Reno mentality keeps this potentially great company anchored to the box

Former Employee - Manager in Las Vegas, NV
Former Employee - Manager in Las Vegas, NV

I worked at International Game Technology full-time (more than a year)

Pros

paychecks don't bounce; free coffee; no accountability.

Cons

"Lifer" type of mentality/employee (very common in Reno) is more of a negative than a positive at IGT. It is basically an innovation killer for this wanna be high tech company. it is hard for fresh blood to inject new ideas; the company is rooted in a dated way of doing things as a result. getting anything done at IGT is a challenge because the culture and political navigation stream is so polluted. For great people it is a stepping stone. For bad people they can hide there for life.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Shift the big office from Reno to a new one in Silicon Valley.

    Pros

    Work/Life Balance
    work hour flexible for salary pay employee

    Cons

    There is no ladder for real talented engineer. An Engineer III could have super better technical skill than staff or senior staff engineer. Engineer level is a joke
