    Pros

    Steady paycheck
    Good health insurance
    Employee Gym
    Cafeteria

    Cons

    The manager/supervisors in my department are clueless on how to motivate and engage their employees. Instead of admitting it and trying to change the situation they blame the employees. The supervisors lack the basic knowledge needed to support their staff and often make huge mistakes, making the staff jump through hoops to fix their poor decisions. They are however very good at cruising the hallways and documenting who isn't at their desks. It is my understanding that this type of "leadership" is rampant throughout the company, which explains the large turnover. I am sure the CEO has encouraged this type of "leadership". They don't care if people are unhappy and even told our entire department this in a "motivational" meeting. Stay away from this company unless you enjoy being micromanged, documented and your career either destroyed or die a slow death.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and smell the coffee! Instead of blaming the employees for the poor work environment you need to look within yourself. Do something positive to change the situation. I've heard IGT used to be a great company to work for. Help it to move back in that direction.
