    Pros

    The middle managers and below work really hard. Really good team works amongst this level of managers.

    Cons

    Dealing with the slowing moving, short sighted, not on the same page Senior level executives. Have the head office is not helpful. All major players in the industry are US based.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some good leaders

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits about average for Las Vegas.

    Cons

    Upper management likes to talk the talk but NO EXECUTION!!!! The directive comes from AU and the USA is the dumping ground for incompetent Upper Management that is very Chauvinistic. If you try to change things and management does not like you, find a another job because they will fire you!!

    Advice to Management

    You are riding the boat and not helping the company succeed. Either start join in and become a leader or the company is DOOMED.

    Pros

    Good team of workers, people want to do a good job, good pay, and good benefits. There is talent in the company at the mid-level and line level.

    Cons

    The biggest problem that ATI has is with Sr. Management. They place incompetent people into Sr. roles. AU uses the US as a dumping ground for poor leaders and talk a good game when it comes to change but never follow through with any good initiatives. I guess it just costs to much to be good. They want only cool-aid drinkers and no one that will challenge poor choices the company makes.

    Advice to Management

    Step back and see what your poor choices are doing to the company.

    Pros

    Pros – 1) Good Salary
    2) Perfect Work-life balance
    3) Flexible time schedule
    4) Not much pressure.

    Cons

    1) Not much career growth. Seems like you hit a ceiling at a point.
    2) Lack of training opportunities.
    3) High level management is bad. They don't have any vision and when they do come up with a plan, they tend to fail in execution -- time and time again...
    4) A lot of processes that take time away from producing product and are hard to follow.

    Advice to Management

    Be innovative with a clear vision and EXECUTE and follow through on the vision. Nothing will bring scorn faster than failing to follow through on plans time and time again.

    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 Management

    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.
