    Pros

    Good people to work with, especially below the director level. Competitive benefits package. Good work/life balance

    Cons

    Company in a state of flux with recent merger/acquisition. Weak at director/vp level. Some hope with the merger displacing poor directors/vps. New company making some questionable retention decisions - mostly out of lack of knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working to understand what you have in your new employees and revisit your hiring/firing decisions. There are positives and I think this company could come out of the current turmoil well, but of course it could turn out a long-term disaster.

    Pros

    The company is like a family. The people who work here are great. I have no complaints with anyone among all of us in a technical company can always get grumpy. At the end of the day, we all help each other. They are flexible when in need.

    Cons

    The downside is the company does not pay competitive salary.

    Pros

    Good company to work for, they have great benefits with 401K . World wide leaders in the gaming and lottery industries. People are great to get along with.

    Cons

    Really don't have much cons for the company, they have always treated me well. I guess the only con I would have is that they are still making strategic re-alignments due to the current merger.

    Pros

    Great people who care about what they are doing. Our team has a lot of fun and we support each other. Work is challenging especially with the integration of IGT and GTECH. Lots of projects.

    Cons

    Definitely a lot of change and you need to be flexible. Still working through the integration process.

    Pros

    The people are great and the industry is very interesting. The organization changes quite often, so there is always room for growth, especially if you are willing to relocate or travel since it's a global company.

    Cons

    There is sometimes a lack of communication from the top, or it gets lost funneling down. Salary is competitive, but other benefits and total compensation could be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Be as transparent as possible and treat your employees well. They are the reason that you attract new talent. Try to be more competitive with benefits and total compensation.

    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

    There are a lot of really nice people who work here, and in the beginning, you can see that. They have fantastic benefits, pay well, have a cafeteria during the day, child care next door, etc.

    Cons

    Never be late, or too early. It will be held against you and you'll never forget it. Management is incredibly tight and get along with their own, but if you're not in their personal worship group, prepare for a bumpy ride in which you will never be able to reach the standards they set and keep raising without telling you. Make sure you get and memorize every one of their policies before you start, and adhere to them strictly, or your tenure will be short lived. There are plenty of people willing to stab you in the back so they can step on you to climb higher on the ladder of success. Be prepared for promises made in the beginning that will not be kept.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to be managers- learn how to bring out the best in your employees instead of stepping on them or talking to them in condescending tones and punishing them severely for "rules" they break that they really didn't actually break. Understand life happens, and remember you have human beings reporting to you, not mind reading robots who are members of your fan club.
