    I have been working at Aristocrat Technologies (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They know what needs to be done and are getting there.

    Cons

    I guess it is which team you are in? The culture in my team was not professional. Some immature poor developers controlling the meetings is disappointing.

    Advice to Management

    Do not let inexperience poor developers usurp positions that are not theirs. Manage and see what happens, actions speak louder than words.

    I have been working at Aristocrat Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The good news is that there are teams, agile teams (well sorta), dysfunctional teams, but still teams. If you like doing the same ole comforting thing every week, you'll fit right in.

    Cons

    Don't believe the "life balance" mantra they use in recruiting. It is still a workshop and if you are sick for day or two then you MUST make up for that time and work. So, don't get sick or plan on working through your weekend! The shop is pretty limited in advancement. Just not a lot of room to grow into any position.

    Pros

    Great Benefits. Most people great to work with.

    Cons

    They do work the ladies. Somehow the gentlemen seem to always leave on time. Remnants of the good ol'boy club, perhaps.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

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