    Pros

    Great PTO and Benefits. Pay is fair for most jobs/levels.

    Cons

    Poor management, no appreciation, beyond horrible communication and morale is in the tank.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on replacing upper level management with competent and caring leaders. The management in place is only there to collect their paychecks and they never even say thank you. Questionable practices and interpersonal relationships in many instances as well.

    Pros

    Anyone who isn't intimidated by a demanding work environment and the opportunity to interact with skillful, intelligent people who focus on getting things done will probably enjoy their work experience.

    Cons

    The breakneck pace of product development may be a contributing factor to low employee morale and an unusual turnover rate that has not improved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone needs to be rowing the boat in unison, and in the same direction.

    I worked at Aristocrat Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    lots of feedback(some even usefull), sometimes easy to contact people, scheduling was usually clear, end user information (i.e. PAR sheets, Base chip information, etc..) was easily accessible for field techs.

    Cons

    obsessive focus on Overtime to the deteriment of normal operations, questionible job standards(i.e. "get the job done" vs "the approved way is.."), routine unequal division of labor among remote techs,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember who is the most important person in the company is: THE CUSTOMER. No customers, no business. No business, no job.

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay.
    Generally good work-life balance.

    Cons

    If you have an accent or are in with the right people (read: cliques), you'll have more opportunities for advancement within U.S. and abroad.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits.
    Better exposure to the gaming industry because company is a larger player.

    Cons

    Always playing catch up with competitors.
    Sr. Management decisions are poor.
    Indian Development Center is a disaster, U.S. teams always coming to the rescue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourself. Absent that, please hire more people that actually have gaming or casino experience. Also, new U.S graduates are just as competent and will have a higher probability of making the job a career than Indian consultants.

    Pros

    great work life balance
    very talented people to work with
    generally a fun place to work
    people are overall pretty nice and welcoming
    great insight into gaming

    Cons

    two things help you move up: having an accent and being a man. Throw in being a caucasion and you are golden.
    lots and lots of people get overlooked regularly. It's the same people all the time who get recognized.
    Horrible silo problem - poor communication problems between departments. They've been working on it, at least.
    Morale sank a couple of years ago...thus far efforts to correct aren't working as well as they could.
    No hope for growth in most areas. Where you come in is where you'll stay.
    Never heard of anyone getting an amazing raise here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Notice your people -- all of them. Even the little guys. It's the difference between retaining great talent throughout the organization and consistent turnover. Spend less time bragging about what new top talent we got (leaving everyone to wonder how much they must be making) and more time nuturing the talent you already have.
