Great coworkers, total lack of vision by upper management.

I worked at International Game Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Work with smart people. Regular 40 hour work weeks unlike some other engineering jobs. Decent benefits. Free gym.

Cons

Low Pay compared to similar positions in other companies. No room for promotion. No budget for raises. Senior management is disconnected from day to day operations.

Advice to Management

The current plan isn't working. Some serious research needs to be done on way our products are not having the same success as in the past and how to stop giving up our market share to the competition. The board of directors need to stop thinking short term and focus on improving the company long term. Also, find a CEO that knows gaming. Patti is not that CEO, it is time for her to go.

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

    Pros

    Can use a stale calzone from the cafeteria to commit suicide. Nine dollar garbanzo bean salads. The coffee finally has flavor. Free binders. Tangerine golf shirts for middle management. Plenty of vacant conference rooms to nap in.

    Cons

    People whining about the layoffs. The best part of working here is getting fired from here. One of the dumbest re-branding campaigns in history. The people worth getting a drink with left long ago.

    Advice to Management

    Wash your hands before you leave the bathroom.

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

    Pros

    The best thing about IGT is the ability for senior management to be completely out of touch. People who have never been in a casino are remote managing huge parts of the company and don't know the people, the culture, nor the customers. Just throwing proverbial darts in the dark and stumbling around in the dark like drunken sailors in a fun house.

    Cons

    The fact that none of the staff gets to ride on the CEO's 70 million dollar corporate jet...that takes her from her home in the bay area, to ski in Colorado, to France all under the guise of "tech conferences". I would like to see that jet someday...

    Advice to Management

    Open a lemonade stand in the parking lot and sell the 70 million dollar corporate jet the CEO wings around on.
