    Poor Management Direction Company has no long term plan Product road is non-existent Management Lies to Employees Company Values are not reflected by management.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together, you work in an industry that makes such high margins it could be run by high school drop outs. Make a plan and work the plan stop flying by the seat of your paints.

    Pros

    Great people work at Aristocrat, but they are not in Management.

    Cons

    Poor Management, and very bad communication.

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone has been working at the company for a long time doesn't mean they are good managers. Pick managers who care about their employees!

    I worked at Aristocrat Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Interesting and challenging work. Snacks.

    Cons

    Little to no guidance up front, rarely any feedback positive or negative. Little to no direction even as to tasks that need to be completed. Poor management all the way around. As mentioned by others, no reason needed to fire you. Management made up issues against employees to justify termination, which was actually based on anything besides your performance.

    Advice to Management

    Start training on day one, get your people up to speed and spend the time with them to help them do what it is you want them to do. Regular feedback so that employees know where to work on improving.

    I worked at Aristocrat Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Great PTO and Benefits. Pay is fair for most jobs/levels.

    Cons

    Poor management, no appreciation, beyond horrible communication and morale is in the tank.

    Advice to Management

    Work on replacing upper level management with competent and caring leaders. The management in place is only there to collect their paychecks and they never even say thank you. Questionable practices and interpersonal relationships in many instances as well.

You may get thread by your manager for spoiling your career. Please join the company if no other option left in the world. Very very bad organisation .There is no work life balance. No growth opportunities if you think technically. Show More

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management should listen to the employees as well. Stop believing your managers with blindfold on their eyes. Should check the records before justice.

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

    Pros

    Managers and even senior architect converted senior manager. They have no knowledge they are good for nothing taking big segment of salary. You can fool them very easy if you are claver. If you are honest they will never let you grow. If you are simple and hard working it's your fault you are not claver. Annual party and trip

    Cons

    Management have lost reasoning ability and management skills. They never take stand on your behalf. They pretend that they listening to you but they will find small small things so that they can counter you when you ask for hike. They give salary hike from 2.27-5.5 percentage. Because they have acquired VGT so but managers have got good hike. It's you employees who have to contribute for VGT acquisition. Infact inflation...

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

    Pros

    1: Awesome Work life balance 2: No work from home 3: Weekends are not working unless required. 4: Pay you well (in the beginning when you join) 5: Interesting domain

    Cons

    1: Extremely poor management and processes 2: No cab service 3: Senior management positions are very volatile. It affects Promotions as youhave to prove to a new guy over n over again. 4: Needs to have more uified processes across the various locations worldwide

    Advice to Management

    Atleast make the promotions on the basis of some solid factors. Appraisals might not be visible on the floor but the promotion and designation are and if that is unfairly done, it leads to negative vibes on the floor. Have more unified processes
