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

Pros

Many different areas to work
Decent benefits and salary
Always new things to work on and learn
Working towards standardization of processes

Cons

Constant restructuring that invalidates years of hard work when suddenly under a new boss
Higher value given to theoretical external hires than knowledgeable people working at the company
Short staffed for number of projects and other work

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value some of your internal resources more highly than the next hire and hire more staff level people. The most talented leaders in the world cannot execute without someone to actually perform the tasks.

    Picture 'Office Space' meets 'Idiocracy' to get an idea of what it's like to work here.

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

    Pros

    Some very good people and even a handful of very good middle managers.
    Work hours are reasonable if you work in the right department.
    Some get free cowboys boots.

    Cons

    Shameless self-promoters fast tracked for promotion and recognition.
    Poor, destructive employees retained and promoted, good employees quit, often to less paying jobs just to escape.
    No peer reviews to filter out above.
    Obscene non-compete agreement strangles career opportunities for individual contributors.
    Long standing employees fired and then told to sign 1 year non-compete or not receive severance pittance.
    Executive management does not walk the talk.
    Executive hypocrisy - 2% cap on raises across the board, while CEO buys new GulfStream jet and uses it for personal trips.
    No golden parachutes for individual contributors.
    And on and on ... more to come in comments section.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Title says it all.
    Lead by example.
    Walk the talk and show us you have the courage to change.
    Get jobs at Taco Bell, you already know someone who can get you in.
