    Pros

    The people I had direct contact with were great. There were a lot of very smart and talented people there with many years of industry experience. The pay was pretty good.

    Cons

    The company is flagging negative reviews and having them removed. Read this while you can, I'm sure it will be gone within a week if they get their way. The problem, of course, is that the reviews they're trying to remove are the honest ones that tend to be persuasive.

    Now to the cons... First, a significant percentage of the "rock star" people left. Some were laid off, some just left in search of better opportunities. Upper management has become worse over time, with the majority of Vice Presidents being nothing more than generi-stooges. These are the people who say the same things and do the same basic tasks no matter what company they're employed with, all the while twisting things around to their maximum personal benefit. Upper management is filled with vultures who swarm in to rip apart the meager remains of what was once a fantastic company.

    There was a time when the company really did share its profits with the employees. Anyone who was there more than 7 or 8 years remembers cash sharing, the slot auctions, the winter parties, the Wild Waters days, and the common half-days before long weekends. The company pushed hard, and there was occasionally a lot of overtime, but they earned it. There was a mutual respect, and it's the first time in my career when I felt loyal to a company. I owed them my very best because that's what they offered to me in return.

    Those days are over. The company is a sad shadow of what it once was. Upper management is filled with clueless executives who have no idea how to run a gaming company. This is why the smaller competitors like Konami and Aristocrat are stealing so much market share; they're on their way up while IGT is in free-fall. Executive management expect more overtime from their employees than the company has ever expected in the past, with their reasoning being "if you don't like it, go find another job. You owe us overtime because we employ you." As you can imagine, morale is in the toilet. People spend long hours sitting in their chairs, but there's not a lot of work getting done anymore and that competitive spirit that invigorated everyone is dead. There's no spark left, there's no real innovation, and it's saddening to see benefits evaporating while the company shifts the glory up the chain to the VP's and executives.

    I would not recommend this company to anyone I cared about. Some places can poison you; they can kill the passion you once had for your career. Take it from an industry veteran: For your own benefit and well-being, avoid places like this like the plague. Do not spend hours of your life toiling for something that doesn't care about you or your life. Life is short, keep the passion, find what you love. If you don't love it, set yourself free and dare to dream.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IGT was once one of the best places I've ever had the pleasure to work. You guys ruined it. If you're not as mean or incompetent as I think you are, then please take a look at the things the company used to do. I don't mean spending gobs of cash on the employees, I mean listening to your employees and valuing them both as professionals and human beings. Don't bang the "you have to work overtime" gong for months and then later get mad at them when they need to leave early to pick their kid up for a doctor's appointment. Stop playing games, stop treating your employees like a bunch of incompetent school-children, and stop lying to your employees. Right now, you are fostering an attitude of "us versus them" - that's good when it's used as in "IGT versus the competition", but right now it means "employees versus management". Your company is dysfunctional. Admit that there is a problem, and take steps to fix it.

    Unless, of course, you plan to cash out and leave as soon as GTECH takes over. In that case, I have nothing left to say other than, "Please, do the world a favor and retire. Don't do this to another great company somewhere else."
