I worked at International Game Technology

Pros

Amazing benefits package! Had great co-workers as well as upper management. Many chances for advancement. I hope to see this company start to thrive as it once did. Which at the point the bonuses were fulfilling, as well as the recognition for employees.

Cons

The lays off have been quite devastating...considering that is the fact I am not longer there. Sometimes if you don't know the right people you will be overlooked for a position you are most definitely qualified for.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to recognize the employees that remain loyal and are still there.

    I have been working at International Game Technology

    Pros

    . Great co workers and adequate benefits.

    Cons

    Worklife balance is terrible. THey expect workers to be away from their families weeks on end trying to install a product that is sub-standard. Upper management is blind to their sub standard product and lack of knowledgable employees to implement it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of your office and go on some installs and go live! Hear your customers and employees needs. Review your middle managment - it is stale expecially in Systems Management

    I worked at International Game Technology

    Pros

    Lots of wasteful spending to buy unnecessary equipment that people take home and use for their personal use.
    IGT has no repercussions for lack of accountability.

    Cons

    You will be laid-off once the CRDC (China Research and Development Center) is fully functional and up to speed.
    You will be reprimanded for thinking outside the box with suggestions for improvement and efficiency.
    You will be expected to NOT question authority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop sending our jobs over to China! Engineering has been the hardest hit department up until now. Once the IPAL Lab is fully functional and expanded and all of the PA Engineers in China have been fully trained the number of PA Engineers here in the US will be reduced extensively. Executive Management is planning even more of an expansion in CRDC over the next year or so, which will result in the reduction of labor in the US (LV & Reno).

    Also once the "big upgrade in Detroit" is complete the Installations and Upgrade teams will reduced by almost a third from Managers on down.

    Good Luck whoever is left and get out if you can!
