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

Pros

Was a great co. Smart people and friends to work with.

Cons

Multiple team reshuffles, multiple layoffs have everyone fearful and paranoid

Advice to ManagementAdvice

why spend millions on new branding, logos, management bonuses, then lay off hundreds of employees?
No one in charge saw the spending and market loss coming? How many more layoffs to come?

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

    Pros

    Everybody seemed easy going compared to most places. I also worked at Bally Tech and I hated it there! Way too up tight. IGT is a better place to work for hands down except the fact that everyone is scared of getting laid off!

    Cons

    Big budget cuts as of late but the pay was still better and the benefits were good for comparable jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everybody is afraid of losing their jobs. It really hurts to see the execs spending money on new office furniture and also report good earnings when they are laying off friends and family all at the same time.

    I worked at International Game Technology full-time

    Pros

    The people are what made this a wonderful place to work.

    Cons

    I was one of the 350 people who were laid off, so that was a bit of a negative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the execs had each taken a little pay cut, it could have saved some of little people...IMO
