I worked at IGT full-time (More than 3 years)

Campus
Tight knit departments
Can easily move into other departments

Cons

Pay raise guidelines not followed
After economy turned, hired inexperienced CEO

Advice to Management

IGT was once an employee-centered, vibrant place to work. Employees used to rave about working there, which was fantastic free marketing to the community. Current CEO does not have experience bringing a big business successfully through very troubling times. Bring in a CEO who knows how to navigate, and who also knows a team makes it through ...when there is a team. Bring back service recognition awards - inexpensive rewards yet truly powerful in creating and maintaining employee morale.

    I have been working at IGT full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A good place to waste and ruin your life. That will even hunt you rest of your life how bad the people are. There are people because of them at least 10 other left the company. Some of the people got money from vendors.

    Cons

    CEO bankruptcy expert. It is very close for that.

    Advice to Management

    Public money, best time to blow it off like AIG. Fire some people and go on a vacation.

    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
