I have been working at IGT full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The lottery business is resistant to market volatility so it is a relatively stable company to work for. Because the company is world-wide there are opportunities to work in many locations. Many of my co-workers have taken advantage of this in the years I have been with the company. In addition, as the company wins privatization contracts, positions open up regularly in other states.

Cons

In my department, at least, the opportunities for advancement or career progression are scarce.

    Pros

    Co workers are supportive, they are just trying to get by like you are.

    Cons

    Very negative work environment. Supervisor berates employees and is known to shake her finger at you like you would a naughty child. Employees are constantly told how they screwed up yet not provided with the tools needed to do their jobs properly. All work is very manual as the company will not dedicate the resources to fix known problems. Don't expect to be praised when you do a good job with the meager resources available to you. It will get brushed under the carpet or someone else will get credit. Absolutely no career growth as IGT rarely promotes from within. If you are considering working here negotiate a really good salary because you will not move much beyond that.

    Advice to Management

    Can you please get rid of the bad middle management that is in place. Training will not help these people.....it is way beyond that.

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

    Pros

    The actual work is not hard at all and great if you want an easy 8-5.
    Met some great people, unfortunately they all quit to go on to 'normal' companies interested in success.

    Cons

    The management is unethical and immoral. They treat employees differently and its not based on merit but possibly latent racism, or other irrelevant motivations. Hyper-political atmosphere, two-tier class of employees game-designers managers are golden, if you are not applying for that good luck! What is worse is the products are horrible, and take forever to get released. Do yourself a favor if you want a career skip this company, if you need the money good luck.

    Advice to Management

    Contact headhunter, you will need it.
