  1. Good company

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Reno, NV
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Reno, NV

    I worked at International Game Technology (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work environment and great people. Also had good pay and pretty good Benefits.

    Cons

    Time off is accrued and so it is hard to manage family/personal life when you don't have much time off. Bonuses and other benefits have dwindled, raises are slow and small.


  2. Going places...?

    I worked at International Game Technology full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Most people are deeply invested in what they are building and sending out the door. Many staff level folks are true evangelists for their products, advocating for them even when execs seem to devalue them. Some of the brightest and most creative people work at IGT, and despite the constant barrage of changes to the industry as a whole, most employees are still positive, friendly, focused and easy to work with. It will be interesting to see if this "merger" is as good for IGT as it is for GTech in the long run. I have no doubt it's good for casino operators.

    Cons

    At the time of my employment, the total compensation was very competitive and fair. However, the current offerings will "expire" soon as part of IGT's acquisition by GTech. Hard to say what future benefits, HR policies, etc will look like. Also, the constant industry change has beat down some people or at least stressed them to the max - and these few bad apples (some in mid-management) deal with it by turning on others, as if everything's a competition. As I said, they are not the majority, but they can be vindictive, loud and nearly impossible to collaborate with - pretty destructive when trying to conduct business.


  3. Glad to be part of the IGT team!

    Pros

    I love working at IGT. The people make it worth it. We get to create relationships with people all over the world. I'm in a support role and get to see the talent and diversity we have between our major US offices In Reno, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Seattle and many more.

    Cons

    We've just undergone an acquisition add merging. There are pains because of it but that is to be expected with any company. It's great to take a look across the board at best practices between the two companies and hopefully we find the better and use it.

    I worked at International Game Technology full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are some very good managers and the company is extremely stable (for the most part.) As a company, as a whole, there is a get it done attitude. If you are this type of person, this atmosphere is great, if not the company may not be there for you. They are also good about letting smart people be smart, not all corporations are like that.

    Cons

    For a technology company it is very much "old corporate" with very little room for innovation. There are also issues of management not understanding the gaming industry, which leads to strife and distrust between managers and the managed.

    Advice to Management

    Innovate or die! Something has to be done at all levels to bring (especially) lottery products into the 21st century. Also, pay attention to where employees are churning and burning and decide if it is the employees or the environment. I think it would be an eye opener in certain departments/groups.
