, as well as how we work together to run the business. Its challenging and personally rewarding!


Director Of Insights

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

People win the Lottery every day. From a return on the price of the ticket to $1,000 to $200 million, every dollar makes a positive impact on winners lives, and, in return, to the citizens of the state. We are working to restore faith in the Illinois Lottery and reassure Illinoisans that players do win.
