Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Reno, NV

I have been working at International Game Technology

Pros

-Paycheck
-Benefits are still ok, although health insurance is expensive

Cons

-Shrinking or disappearing benefits like profit sharing and cash sharing
-External candidates being favored for job openings
-Some people got only 3% raises for promotions, while external candidates would be paid more
-Arrogant senior management has no respect for employees
-Senior management moved to LV, there's very little communication to non manager employees from "the top"
-Peak Performers is propaganda and a joke. Take away benefits from 5000 employees and then give 50 employees and their SO's a nice getaway to a fancy resort - yeah, makes sense

Advice to ManagementAdvice

No hope for this senior management, they know better. Advise: more humility, listen to your employees, value and retain talent. Economy will improve and the company will stand up on its feet again, but who will be left?

    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Reno, NV

    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.
