I have been working at International Game Technology full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

The compensation is pretty good. I suppose there are or will be lots of opportunities opening up because everyone is leaving or getting let go.

Cons

From the top down, there seems to be a lack of understanding of how to turn things around and get this place back on track. It feels like a mad scramble, grasping at straws, in an attempt to hold market share.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I've worked directly with the executives and they are complete idiots, especially the CEO. The longer Patti is here, the worse it gets.

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

    Pros

    The paychecks were on time. Some of the co-workers were great people to know.

    Cons

    The upper management of the company don't understand the industry nor regulatory issues. A lot of the projects in the company are handled like it has never been done before, even when those projects are periodic events. The engineering jobs are located in Reno or Las Vegas, neither of which is the best place to be when looking for something better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some advisors that know the industry. Lose a lot of the VPs and above, 42 for a company of less than 4000?
