Was a great growing opportunity in the beginning.

Director of Compliance (Former Employee)
Reno, NV

I worked at International Game Technology full-time for more than a year

ProsLots of mobility in a number of areas. You can stay in one position or look for other opportunities in a wealth of business opportunities

ConsCulture change from the past growing years. Very focused on the bottom line and will squeeze every drop of blood from employees. Constant state of tension with layoffs continual and constant cost cutting measures.

Advice to Senior ManagementWill need to gain the trust of employees again, the cost cutting and layoff have taken a toll on the hearts and minds of your employees!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Start it as awesome position.

Software Quality Assurance (Current Employee)
Las Vegas, NV

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

ConsPay stopped being awesome.
Crabby managers.
no promotions.
Lay offs

Advice to Senior ManagementThe employees make the company, not the amount of managers you hire. Happy employee, more productivity.

Pretty good overall, decent people to work with with a few bad eggs! Decent company.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at International Game Technology full-time for more than a year

ProsNice work environment for the most part. Fun projects, good management for the most part. I've enjoyed my time working for IGT so far. There are studio politics, but I think you get that everywhere you go.

ConsSome of us don't drink the coffee you try give away, try something like soda for folks who don't drink coffee. Benefits are a little lackluster. I think the cafeteria is overpriced for what you get in return.

Advice to Senior ManagementGetting rid of people who don't enjoy working for IGT. What's the point of working somewhere if you complain all the time. Find a new gig!

Upper management expects more than they themselves produce. Goofy HR sayings all over the place. Restructuring always.

Project Manager (Former Employee)
Las Vegas, NV

I worked at International Game Technology full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat employees. Some great managers.

ConsPolitical. Upper management restructure all the time. C-Levels are in over their head and don't appreciate talent. Throw money at the wrong things. Still aren't seeing the stock return we did with Mathews!

Advice to Senior ManagementMove on....please you have ruined a once great gaming king to a joke/stepping stone for employees. The company Jet isn't your personal taxi. The millions you dumped into making the executive row pretty was pointless as you are rarely there and then lay off yet more employees. Shame on you!

Good place to work

Senior Accountant (Current Employee)
Reno, NV

I have been working at International Game Technology full-time for more than a year

ProsProfessional atmosphere, no jerks, no bullies (that I have encountered)

ConsAccounting jobs are narrow in scope, but that is due to the size of the company

Advice to Senior ManagementShare your vision and the direction of the company with employees. It seems we're all over the place. Manufacturing, internet gaming, progressive systems, all of them, some of them? Where are we goingl?

A useful stepping stone

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Las Vegas, NV

I have been working at International Game Technology full-time for more than a year

ProsThey are making the transition to work with more current technology which makes for good resume fodder. The benefits and compensation are good for the area (NV) but not the best. Casual dress code, flexible schedule, clean and modern office / cafeteria.

ConsThere are many more poor performers than people who can think for themselves and do so intelligently. Depending on your group you may be treated as another number rather than an individual.

Advice to Senior ManagementHold poor performers accountable and let high performers spread their wings.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
