    Business planning needs to improve to get out of constant focus on cost and replace with a focus on value.

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

    Pros

    good coworkers, office location, good cafeteria, on-site gym, ok work life balance, benefits standard, interesting industry, head of hr has good ideas for future

    Cons

    hr group cannot be transformative when led by legacy leaders that only know gtech and igt way of doing things. Why preach about diversity when senior leadership of company not diverse, nor is the leadership of hr. Lots of technology issues plague day to day. Structure of group always changing, reporting lines too. Hiring freeze every year. You have lot of managers and leaders in place who don’t know how to manage people. Pay structure/grading system is a mess. Morale going lower and lower.

    Advice to Management

    HR needs to be reviewed from top to bottom. Not doing good job at supporting the rest of the organization. Get old legacy leaders out of the way and move in new blood that can really make change!

    I have been working at IGT full-time

    Pros

    I Absolutely Love the people I work with

    Cons

    Some of the management is not up to PAR. Lack of communication along with sometimes lack of leadership is rampant. Trying to change my shift is almost impossible even though I have been there for going on 6 years in a few days.

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

    Pros

    Pay is pretty good in my department. Benefits are amazing. Tuition reimbursement, healthcare, vacation/sick time. Great coworkers. My manager is by far one of the best managers in the building. Communication within the department is good (although the same can’t be said for every other department).

    Cons

    The company could do much better if it would learn to let go of some of its current management. There are some there that actually hinder progress and kill the morale of their team. Upper management hasn’t taken any action so far despite the many complaints (very likely that the complaints are being blocked by lower management so upper management never even hears them).

    Company has initiated employee engagement surveys for the past 2 years but there has been extremely little action taken to improve morale.

    There are hardly any growth opportunities. As an employee, it is nearly impossible to move up into management. Manager positions are very scarce and when they do open, the company tends to hire external managers who have absolutely no idea what they are doing instead of promoting people that know the job inside and out.

    Advice to Management

    If you TRULY want to improve, actually take a moment to listen to what the employees are saying and ACTUALLY act on those. No one believes you when you say “we hear you” and “we will do something about it” when your actions say the exact opposite.
