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

    Pros

    I recently started working here, and so far everything from interview process to on-boarding and orientation has been phenomenal. It is as well-oiled a machine as you can expect given the complexities of a company its size. The compensation is extremely competitive and the benefits start day 1 (health/401K/FSA/etc.). It is not a micromanaged environment, and generally you are able to move at your own pace (especially...

    Cons

    Some growing pains that are easily solvable. The biggest con is the time zone difference between Las Vegas and Australia, but there are strategies around it. Some other issues are that the company is growing, and with that come growing pains (outgrowing offices, new building migration, etc.).

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing (I know this is usually an "insider" posting, but I have not been told by anyone to post this).

      I worked at Aristocrat Technologies full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      1. Offers a little more than market average salaries 2. Fixed salary hikes (around 6-15%), and fixed time promotions. Sometimes, salary hike happens twice, in case you got promotion mid-year. 3. Facilities (Cab, Food, and other extra-curricular) 4. It's a product-based company, so there is not so much of work pressure always, but it might also depend on the team. Again, depending on the team and project, you might...

      Cons

      1. Average skilled people in the company. Not very bright minds. 2. As I said, fixed salary hikes, and fixed time promotions. So, working hard and intelligently doesn't make much of a difference. 3. Salary is proportional to your designation irrespective of your number of years of experience, and work capacity. So, if your earlier salary is low, you will be offered standard hike, and a lower designation than you will...

      Pros

      Mid sydney location with parking for mid to senior staff. Generally employees are very nice. Decent salary and bonuses.

      Cons

      Senior managers don't know how to manage people - most are quite disliked and distrusted, you could even say they are bullies, so how can these people manage and invigorate others!?. Complacency is accepted and generally expected, many staff are inept, the technology is so old it takes 5 times longer and double the people to do do basic technical tasks, people come and go at all hours with little regard to the impact...

      Advice to Management

      Ask your staff what they really think of their managers and business leaders. You will be surprised but not in a good way. Upgrade your platform before it's too late.

        I worked at Aristocrat Technologies full-time for more than 4 years

        Pros

        Some good people to work with. Flexible hours. Probably the most clever MSSQL database architects and developers outside of Microsoft itself. Pay was good.

        Cons

        This is specific to Systems organization: - Too heavily reliant on closed source technology (ie. Microsoft/VMWare). - Completely refuses to use modern software architecture. No cloud-based technology. No open source technology. AWS, Azure, Docker, Kubernetes? Never heard of them. - No innovation and no hopes to build technical skills to further career. - Most engineers wouldn't know what a 12-factor app was if...

        Advice to Management

        No engineer worth their salt wants to work on monolithic WCF services, stored procs or WinForm apps. I predict most of your talent will be gone this year (2019). If you wanted a bunch of mediocre offshore C# devs, you are on the right track.
