Magazine management means constant changes, with hardly any improvements for the actual employees.

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

Pros

Can gain experience in your craft / skill(s). Lower management understands how their employees feel and do what they can to keep them happy.

Cons

Upper management will attempt to push out changes that will only affect the people at the lowest rungs, without first consulting them for their opinion on the matter.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop wasting money with all these attempts to boost morale with posters and so called "rewards". You want to truly reward the people working there, invest in the employees as a whole; whether that be through pay increases / promotions, employee events, or even putting pinball machines back in the break room(s).

    I worked at International Game Technology full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, work life balance, self-authored performance reviews, some cool game themes, really talented engineers and artists.

    Cons

    IGT has more silos than NORAD. Most, if not all, management (mid-level and above) is in over their head. True decision makers are few and far between... decision by committee is the norm because of the silos. There is no lack of ideas from those in the trenches, ideas that could be the next TITO for IGT. However, and idea without management support to execute said idea is just converting Oxygen to CO2. Overall, the corporate culture is on par with a high school senior prom. The most talented and productive staff have moved on to work for the competition. The irony is that IGT is the instigator of this knowledge transfer by way of "cost reducing" layoffs. Most successful technology companies these days acqui-hire new talent, IGT has cornered the market on cost-to-fire through severance payouts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Jump out with your golden parachute while you still can.

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

    Pros

    I am able to educate my peers and director, which teaches them how they should be conducting their jobs. Most do not know how to write a proper sentence.

    Cons

    Absolutely dreadful workplace environment! The Company does not value employees and is terrible at evaluating talent. They simply do not care -- you are just a number at IGT -- there is no concern about employee morale, development or growth. The CEO just cares about her fancy airplane (which she forgets is the company's .. not her personal limousine). You can work here for years and years without ever seeing the CEO or most C-levels. They dont care about the workforce and are disinterested in the gambling industry (and decisions flow accordingly). Curmudgeons and dolts abound in my department unfortunately. I do not recommend this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please eliminate the dolts and curmudgeons; learn to embrace your best employees and encourage personal development!
