    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.

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

    Pros

    Provided great learning, development and growth opportunities and strong compensation and benefits. The company is large enough to provide experience in multiple roles.

    Cons

    Company lost its way for a few years that led to austerity and selling of the company to GTECH. New company now and a different culture that is more operationally focused than concerned with innovation or being an industry pioneer.

    Advice to Management

    None really as I am no longer there.

    Pros

    Time is flexible, depends on which team you are in. Competitive salary and good benefits like health, vision, dental and 401k.

    Cons

    Tight on budget again depends on which team you are in.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't let the good developers go, talk to the team to know how good or how much someone contributes to the team.

    I worked at IGT full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules and time off

    Cons

    Had great hopes for new with IGT with GTech as the new owners, but the new IGT is pretty much the same as the old IGT.

    Advice to Management

    Build EGMs that smaller casinos and slot routes can afford to buy. Instead of constantly telling customers what product IGT will build and sell, try building EGMs that customers want and can afford. Try growing IGT's gaming market, instead of always playing 2nd fiddle to Ballys.
