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

Pros

Plenty of jobs in middle-management due to high turnover, usually lots of down-time to study if you are a student and have a permissive supervisor.

Cons

Tiniest mistakes become write-ups and are never forgotten by management. Management is quick to reprove but never praises. Upper management treats those below them as highly disposable and quickly replaced, despite the need for long-term training and familiarization with the systems. Payment is low compared to similar positions, and everyone is expected to want to move into management although the expected overtime and on-call time make management essentially a pay-cut, particularly if you are nightshift.

Advice to Management

Remember that the workforce is human and that training and skills take time to acquire. Acknowledge when good work is done

    I have been working at IGT full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    IGT provides interesting and challenging work, good work life balance, at the leading slot manufacturer. Compared to the video game industry the compensation is fair to good. There are opportunity for travel as the company has offices all over the world. The company is diverse in looking at online gambling, slots, mobile, and even social gaming

    Cons

    The gambling industry as a whole moves at a very slow pace for innovation, IGT is no exception. IGT is well off its highpoint 8 years ago so morale for people who have been there during those times is low

    I worked at IGT full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people to work with, talented individuals, salary not bad.

    Cons

    Good old white boy mentality through out the company. Minorities have to prove themselves and majority of the time will not be sufficient. We had a very talented software tester he left and got tired of the way he was treat it.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the good 'ol boy networks you have in Reno and Las Vegas and the talent will flourish with awesome ideas and games.
