    I worked at IGT as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    They pay you on time.

    Cons

    No more holiday pay, PTO, sick leave, or relaxed atmosphere. When you are an intern, they expect you to work all the time and do the work of a full time employee with 1/3rd the pay.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating interns like people and more people will stay.

    I worked at IGT full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance.

    Benefits are still pretty good.

    Generally stable company.

    If you just want a paycheck and want to put in your time it is a good place.

    Cons

    Capping of promotions and salaries.

    Declining benefits.

    Slow moving, out dated software development processes.

    Resistance to change - Things are done because "that's how its always been done" with no supporting reason.

    Have little to no voice in product development.

    Advice to Management

    Put more energy into better development processes and tools. Encourage people to try new things and be more transparent.

    I worked at IGT full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Had a good benefits package.

    Cons

    All hype and no follow through. IGT lost lots of good people because of Top Heavy management, vague moral building (Remember: Think Blue?), and petty knee jerk reactions by management to employees for being curious who still works at IGT who know anything. Doing more with less is a worn out phrase.

    Advice to Management

    Admit your mistakes and stop ignoring the silent screams of your employees. How many surveys will it take for management to accept the results of what employees have been saying for years.

    I worked at IGT full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    You have very hard working, Dedicated employees who were proud to be shareholders. Most staff have a can-do attitude despite the passive aggressive beatdowns

    Cons

    Senior management is out of touch with he reality of what is taking place on a day to day basis. HR doesn't investigate complaints and turns a blind eye

    Advice to Management

    You have vipers in your senior management team that are disingenuous to middle mgmt. The sneaky/hostile passive aggressive behavior displayed by newly appointed VPs caused many long-time employees to seek employment elsewhere. 5 years ago IGT was known as BIG BLUE - you are in the middle of a mediocre pack

    I worked at IGT full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    IGT was a really good company to work for and I largely enjoyed it. My manager and co-workers were good people who were knowledgeable and enjoyed what they do.

    Cons

    Benefits really started to go downhill after GTECH bought us out 2 years ago. Goodbye cash sharing, goodbye employee stock purchase plan, no vacation carryover from year to year. Healthcare went through the roof. No raises. No promotions.

    I have been working at IGT full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    IGT has been a good company to work for. My immediate management team has always been excellent. Onsite cafeteria and Fitness center. Outside walking paths as well. It is a big company with alot of room for advancement. IGT also stresses self improvement and has many opportunities for training.

    Cons

    IGT continues to go through alot of changes since being bought by GTECH 2 + years ago. There have been staff reductions but typical for a big merger like that has happened.

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

    Pros

    IGT has an on-site gym, and Cafeteria that is open for breakfast and lunch. When you start, you receive 3 weeks of vacation, 1 week of sick, and 2 float days.

    Cons

    The accounting department does not take time to train new employees. The excuse is always that there is too much work to stop and train. Additionally, managers in the accounting department are secretive. There is really no transparency. In order to get a promotion or special recognition, you need to be friends with management. There is no HR on site, and managers ignore HR type issues.

    Advice to Management

    Value the people.
