Pros

There are some great people working at IGT, at interactive we have all the right ideas, some very smart coworkers. Good work life balance here, no crazy hours other than emergencies.

Cons

There is so much political power playing at this company, it is almost impossible to get anything done. Senior management are mostly from other industries and are pretty clueless. The amount of time spent here trying to answer the same questions over and over is unbelievable. The policy of recruiting management from outside the company means career progression is almost nonexistent, if you want a promotion you pretty much have to leave.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

IGT is a depressing place, there is so much potential here. Try investing in your people to create loyalty and harness your workers ambitions, instead of relying on non-competes and just replacing people when they leave.

    Pros

    Co workers are supportive, they are just trying to get by like you are.

    Cons

    Very negative work environment. Supervisor berates employees and is known to shake her finger at you like you would a naughty child. Employees are constantly told how they screwed up yet not provided with the tools needed to do their jobs properly. All work is very manual as the company will not dedicate the resources to fix known problems. Don't expect to be praised when you do a good job with the meager resources available to you. It will get brushed under the carpet or someone else will get credit. Absolutely no career growth as IGT rarely promotes from within. If you are considering working here negotiate a really good salary because you will not move much beyond that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can you please get rid of the bad middle management that is in place. Training will not help these people.....it is way beyond that.

    Pros

    At one point, they had a bi-annual "cash give away"-thing for employees, which was pretty cool.

    Cons

    QA was really boring. There isn't much in the way of learning or growing.
