I have been working at International Game Technology

Pros

low pressure, perfect work-life balance environment. Compensation and Benefits are good if not the best in the industry.

Cons

lot of silos between teams and no career growth opportunities once stuck in a team, especially if you are the person looking to work on cutting edge technologies and unfortunately you land up in the team working on legacy applications.

No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The global leader in our industry
    Dynamic and motivating Sr. leadership
    Takes advantage of every opportuity to increase employee engagement
    Excellent benefit offerings
    Generous compensation packages
    Amazing on-site cafe and fitness center (No charge!!) Even a childcare center on-site in Reno.

    Cons

    IGT, as an organization, is growing. Making huge strides internationally. With that growth comes opportunity, which affects some positively and others negatively. That being said, growth proved that there were many redundancies within the organization and, like many companies, IGT was forced to make change a few years back. Unfortunately that impacted many employees and their careers. Any time people are affected negatively, this can leave a bruise on an organizations reputation, leaving others to wonder if the organization is right for them to consider as a prospective next step in their career. Fortunately, with that change, brought new "captain's at the helm" which have worked tirelessly to polish IGT and keep it #1 in the industry :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing! Employee engagement is up and there are better and more amazing opportunities at IGT than ever before. I look forward to many more years of continued contribution to our great comapny!
