    Let your people run the business and stop analyzing to the "nth" degree.

    Pros

    This poor company was pillaged by the ex CEO, and is now shedding the best and brightest from every department.

    Cons

    From 2013 to today, this company has taken only the most short-sighted steps to keep the company from completely sinking. Need to show a profit? Don't stop flying the company jet to ski vacations, lay off 15% of the work force and call those savings "profit". The result is a company so full of holes and short of talent that it's a shadow the company it once was.

    Advice to Management

    Get your resume brushed off.

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

    Pros

    Everyone is nice: management, co-workers, and everyone else. Tasks and expectations are clearly assigned. Lots of resources to use and develop yourself. Very generous vacation, holiday, and sick time.

    Cons

    Gambling industry may or may not be as successful as they are or in the past. Lots of bureaucracy as to be expected from an international company. You feel more like a cog in a machine rather than a specialized contributor when upper management focuses on yearly goals and pays less attention to lower employees. Current manager wants to oversee everyone's contribution so the attention is stretched thin.

    Advice to Management

    Immediate management: either step back and focus on your own tasks and let us manage ourselves more, or get another person to help you with your responsibilities.

    Overall Management: Let us know about other department's events. We feel isolated even though we work in close proximity to other studios. Plus I hear a lot of praise for marketing and other more public facing departments for hitting sales and other goals, but not so much for internal departments such as product development and testing. We want to feel appreciated too.

    I have been working at IGT full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They have a reasonable benefits package.
    Salaries were somewhat competitive with the market.
    Some limited chances to work remotely.
    Engineering staff is generally good.
    A place to hide and collect a paycheck for a while.

    Cons

    Nepotism and cronyism in the upper management. Very 1950's attitudes.
    Leadership lacks direction, ability to lead or innovate.
    Company culture is very poor or perhaps "poisonous", so employees and middle management are ignored, not allowed to contribute to helping the company succeed (just given marching orders).
    Leaders appear to make business decisions based on emotional and personal (non business related) reasons.
    Upper management continues to get bonuses even as profits decline fast.

    Pros

    Benefits, 401k, Paid Time, Sick Time, Holidays, Float Days
    Work Environment is Open, Clean, Calm
    Location is Great
    On Site Cafe and Gym

    Cons

    The budget is usually low for group activities.

    Recent years have brought worse health insurance options, less time off, lower 401k match %, and other benefits once had being cut away. The morale has suffered.

    Advice to Management

    Put more efforts toward having happy employees and less trying to keep the quarterly books looking sharp for the investors. Reinstate the Holiday Season Bonuses/Perks.
