I have been working at International Game Technology full-time (more than an year)

Pros

They are making the transition to work with more current technology which makes for good resume fodder. The benefits and compensation are good for the area (NV) but not the best. Casual dress code, flexible schedule, clean and modern office / cafeteria.

Cons

There are many more poor performers than people who can think for themselves and do so intelligently. Depending on your group you may be treated as another number rather than an individual.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hold poor performers accountable and let high performers spread their wings.

    I worked at International Game Technology full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Rank and file employees generally nice to work with, fair salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Employees fear for their jobs, layoffs at the drop of a hat, hemorrhaging experienced employees right and left, abysmal working conditions, facilities are dirty, cluttered and in many cases haven't been updated since built, save for a few "showcase" areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave. Seriously, you've done enough damage to this once titan of the gaming industry. Take your golden parachute, your utter disrespect for the employees and customers, your complete lack of skill at running a company of any size and move on down the road.

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

    Pros

    They've got a gym and cafeteria on-site, and haven't axed the tuition reimbursement program yet. Free coffee (for now).

    Cons

    To name a few:

    More layoffs - Another 120 employees were let go this week even though the company forecast seems to be improving. The timing (right before bonus season), and significant amount of money spent on a new logo probably had something to do with it.

    Infrequent, unsubstantial raises - Only just barely above cost of living increases. New hires from outside the company for the same position consistently make more than people promoted from within.

    Outdated, specialized software/tools make it difficult to keep skills current, keep boredom at bay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote internal employees first, and pay them what you'd pay someone coming in from outside. Firing people right before bonuses (and right after spending an obscene amount of money on a new logo) seems tacky.
