    "Strangle the chicken to increase egg production"

    I have been working at IGT full-time

    Pros

    Many good hard working staff both legacy IGT & Gtech, middle management open and honest and resonable remuneration

    Cons

    Current strategy is to increase egg production by throttling the chicken. Sales is a highly regarded focus but back of house is seen as a drain on profit. Current strategies include - No new hires or replacements especially in IT, leading to significant drop in support value to the business needs - No travel apparently everything can be done on the phone unless you are a VP, again leading to lack of business appreciation and therefore lowering of support standards - HR corporate & HR local have no cohesion, providing un realistic salary expectations to local staff that will not be honoured at corporate level - Collaboration tools simply don't work on the Legacy IGT side, so much for no need to travel, combined with two distinct (domains) networks After 20 years staring to see the same mistakes by the new owner, we do miss Tom Baker

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at IGT full-time

    Pros

    Nice people to work with including good staff retention rates. Good resources and flexibility allows for a good work life balance.

    Cons

    Lots of change currently going on due to recent merger which can create uncertainty around jobs and future structure of the business. However this is likely to settle as time goes on.

    I have been working at IGT full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good company to work for, friendly environment, could be very hectic at times, with everything there is always 'Give & Take' culture.

    Cons

    Sometimes work could be hectic and long hours. We may need additional resources and product testings could be improved. Management consultation and approach could be improved.

    I worked at IGT full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Allowed for personal growth. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    No room to advance in both position and salary. Constant update emails about how the company is doing so well yet they have constant lay-offs with not much sense of employee loyalty. Work culture is fairly boring in my branch (might not be the same in Reno HQ)
