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 Management

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 (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many coworkers were fun people and good to work with, but that depends which department you had to deal with. The people in Tech Services and in D&D are as much like a family as a company/department can be. IT Department tried hard.

    Cons

    There is so much finger pointing and bullying by Accounting and Sales, it has an uninvolved HR department, and a lot of people with the "It's not my job" attitude, it all really gets in the way of what could be accomplished with a corporate culture having the right mind set. Also, promotion is difficult, if not next to impossible, if you are not a Caucasian male from Australia...with New Zealand and S. Africa being the next runners up. Low on the pay scale.

    Advice to Management

    HR should stop ignoring the bad behavior, and the company overall would do better if it stopped blindly promoting only the glad handers and good old Aussie boys, or bringing in new management from outside. It's very disheartening to long time employees who are doing all the work, but get passed over again and again for promotions.
