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

    Pros

    There are no pros. Upper management is horrible and does not have clue how to treat employees unless you happen to be one of the upper managements favorites.

    Cons

    Everything is a con with IGT. No where to grow with the company no matter how loyal you are to the company. Your considered a number and not an asset and will be cut at any minute upper management feels there needs to be a change which seems to happen ever few months. No guidance or help from anyone at IGT. I highly recommend not appling for position at IGT.

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

    Pros

    Management is striving towards a leadership system which allows employees to act as their own boss and take responsibility for their own work, which promotes enthusiasm and a desire to learn.

    Great benefits.

    Promotes from within when possible.

    Cons

    Some of the management is not taking to the recommended management techniques.

    Employees take a large amount of responsibility over a vast majority of what happens, even if it’s out of their hands or they correct what happened quickly. If it happened, we’re usually held responsible. They either last years in Operator positions, or they’re let go quickly.

    Hours are difficult. Operators have 12 hour shifts, 4 days a week, on a rotating schedule. Managers keep a 9am-5pm, Mon - Fri schedule unless they’re coming in to talk to an employee, and they rarely visit during nights.

    DayShift (8am - 8pm) is promoted a lot more quickly than NightShift (8pm - 8am).

    Management does not communicate well.

    Advice to Management

    If you’re going to request that someone does something, I think it would make sense to do it yourselves, too.
