    Pros

    vacation, management does not pry in personal business, coworkers, and district managers are good people that care.

    Cons

    Upper management stinks,(the ones calling the shots) Not the district managers. They(upper management) make bad decisions that affect the reps. And then the reps have to try and make up for it. No raises and too much workload. They expect more and more out of you, but no wage increases. Territories are way too big and the driving is grueling. You basically chase your tail minute to minute trying to keep up. No attractive advancement options. Upper management running company into ground from bad decisions.

    Fit large corporation stereotype

    Pros

    1. It was a good stable job. 2. They did encourage mobility within the company. 3. There were plenty of employees to develop professional relationships.

    Cons

    1. Decisions were all money based. 2. The HR department knew about employee engagement and inclusion. However, because management only cared about money anything HR did was always a side thing that didn't or couldn't affect your work. 3. Upper management is above everyone else. It is a club and if your not it your expected to beg and grovel.

    Layoff, Dog eat Dog and Studio Alliance Culture

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Decent pay, benefits, work life balance, latest software, friendly coworkers, nice campus

    Cons

    Like a dark comedy of Dilbert. After a few years of working here, you're likely to start noticing the dog eat dog culture among the game studios, people always arguing how their way is the better way instead of coming to a consensus. Upper management can't seem to make up their minds and would rather spend millions moving entire departments in order to accommodate "their" personal feng shui, when in all practicality, everything is just fine where it's already at. Layoffs seem to occur at least once a year (usually in June or December). Lastly, if your not in the studio "alliance", then you're not "in".

    Antiquated Mess

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Work/life balance. Nice, supportive team members (management excluded)

    Cons

    Will tout itself as a "stable" company and then lay off new, valuable hires– layoff rounds are typically every quarter. Pay is relatively low, raises (if you get any) are paltry. Company is FAR behind tech industry standards- we're talking employees openly admitting that they refuse to read or respond to emails, so good luck getting anything done in a timely fashion. Lots of talk of innovation, communication, and teamwork with absolutely nothing to back it up. Company's current strategy seems to be "doing the same old thing" and hiring back company veterans from 20+ years ago in an attempt to "bring back the old IGT magic" so just about all business practices and strategies are from the 80s/90s. Any practices that are considered standard in the tech or commercial product world are met with a primitive fear response and are quickly dismissed as unrealistic. Upper management ranges from inept to insane (or both.)

    Used to be great... now a life suck and stress-machine...

    Pros

    The people I work with are awesome! Everyone is easy to work with, is helpful, is optimistic, and works hard. The office location is great!

    Cons

    While the office I work in is great, upper management has no clue what they are doing. The only thing they know how to do is arbitrarily cut valuable employees to "cut costs" and fudge a few extra numbers so they don't look as horrible to investors. Meanwhile the employees which are left have to pick up the slack of people that have been let go or have left for better opportunities with the expectation that all the deadlines are still to be met. But who cares about the employees or if the company will survive when you still get paid millions and have a golden parachute that would probably be enough for 10-20 people to retire on. I feel like if I worked somewhere and did as horrible of a job as our upper management does here, I would get fired, and probably sued, or maybe worse... Not here though. Here our upper management still gets to enjoy their huge paychecks and bonuses while flying first class while the company slowly implodes due to their decisions. If you do some research on the board of directors and previous companies our CEO has been at it will give you a good idea of what is going, what happened, and what the future holds for this company. Very sad to see such a great company be destroyed.

    Good 1st Job Place

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Everyone is nice: management, co-workers, and everyone else. Tasks and expectations are clearly assigned. Lots of resources to use and develop yourself. Very generous vacation, holiday, and sick time.

    Cons

    Gambling industry may or may not be as successful as they are or in the past. Lots of bureaucracy as to be expected from an international company. You feel more like a cog in a machine rather than a specialized contributor when upper management focuses on yearly goals and pays less attention to lower employees. Current manager wants to oversee everyone's contribution so the attention is stretched thin.

    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.
