    Pros

    If you can speak the political language you can fail to the top

    Cons

    If you want to improve anything make sure you can do it alone and others don't need to contribute

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan ahead instead of making everything an emergency

    Pros

    People are easy to get along with, full bar located in showroom that gets opened now and then for employees.

    Cons

    Morale has gone way down in past year or so, too many changes at the top. Company is based in Australia, and they don't really have a feel for the US market, which hurts the business in teh US.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to the employees, and reward them for doing good things. Not all the talent in this company is located in Australia, much of it is in the US, and the US should be given the respect it is due.

    Pros

    good salary, work life balance

    Cons

    top management changes frequently; hire and fire; unprofessional culture.

    PMO department is useless. They are non-technical and dont have an idea of quality, deliveries, and efforts needed. They just push to meet the deadlines without understanding the complexity of the problem. They dont follow anything and ask development teams and testing to do everything. They play politics also and pass wrong feedback for whomsoever they are not comfortable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take people from good colleges, and good attitude people.

    Pros

    1:Good Technical work

    3:Good work life balance

    Cons

    1:They hire when they need and fire when your job is done. Hardly any scope to move to different project as number of projects are limited.
    2:No scope to grow
    3: No onsite

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better hire people on contract basis rather than permanently hiring them and then firing them once their part is done.
    Give good salary hike to retain employees.

    Worst Management...ever seen in Indian IT scene

    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Noida (India)
    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Noida (India)

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

    Pros

    No pros for employees who actually work to achieve targets, single digit hike(once you join) as promotions and hikes are reserved for chelas of managers, no performance review for group heads , only criteria is to lick shoes of reporting managers. No performance needed.

    Cons

    best company for ruining one's illustrious career.
    No hike after joining hike(less then services company..literally)
    Pathetic HR (compensation benefits)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    grow up and just try to give interview outside (just to know your level and standing in competitive world) If you already know it and delibrately do foot licking of your reporting managers( then life already lost)

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

    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

    Big Brand ...
    rest nothing is good

    Cons

    Team Head are really disgusting and believe in Politics.... They have focus in doing missive thing rather than a Qualitative delivery of the products. Only problem is that I saw they don't have strong process in place and because they hire people at their role and hiding things from the management. Hiring is completely scam. I heard from my friend they hired 30 people in a month and all were bogus and Fraud case. they dissolve 26 people team. Big Scam worst place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Audit the People starting from Lead to Head deeply and ask the justification for every proposal they are presenting.

    I have been working at Aristocrat Technologies full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.
