    I have been working at Aristocrat Technologies full-time for more than 20 years

    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    Outdated ERP system.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

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

    Pros

    focused on people such as work life balance and personal development, somewhat flexible schedule, safe environment, good pto policy, business casual dress code,

    Cons

    systems and manual processes, informal training for new employees, generational differences with workers in the team.

    Advice to Management

    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 for more than 6 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...

    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.

    I have been working at Aristocrat Technologies full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Work life balance and great benefits including compensation. Nice maternity leave benefits, great vacation policy. That's about it! You're lured in by the recruiting team with these incentives, but when you start it's true what they say, " all that glitters is not gold"!

    Cons

    No trust amongst the HR team, you are constantly warned about what team members you cannot trust, because some of them have direct relationships with the Australian corporate office and will get you fired if they don't like you. Which harbors an environment that creates a lack of security. In my first week I was told, "let's face it none of us are going to retire from here... we're just getting by until we find the next...

    Advice to Management

    Need to go back to basics and really figure out what kind of HR team you want because just saying " Bigger badder HR" does not make it so.

    I really appreciated the company culture. The folks here are smart, as well as considerate. The company stresses success but prioritize the employee's well being. From a technology environment, the culture pushes you to innovate and expand your expertise. You are given the necessary tools to succeed, and management is aware that technology drives the products.
