    Pros

    Steady paycheck
    Good health insurance
    Employee Gym
    Cafeteria

    Cons

    The manager/supervisors in my department are clueless on how to motivate and engage their employees. Instead of admitting it and trying to change the situation they blame the employees. The supervisors lack the basic knowledge needed to support their staff and often make huge mistakes, making the staff jump through hoops to fix their poor decisions. They are however very good at cruising the hallways and documenting who isn't at their desks. It is my understanding that this type of "leadership" is rampant throughout the company, which explains the large turnover. I am sure the CEO has encouraged this type of "leadership". They don't care if people are unhappy and even told our entire department this in a "motivational" meeting. Stay away from this company unless you enjoy being micromanged, documented and your career either destroyed or die a slow death.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and smell the coffee! Instead of blaming the employees for the poor work environment you need to look within yourself. Do something positive to change the situation. I've heard IGT used to be a great company to work for. Help it to move back in that direction.

    Pros

    It used to be a great company, with great resources and talent. and there's still a vast amount
    of experience and forward thinking within the group. Hopefully IGT can be a great company again.

    Cons

    There certainly is a huge disconnect between upper management and the employees at IGT. People are leaving in droves due to the poor treatment by the new management. Management that are generally new to the gaming industry and have little if any experience when they come through the doors. There is an overpowering sense of arrogance and ignorance from these people who generally treat the employees with contempt and neglect. Very sad considering it was once a great company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    These people don't take advice. That's the problem. but if they did, i'd suggest that they recognize some of the talent that they have within the walls and promote some of these people before they move on. Spend more time talking to people at ground level. Witness the talent and enthusiasm that still exists even when the company seems to be sinking fast. There really is a vast amount of talent and experience that is just not being utilized.
