    The work life balance is probably without compare

    The lack of any succession planning makes career progression either non-existent or difficult

    I have been working at IGT full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Cafeteria and gym onsite. Easy to excel due to the myriad of lifetime IGT'ers that know nothing but IGT.

    Work life balance is pretty great - it's rare to see anyone work over 40 hours in a week.

    Cons

    It's a who you know game. If you have been there a while and know VP's wives, etc you move up regardless of talent, education or performance. Things went downhill after some management turnover and people were put into positions they weren't qualified for and are in way over their heads. But hey - they know IGT so they must know what they're doing.

    Advice to Management

    Try rewarding for performance not just personal relationships. Don't be afraid to fire a poor performer instead of handing out the "golden parachute"

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

    Pros

    Immediate managers are awesome, laid back atmosphere, casual environment for developers. Minimal micromanagement. Clear and concise goals and expectations

    Cons

    sometimes too many cooks in the kitchen, however, we are making great products. Often folks not pulling their weight can slip by like a kid that can't read, in school. I wish we had different insurance but that seems to be everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    I am super happy with management. My immediate manager is sensitive to my needs at work and the manager above him is one of the nicest people to work for. They acknowledge achievements and reward for them appropriately.

    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.

    I have been working at IGT full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.
