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 (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Ability to move around departments and change career. Flexible work schedules (you end up worked way more hours but on your terms.)

    Cons

    Not a leading technology company who attempts to get ahead of the curb by exposing employees to industry standard software/hardware. Without doing your own home work, it is really hard to get a tech job after working here.

    Advice to Management

    Need to create some time-off policies. If you don't have a paid ticket out of town during a vacation, you will have to attend calls, respond to emails, and deal with work place politics defeating the purpose of the vacation.
