    I have been working at Aristocrat Technologies full-time (More than 8 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 2019.
    We make slot machines and that's cool stuff.

    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    Outdated ERP system.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. High achievers who are local can be fast tracked.
    At times folks within the organization need to be reminded we're in the business of entertainment, not life/death.

    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.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great benefits, great people, lots of support, great culture in office(a lot of events, free lunches, sporting competitions), decent work/life balance, lots of potential extra paid days off depending on if you end up working or traveling for the company over the weekend, great base amount pto, very few layoffs/firings in at least the tech services department, very friendly stag with very little drama/politics(at least in tech services department)

    Cons

    Long hours whenever you're assigned a project(potential of 80 hours), high turnover(quitting), lackluster employee reviews(management does not bother giving criticism unless direly needed or personally asked), poor internal documentation for products, culture of few people do a majority of the work (causing employees to have health problems), very little potential for upward movement

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to more evenly divide workloads, standardize pay structures so that coworkers have the same motivation to do their jobs and have more one on ones with employee's so they can express concerns

    Pros

    Products are top of the line and in high demand. Company Executives have genuine care and concern for helping to make Aristocrat an even greater place to work. Surveys, culture workshops, Exec skip-level meetings and coffee with general workforce aim to help solve concerns. Recent upgrades in talent at some higher levels expect more than the norm and drive everyone to continue to perform at high levels and think big picture to take us into the next 5-10 years.

    Cons

    Duplication of efforts and time to get some things through all approval channels. Turnover in some areas due to many major initiatives at once.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to strive for better systems, communication, processes and continue to invest in people at lower levels to do the work to keep the customers happy with our attention and performance.
