I have been working at International Game Technology

Pros

In an area of high unemployment, I receive a steady paycheck for now.

Cons

- No merit pay increases because the budget is 'frozen,' supposedly (strange, as I know our manager is getting their yearly bonus)
- Anyone who speaks up with ideas to improve the department becomes the victim of negative managerial scrutiny
- Management is continually absent at best, useless at worst
- Morale is down across the entire office, in every department
- No job security to speak of
- Employee performance is measured entirely by unrealistic metrics that have no actual bearing on the real-world work environment or actual productivity

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hurry up and outsource the rest of the company to China so we can stop with the facade already.

    Pros

    Many of the employees are kind, intelligent, talented, and a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Little to no chance for career advancement, raises and bonuses practically non-existent. Management keeps reorganizing the company with the hopes that they'll find the perfect configuration which will magically make the company more profitable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, especially the ones who have been with the company for years. Many of them have unique insights you probably haven't considered. Stop repeating the same old mistakes.

    I worked at International Game Technology

    Pros

    Amazing benefits package! Had great co-workers as well as upper management. Many chances for advancement. I hope to see this company start to thrive as it once did. Which at the point the bonuses were fulfilling, as well as the recognition for employees.

    Cons

    The lays off have been quite devastating...considering that is the fact I am not longer there. Sometimes if you don't know the right people you will be overlooked for a position you are most definitely qualified for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to recognize the employees that remain loyal and are still there.
