Does IGT offer massages?

Pros

I can't speak for the entire company and every manager, but *I* have a great direct manager that is flexible and treats employees like professionals. They respect their employee's work/life balance and are reasonable. Benefits are OK and basic - medical/dental/vision/vacation/sick leave/holidays/basic life insurance, but nothing to write home about. This is why I give the overall rating a "3". Used to be a "4" until around 2008, then lots of layoffs and then we were sold. I have a lot of years invested here, so harder to leave. Overall, I do like the group I work with.

Cons

Benefits used to be much better. Chipped away at over the years. Used to have employee stock purchase plan, cash sharing, bonuses, and big employee appreciation events. IGT used to be a great employer - an employer of choice. Benefits require a higher employee/employer cost share and not competitive - other companies offer better, no more employee stock purchase plan, no cash sharing, and bonus levels (the position you have to be to earn a bonus) has changed (not in a good way). Now it's all about employees giving back to the community, which is a wonderful thing, but the prior amazing employee appreciation and holiday events are gone and those they do have are not even lukewarm in comparison (BBQs in the parking lot - hamburger, potato salad, drink and ice cream). It's all about employees giving to others while our paychecks have shrunk (little to no increases + increased insurance costs) while management continues to get their big bonuses off the backs of worker bees. Even the service awards are laughable now. Used to be well rewarded for longevity and loyalty to company. Now, 10 or 15 years will get you some toilet paper and laundry soap, maybe a hand mixer. NO JOKE.

Advice to Management

Stop with elistist policies that apply to everyone else, but you are the exceptions. We know what you make. We know how you travel. We know your privilege. Bring back the "above and beyond" benefits that used to make IGT the #1 place people wanted to work, that attracted the brightest and the best.

Does IGT offer parental leave?

Pros

The benefits package IGT offers is very competitive and includes paternity leave and great insurance. There is an onsite cafeteria and gym, and also a good holiday and time off schedule. Great staff that is not in management.

Cons

Although they offer a ton of benefits, it is frowned upon to utilize them. When you have PTO and Holidays, you are expected to not use them. They remain severely understaffed and are in a constant state of transition. Lay offs are a thing here, so you just need to be prepared for that at all times.

Advice to Management

Managers are amazing. The senior staff however, needs training on emotional intelligence and how to work with a diverse team. Senior management is disengaged and plays favorites with who they promote. It generally has nothing to do with ability and more to do with who they like. This company has a high turnover due to great employees leaving for other opportunities and others being laid off. The company is in the habit of laying off experienced workers and hiring in interns and temps to do the job for much less money and no benefits.

Does IGT offer a wellness program?

Pros

Excellent Team and good benefits

Cons

Heard employee was terminated on the day they were returning to work after having gone through cancer treatment. Refused to allow them to work from home, but other team members were allowed full time WFH. Made up lies to justify termination.

Advice to Management

Watch your middle management that use buzzwords and others to do their work while they claim it as their own. They can't even use Excel or Word, but are in charge of an Infrastructure Team with complex systems.

Excellent Team and good benefits
