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

Pros

Work with smart people.
Regular 40 hour work weeks unlike some other engineering jobs.
Decent benefits.
Free gym.

Cons

Low Pay compared to similar positions in other companies.
No room for promotion.
No budget for raises.
Senior management is disconnected from day to day operations.

Advice to Management

The current plan isn't working. Some serious research needs to be done on way our products are not having the same success as in the past and how to stop giving up our market share to the competition. The board of directors need to stop thinking short term and focus on improving the company long term. Also, find a CEO that knows gaming. Patti is not that CEO, it is time for her to go.

    I have been working at IGT full-time

    Pros

    The people that work there are very knowledgeable and good at their jobs.

    Cons

    The morale there was awful. You had to jump through a lot of hoops to get promoted; a lot of employees were at low levels for a very long time (level 1 or 2). There seemed to be a lot of layoffs, but a new vice president was hired every other month or so. Upper management seemed to have no idea what they were doing.

    Advice to Management

    Less layoffs, more money sharing with the worker bees. Maybe take a class on how to actually improve morale rather than telling employees that they're lucky to even have a job.
