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

    Pros

    This poor company was pillaged by the ex CEO, and is now shedding the best and brightest from every department.

    Cons

    From 2013 to today, this company has taken only the most short-sighted steps to keep the company from completely sinking. Need to show a profit? Don't stop flying the company jet to ski vacations, lay off 15% of the work force and call those savings "profit". The result is a company so full of holes and short of talent that it's a shadow the company it once was.

    Advice to Management

    Get your resume brushed off.

    I have been working at IGT full-time

    Pros

    Work-life balance, good local people, flex hours

    Cons

    Company is very creative moving numbers around to increase shareholder value at the expense of talent leaving or being pressured out through attrition. R&D has a bad connotation now. There won't be any talent left to innovate to remain competitive at this rate.

    Advice to Management

    The legacy divide is still far to obvious, and is heavily biased. Communication is non-existent in the CTO org. Having a patent portfolio does not equate to innovation if the talent is out the door. Sayonara.

    I worked at IGT full-time

    Pros

    Good steady job. Lots of pressure, but fun. Worth the shot.

    Cons

    Lack of good management at local and regional level. Several layoffs in recent months, specially with long time employees.

    Advice to Management

    Find the right people to manage district based on performance not who you know.

    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.
