    Pros

    I had the greatest boss in the world. I left after they laid him off.

    Cons

    Sr mgmt. has no gaming experience and are proud of the fact. They make ridiculous decisions. Only Australian yes men get promoted. You worked daily wondering if today was the day you would get made "redundant"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some people with US gaming experience and listen to them. Get rid of they Ozzy yes boys.

    I have been working at Aristocrat Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Decent Company as a whole, good benefits and pretty work space/toilets

    Cons

    Depending where you work aka department (not a small group the entire department) you will need to deal with marginally qualified micro managers. They have a cult like behavior pushed from their managers who pretty push all responsibilities down and blame team members for all the mishaps. You can do 1000 extra things but when you miss 1 thing in the 1000 items you get shamed.

    Limited career advancement as much of hiring/work is planned in India. This implies you may be working 2 jobs in 1. The US timezone and also later during the day

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When people started leaving it was already late, time is of the essence

    Pros

    Benefits and pay, working conditions might improve if they take the time to sort everything out,otherwise it's okay

    Cons

    Management does not have a clue
    Being a "valued employee" for 5 plus years,perfect attendance, requested PTO, it was denied,they knew the importance of the time off requested

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house with middle mgmt..... need more diversity ... give working employees an opportunity to advance,instead of putting the "friends of friends" in positions that they know nothing of.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Las Vegas, NV

    I worked at Aristocrat Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Generally good people in the ranks, decent pay. Good facilities. Good working environment. Community involvement programs. Good design and development technology.

    Cons

    Poor morale. Poor senior management. Don't plan on staying long. If you don't leave on your own, you'll generally be shown the door within a few years. The programs designed to change the culture are just window dressing. Lots of politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide genuine leadership.

    I worked at Aristocrat Technologies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits. Big company with a small company atmosphere. Many employees try to make a difference.

    Cons

    Processes and procedures are not documented. If it is, it is not being followed. Archaic/obsolete PLM system. Old world relationships of hardware/electrical engineers with suppliers and coworkers hinder honest business practices.
    Australian headquarters reluctant to share power with the USA location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace M2K. Processess and procedures need to be documented and followed - Aristocrat is not mom and pop business.
