    Pros

    Great people, great benefits, good advancement

    Cons

    Revolving door of leadership and constant org changes -- hard to gain momentum on anything when the vision always changes.

    Advice to Management

    Just purchased - hope the new management can get up-to-speed quickly and really evaluate what works before changing.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    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

    IGT is a pretty good place to work, for the most part. Like any big company, in my experience, it depends a lot on who your immediate manager is. We are all waiting to see how our pending acquisition goes.

    Cons

    Uncertainty about the future, silos, budget constraints, nothing too extreme in this day and age. Our revenues have declined steadily over the past few years so that exacerbates all of the above.

    Advice to Management

    Share the wealth.

    Pros

    Schedules for deliverables were generous. This allowed for numerous iterations of our products until they meet our standard of quality.

    Cons

    This generous gift of time obviously went to our bottom line. This wasn't a big deal when we enjoyed a 60% market share but when competitors with better product lines and a leaner workforce entered the market that soon began to erode.

    Advice to Management

    I would first bring in more experienced people who really understood the gaming market and what attracts customers to the casinos. I would then clean house of the dead wood, something IGT had plenty of, and incentivize your prize employees.


  11. Good in general. Lots of opportunities to grow and learn. Management is efficient and responsibile.
