I have been working at International Game Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

IGT provides interesting and challenging work, good work life balance, at the leading slot manufacturer. Compared to the video game industry the compensation is fair to good. There are opportunity for travel as the company has offices all over the world. The company is diverse in looking at online gambling, slots, mobile, and even social gaming

Cons

The gambling industry as a whole moves at a very slow pace for innovation, IGT is no exception. IGT is well off its highpoint 8 years ago so morale for people who have been there during those times is low

    I have been working at International Game Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free drinking water and coffee. I like the gym located within the facilities. The parking lot is very big. Easy badge access into the facility. People from other departments leave candy on their desks, so I walk around during my breaks and get unlimited free candy!

    Cons

    Management often uses big words at meetings, but everything sounds forced and uninspired. The truth is I think they don't like working here either and it shows in their everyday attitude. If you do have a question or concern, they will say something like "I'll get back to you on that," then later they return with what feels like a canned answer they looked up online or in a management book. They seem to prefer communicating via email and not face-to-face, even though their cubicles are located a few feet away. Management always takes the side of a Supervisor over an employee if any kind of dispute arises and therefore it is best if you take your issue to HR. However, HR will ask why you didn't take the issue to your manager before talking to HR. It's a very frustrating process. When applying out to other departments, you are treated like an outsider at the interview. IGT does not seem to like promoting from within. And when your Supervisor finds out you applied to another department, they will ask you why you don't like your current job. If someone is actually promoted within the department, Management will flat out -lie- and say there's a rule that states that the promoted person isn't allowed to apply for a job in another department for at least a year. When employees from other departments walk by the room I work in, they sometimes stop and stare at you through the window. Do you like being stared at while you are trying to work?

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect and try to have a more positive outlook.

    I worked at International Game Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people to work with, talented individuals, salary not bad.

    Cons

    Good old white boy mentality through out the company. Minorities have to prove themselves and majority of the time will not be sufficient. We had a very talented software tester he left and got tired of the way he was treat it.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the good 'ol boy networks you have in Reno and Las Vegas and the talent will flourish with awesome ideas and games.
