    I have been working at Aristocrat Technologies full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Aristocrat is a global company with teams all over the world making all types of games and supporting technologies. The work force is diverse with a broad range of professional experience and cultural backgrounds. Aristocrat has purchased four large companies in the last five years and integrated the teams and products enabling new technology and product opportunities to employees.

    Cons

    The rapid growth of the business and the addition of multiple companies has created a large number of overlapping teams and technologies. The overlap creates confusion and uncertainty across the organization due to a lack of clear communications across similar job functions (regardless of the original company). The infrastructure to support a global company is lacking and many basic needs are difficult to get met in a...

    Advice to Management

    Invest in infrastructure and cross product teams to reduce friction and allow product teams to focus on delivery.

    I have been working at Aristocrat Technologies full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    We work hard and play hard. The culture is greatly improved over the past few years. The people have always been great! They are what keeps me coming back. We get lots of technology to play with and change is ever present. It's exciting to be part of growing and advanced company! Despite the white male dominance listed in cons, I have received several promotions and am part of the charge to change the culture even more!

    Cons

    Gaming comes with white male dominance and that is reflected at Aristocrat. They still have a few old fashioned ideas about compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being open to new ideas. Think Bigger is great! Keep up the hard work to take us to the next level!

    Pros

    Fastest growing gaming supplier in the US. Global company with diverse employee base. Clear vision for the future with specific goals clearly articulated. Behaviors and values at the forefront. Expectations are high but achievable. Work/Life balance is attainable. (this is dept dependent). Excellent pay and benefits. Remote employees are appreciated and respected. U.S. headquarters is moving to new campus early...

    Cons

    Outdated ERP system. Project to replace it taking longer than expected. I.T. department needs significant overhaul to support the business. Prevalent silo mentality is difficult to bring down. Cultural challenges between two campuses. Communicating globally given time zones is challenging, however this is not unique to Aristocrat but global companies in general. Career path can be tough for remote employees....

    Advice to Management

    Continually strive for continuous improvement and reaching that next level. Invest in I.T. to maintain existing infrastructure while moving towards the future.

    I have been working at Aristocrat Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Team was warm friendly, answered many of my questions during interview process, the relocation process has been flawless (moved from 3k miles away), and great welcoming experience as a new hire. Very flexible environment for work life balance, all the folks on the team want to WIN! Truly a global company that needs global thinkers and leaders.

    Cons

    Lots of personnel changes so you must be flexible to change. From what I can see, it is all for the better as Aristocrat continues to grow as a global leader/.

      Pros

      Good people and great opportunities. Used to be an employee and now a customer, its great to see them doing well.

      Sometimes slow to react to market changes and innovation but that looks to be on the up with the recent game content and system upgrades.

      No opinion of CEO

      I have been working at Aristocrat Technologies full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Its a large company and the pace is similar to that of other large companies. Some good work done at good pace. Other work done is too fast and sloppy because of an external need.

      Cons

      Recruiting process is terrible. Months and months delays, phone tag, only to have positions changed. Recruiting was just a window into the operation. Opportunities that should have been there were filled with friends of the 'leaders'.

      Advice to Management

      Truly execute to values.
