Pros

Free Coffee, sugar, and cream. Many co-workers are great and are trying to get by just like you. Health insurance is fantastic.

Cons

The company will 100% take advantage of salaried employees and force you to work many hours over a regular shift. They will also recall you at any time in the middle of the night or on weekends for the smallest problems. This issue is normal operating procedure, not a rare occurrence.

They take away headcounts from various departments after a worker leaves meaning that less people are inundated with more work. Additionally, the remaining workers are not given enough training or resources to do a decent job.

Management at all levels is concerned with covering their own rears, thus they will kowtow to anyone above them. There is no planning. When upper management has a pet project, it will be funded just enough to implement the idea. No training or budget for support will be provided thereafter.

The 401k was a joke for so many years. This has been recently changed but it is still sub-par.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of CEO. Things started going way downhill after she was hired. Grow a pair to say "no" to bad ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IGT was once an employee-centered, vibrant place to work. Employees used to rave about working there, which was fantastic free marketing to the community. Current CEO does not have experience bringing a big business successfully through very troubling times. Bring in a CEO who knows how to navigate, and who also knows a team makes it through ...when there is a team. Bring back service recognition awards - inexpensive rewards yet truly powerful in creating and maintaining employee morale.
