I worked at Aristocrat Technologies

Pros

they pay well over the median in many roles. It's a highly political work environment and if you have the street smarts you can fail upwardly there in a spectacular way. The game development people are some of the best and most innovative in the industry.

Cons

The politics, the inept and dissconnection of the senior management team with the core business and the product itself, the number of low talent middle managers, the greedy mindset of many of the suits. The footy boofhead mentality of a number of the old guard. The fundamental lack of respect

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Realise that the product is the thing that will create wealth and stability not some remarkable yet undefined business accumen on the part of the sales or marketing team. The whole company should understand the product better. The lead games development guys are getting past their prime and succession plans should be more on the agenda. The golden geese are getting old.

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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