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

    Pros

    A 5 hour workday. There is usually someone else that does the actual work. Directors are seldom around so freedom for long lunches reducing the workday to 3 hours.

    Cons

    The bonus amount gets considerably smaller each year. Stock grants are gone for managers. Most managers can't do their jobs while a large minority do not even know their product line. It is very hard to be motivated for even the simplest tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Keep track of your direct reports, no one else will. Focus on the product, not the process. Bring benefits back before all the talent is gone.

    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.

    I worked at IGT full-time (More than a year)

    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.
