    I have been working at Aristocrat Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There really are great opportunities here, for the chosen, select few. If you’re not on the favorites list then forget about it. There are plenty of smart people here that have great ideas. But there passed by for lesser ideas offered by the favorites.

    Cons

    The job is not what I was sold in the interview. I shouldn’t have trusted that first date behavior I got in the beginning. My hard work did not pay off and my ideas were not welcome. This causes serious morale problems throughout. Those at the top don’t seem to care about changing it either.

    Advice to Management

    The changes in leadership recently #1 have not been deep enough #2 no change management followed so everyone’s walking around on eggshells waiting for the other shoe to drop.

    Quit picking favorites

    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    Outdated ERP system.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.

    have formal work instructions and processes in place for the team. once a month 1-1 meetings, every permanent employee should have access to work remotely on a laptop from home at least 1-2x a month instead of always being in a cubicle.

    I worked at Aristocrat Technologies (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company has great potential, some great people, some fantastic products, great licenses, some well-run departments/teams, it is a company that has been here for decades and will be for decades more.

    Cons

    Obviously everywhere above that, I said "some" it was for a reason. Just like every other company you've worked at, there are good parts and really bad parts about Aristocrat. It all matters what division you are in and what line of the org chart your boss, his boss, and his boss report to. I've had fantastic experiences and I've had experiences that were so negative that they bordered on abusive. There is virtually no process, no standards, quality is all over the map, communication stalled or non-existent, lots of finger pointing, people throwing people under buses, people refusing to follow through or follow direction, etc. Just like the last place you worked, it can be sunshine or toxic clouds. It can be Friday happy hours or Saturday crunches. Can be great job for work you barely worked on and screamed at for stuff you did exactly as directed. Time for lunch yet? Roll the dice if you need a job. Maybe you'll hit a Big Win.

    Advice to Management

    Quit picking favorites; with your teams and especially with your managers. Don't manage through negativity. Don't tell me I'm Agile than Waterfall me. It is the dawn of the new technical age. The Age of Dinosaurs is OVER. The future is about Integrations. Learn to collaborate globally within your organization, unify process and platforms on an International level or DIE! Just like everyone else is doing and not doing.
