    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?

    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.
