    Pros

    Free lunch, that's about it. Many unhappy people are in the company. It was a sad day when Jon sold the company.

    Cons

    Too much drama. The company says they are straight forward and no drama, this is not the case. There are irresponsible people in management who should never have been put in the position.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people working for you. The upper management badly needs revamping.

    Middle Management sub-par. Too much drama!

    Hire "real" managers with a proven track record that are able to keep employees accountable.

    Pros

    Things have changed for the better since the acquisition by Aristocrat. There is more accountability and direction. Leadership changes have also helped to improve things. There are many good people at VGT and the culture is improving daily.

    Cons

    Aristocrat culture seems to be more "corporate" and some upper management decisions are seemingly made to make things look better without actually ensuring things will really improve.

    Advice to Management

    Let VGT continue to be run as a separate company. Instead of implementing changes just because it's the way Aristocrat does things, take time to learn about how VGT does things because it could be the better way.

    Pros

    There are several good reasons ti work there, like free lunch, competitive pay and weekends off.

    Cons

    The management needs to take a look at some of the directors and needs to learn how to respect employees. They need to take the advice of several people that aren't in the position to make changes.

    Pros

    A very bad place to work at. Free lunch and some good talented employee's.

    Cons

    Political promotions are given and for no other reason that being a friend of higher up. Work your butt over a project? It doesn't matter the ones that get the high fives and raises are those that do nothing. Aristocrat is making things worse not better. Did you complaint to HR to bad now your label. The ones you complaint about they will be the ones promoted. Mass quitting going on company cannot hold on to employees their salaries base is way lower then the national average. Be warned their technology is obsolete Luke for twenty years, and do be fooled by Aristocrats technology. My advised, if your desperate for a job then come here, but if you have options keep open. The insurance could be better that insurance doesn't fight for the employees like the previous insurance.

    Advice to Management

    You're loosing good people keep promoting butt
    kissers then your turn over will much larger. Pay attention to your employees money isn't everything some of them just need recognition or a high five good work and a safe place to work. Clique's are bad for business and who wants to listen to their whispering nobody.

    Pros

    The food, and not much else. Take away the free lunches and this place goes in the wind. All the H1B jobs they have.

    Cons

    Manager always fighting and never use SCRUM. Stand ups are updates with time line and what you did or doing. Sprite better make the burn down charts look good. This place is light years from being Agile. The turn over is bad.

    Advice to Management

    Find some one who will listen. Aristocrat better start find new leadership before it's to late.
