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

    Pros

    Salary is above average the market.
    Some of the best employees I worked with ever but most of them have now left for MS,Adobe Amazon and other top companies..All the best have left in 2012...from Manager to Team Lead to Engineer...Around 40 out of 150 have left.
    Recently some yearly trips and other stuff like providing some low quality food on the single floor where it operates has started.

    Cons

    The game of politics is played like anything Whoever kisses the asses of their bosses like dogs will get better appraisals. You would not come to know about it until the end when your appraisal is done.
    They say gaming company ..But the work is pathetic..Simple porting...A game can be ported in less than an hour...No Knowledge Transfer..Old employees will befool you...Would provoke you to stand up against your manager and in the backend will be at their feet ...
    Earlier flexible timings were there and that too has been suppressed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A hierarchy has been created...You cannot communicate directly with the top management..The top Management needs to remove people at the middle management who are basically befooling them by suppressing and delaying the delivery dates as per their comfort.

    Pros

    Exciting industry to work in.

    Cons

    1) The managers suck at their jobs and to hide it they lick the asses of their seniors which in turn do the same.
    2) Lot of politics and people cannot grow(in terms of salary/work/position) till the time they don't lick the seniors asses.
    3) Most of the leads doesn't even care about the work as they are busy in politics. You've to be very careful about what you say and where you say as that can be used against you in an unimaginable way you can never think of.
    4) Good work is not at all important there as even after working your asses off to get a product delivered you have to hear lame reasons to influence your rating in performance review. Reasons like, you don't mingle with team.(In my case, the lead was referring to him and his close junior as I was friends with everyone else), You do not fill up your hours properly.
    5) Even if you work your asses off and deliver stuff pretty fast, you will be tainted by saying "If you are spending more time in the office, either you're overloaded or you are incapable(which meant the latter as according to the management, no one was overloaded).
    6) The management never interacts with the team and lives in their cocoon and their only source of information is leads, which they uses for their benefits.
    7) Most of the people leave because they are frustrated by the politics in the company.
    8) I'll advise to look for some other gaming company(Bally's) and do not come here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing can't be changed till the time you don't change yourself. Stop all the politics that is going around at the very lower level in the company.
