I have been working at International Game Technology

Pros

Flexible work schedule
Culture of innovation and leadership

Very good compensation

Cons

It gets really hot in Las Vegas in the summer
It gets really windy when it's not hot
The water here is awful
More experienced employees often complain too much
Internet connections have too many ports closed off (IT is rightfully paranoid of attacks)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management and direction at International Game Technology has been much criticized. Both internally and externally. There is a corporate culture that enables this criticism, and it does not reflect well on the company. The employees need to have more of a sense of pride in their company, and if they don't like it, quit first, and look for work second, or else keep criticisms to yourself. Whether it is in the break room or on a publicly accessible website, we do not need employees being critical of management which is faced with very difficult economic times. That time could be better spent in more productive ways. It's time to hunker down and get to work, not question leadership.

    I have been working at International Game Technology

    Pros

    Accounting management is decent
    Expected work week for rank and file is 40 hours

    Cons

    New senior management group is impossible to work with, very demanding and high sense of entitlement
    Almost no management promotion potential, all candidates are hired from outside

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect all employees! The production workers building the machines and the engineers who make the software and the accountants who keep the company from being shut down by various oversight boards are just as vital to its success as you are!
