    I worked at Aristocrat Technologies full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    * Decent benefits * You may find yourself working with another decent human being who's not a back stabber * I can't think of anything else. Meh.

    Cons

    * SO many of the "reviews" posted here that lean towards "positive" are BS: "Basically Synthesized"!!! At this point in time, long-standing mid-management is running scared, trying to escape the impending doom... so they're fabricating good reviews hoping to draw new recruits into the web. * Development positions are being posted daily, but they are potentially either red herrings, designed by HR to promote company...

    Advice to Management

    * Learn (no, I mean Really!) from your mistakes! * Take your sense of entitlement and go somewhere they might value that! * Realize that leadership is a skill, not a privilege. Really. * Understand and Value your employees' capabilities - take the time to get to KNOW them, understand what they are passionate about, what they know, what they want to learn, and what they fear. * NEVER assume that you know more, know...

    I worked at Aristocrat Technologies full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Generally good people in the ranks, decent pay. Good facilities. Good working environment. Community involvement programs. Good design and development technology.

    Cons

    Poor morale. Poor senior management. Don't plan on staying long. If you don't leave on your own, you'll generally be shown the door within a few years. The programs designed to change the culture are just window dressing. Lots of politics.

    Advice to Management

    Provide genuine leadership.

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

    Pros

    1. Too much parties. 2. 8 hours working. 3. Cab facility. 4. Work life balance.

    Cons

    1. Working on old technologies. 2. Redundant work. 3. Senior management dont give a damn even if leads are dumb. They are just happy if they are present in office for longer hours. 4. Never seen such dumb leads survive. Unable to understand if an engineer is spoon feeding the lead and that's how project is running still managers don't care to even ask those leads to improve....

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your engineers if they are saying anything about your so called loyal and old leads because they are doing nothing. And only increasing attrition rate by putting pressure and stress by simply doing nothing and leaving the work on engineers. HR please listen to feedbacks while exit interviews at least. Else attrition will never stop.

    I have been working at Aristocrat Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Starting pay tends to be better than the market average (the gaming industry can afford it), but pay increases are at the minimum. New CEO, Trevor Croker, is very personable and takes the time to talk to individuals from different levels across the organisation.

    Cons

    Very top heavy and hierarchical. Does not support employees wanting to develop themselves (the learning and development budget is saved and spent elsewhere). Employee surveys are a waste of time. The same issues are raised time and time again (poor senior management, poor systems, poor communication, no development opportunities) but not a single thing changes. Blame culture....

    Advice to Management

    Employ and develop real leaders - "we" not "I" people. Invest in your workforce. Treat employees fairly.

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

    Pros

    I led a great team of dedicated and talented professionals. Turning them from a demoralised, under-appreciated bunch into a proud and innovative group who started getting the recognition they deserved is one of the proudest achievements in my career. This, and the realisation that management culture needs to be at the top of my list of things to research before joining any company were the valuable lessons I learned.

    Cons

    The culture was one of cliques and intrigue which made for a very nasty atmosphere. The senior management seemed so paranoid and obsessed with 'bad behaviours' they would believe any nasty rumour anyone decided to spread around. Individuals were targeted and personal attacks were not required to be substantiated in order to be believed. I have worked in a number of companies...

    Advice to Management

    Developing a good culture is about understanding your employees - not just telling them how to behave.

    Good pay, and occasional chance to travel, with OK benefits if you know the right people.

    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
