    Pros

    - IGT being acquired by GTECH. New management is interested in growing the company again.
    - New senior management is setting strategy and making decisions.
    - The people are generally good at their jobs and easy to work with.

    Cons

    - Hoping that most of the cons left with old senior management when IGT was acquired by GTECH.

    Advice to Management

    N/A. All new senior management after IGT was acquired. So far they seem pretty good.

    Pros

    Flexibility. I work from home and rarely hear from my boss.

    Cons

    I rarely hear from my boss. There is no leadership and it seems the only way to get ahead in this company is through years spent. It doesn't matter if you have more knowledge than the rest or get more accomplished. It matters either that you spent more time doing it or that you spent more time pointing out to everyone that you've done it.

    Advice to Management

    Spend the time to understand what your employees strengths are and work on those. Don't hold everyone's had all the time, they will thank you for it.

    You already ran a once good company into the ground and sold it to a lottery company from Europe, you've already done all the damage you can do. Good thing you are all leaving once the sale closes.

    Pros

    If you hire into upper management huge bonuses are normal.

    Cons

    Most dysfunctional company ever! Supervision is clueless and management only looks out for themselves. Only thing that counts is numbers. Quantity VS Quality and quality looses every time. Moral is lowest I have seen in over 15 years since I have been here. Do yourself a favor. Avoid this place at all cost!

    Advice to Management

    Quit giving false promises.

    Pros

    Coworkers are amiable for the most part. Work life balance is good.

    Cons

    So many layers of middle management, impossible to advance or get a raise unless you throw people under the bus. A lot of people that are calling the shots are out of touch. CEO is corrupt, and her away status reaches days in triple digits. Reno HQ has an odd superiority complex.

    Advice to Management

    Try to thin yourselves, too many channels need to be consulted when we want something as simple as a hard drive. (It took me 2 years.) You have talented people eager to do much more, but there absolutely no incentives to work harder than what is needed. Old methods that worked in the 80's don't work now, change your scope and your courses of action. The newer generation of employees aren't moved by fear, and will find employment elsewhere.

    Pros

    people were wonderful to work with. benefits were great in the beginning, but like all corp's these days, the benies are not what they used to be.

    Cons

    expectations of personnel working long hard hours was unbelievable; Reno worked long hours, Beijing did as well. However, right under corporate headquarters noses, these folks worked less than their 8. In by 9a, hour and a half lunches and out the door long before 5p ever hit. And NO ONE ever said a thing to anyone about it. EVER!

    Advice to Management

    take a real hard look at who you have working. there are not many actual 'working' personnel anymore and the ones there are not the ones who created the beast. plus, with fewer 'workers' the load is heavy and the people just are not going to do ALL the work. too many chiefs and not enough indians as they say.....

    Pros

    Good benefits and flexible schedules for work life balance.

    Cons

    Backbiting culture from legacy of too many lay offs. Very little sharing of information - 'knowledge is power' attitude. Team playing mentality the worse I have ever experienced.

    Advice to Management

    Reshuffle the cards and hit a complete 'refresh' on the reporting structures and culture

    Pros

    Great co workers, and a solid group of professionals focused on doing a good job. Generally a good work life balance, and most line managers understand the push / pull of daily life.

    Cons

    Many of the best employees have left for greener pastures. Upper Management is horribly out of touch with little reward for going above and beyond. Creating an environment of just getting by.

    Advice to Management

    Try to focus on your talent and retain up and comers not just the seasoned has beens
