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

    Pros

    Easy access off main freeway (215). Pleasant campus, close to shopping and eating.

    Cons

    CHURN & BURN! If you're a PM or gaming SME avoid like the plague! Like many in the Vegas gaming industry, IGT has no clue how to run projects (best practice, Agile/PMI). They burn out their PM's by loading them up and micromanaging their methodology (a multi-page spreadhseet checklist called a Phase-Gate review). They expect 75%-125% travel (125% includes weekend time.)

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like resources to be used up. Stop your focus on the bottom line ($$) and realize that your employees are human beings and that cultivating loyalty for the future might have merits.
