Pros

Direct Supervisors and Management were good to me but they could not stop what the company was changing so I had to go.

Cons

Company said they never did lay-offs but that was a big lie. They went through a crazy long string of lay-offs. No more holiday party, no more company picnics, cash share (bonus) checks all but gone. and some went several years without a raise. They thought they were doing us a favor.

Advice to Management

Stop treating your employees like a resource and treat them like people with real lives and real family that are hit hard by the changes you are making. Also, stop taking the company jet for your personal vacations.

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

    Pros

    Competitive salary and benefits. Relocation assistance available. Strong Human Resources that really cares and tries to do their job .. but they don't run the company.

    Cons

    A manufacturing company trying to become and internet content provider. if you work on the legacy BI apps you will be unraveling other peoples' 10 year old spaghetti code. You may have interesting tasks if you are on the new dev side. Many horror stories about middle management. The stories I know are true but I don't know all the stories.

    Advice to Management

    Engineering needs clear strong technical direction.

    I worked at IGT full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    paychecks don't bounce; free coffee; no accountability.

    Cons

    "Lifer" type of mentality/employee (very common in Reno) is more of a negative than a positive at IGT. It is basically an innovation killer for this wanna be high tech company. it is hard for fresh blood to inject new ideas; the company is rooted in a dated way of doing things as a result. getting anything done at IGT is a challenge because the culture and political navigation stream is so polluted. For great people it is a stepping stone. For bad people they can hide there for life.

    Advice to Management

    Shift the big office from Reno to a new one in Silicon Valley.
