    Pros

    Super good salary hike, flexible timings, not much work to do, not much to worry for.
    Office is at best location. Nearest to GIP

    Cons

    no work to do, so you are left with just addition in years of experience and no add on to technical knowledge.infact you tend to forget what you already knew.
    management is ever-changing the team structures.
    zero Job security, you can be fired anytime, any day, and just asked to leave the day you are fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good company, but India center should be managed well to make it more useful to company business.
    If management concentrates more on developing AIDC, rather then developing their own personal interests.

    Pros

    Most people come in contact with have a genuinely positive attitude about ATI. Individual teams tend to look of each other. There are some managers that takes care of their people not just one person but the whole team. Great community outreach. Active at at promoting personal and financial health. Pay is fair. Recognition program is improving.

    Cons

    Individual departments do not have an understanding what other departments go through.
    Heavy middle management. Regional employees health insurance could be improved.
    Employee bonus program for the ground troops simply sucks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help the individuals not just magament in each department what happens in the other department the directly relays on them. So each person has some understanding the daily challenges of others.

    Pros

    Global company
    Reasonable pay
    Some really good workers

    Cons

    Highly political environment
    Senior management (ELT) are highly dysfunctional with a lot of personal infighting.
    The CFO is a corporate psychopath and a passive agressive bully.
    Line managers just tow the company line
    Senior management are no genuine about constructive debate--there way or the highway.
    Very high levels of staff turn over
    Low moral
    Far too many ex-IGT cast offs--they trashed IGT and now they are trashing Aristocrat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    no really advise to management, but advice to the board is to consider replacing some of your senior management

    I worked at Aristocrat Technologies

    Pros

    People you work with directly, pay was decent, usually got requested time off (except for certain busy periods)

    Cons

    Management is horrible now. Like mentioned before, a rudderless titanic and all ship bosses are clueless. Scared to make a decision for fear of reprisal. Good ole boy mgt. workers are burning out from stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember what you preached, it starts from the top. Fire yourselves you incompetent baboons. You have no problem blaming others and firing them but your incompetence goes unchallenged out of fear of reprisal.
