Reno mentality keeps this potentially great company anchored to the box

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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.

    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
