    Pros

    Starting pay tends to be better than the market average (the gaming industry can afford it), but pay increases are at the minimum. New CEO, Trevor Croker, is very personable and takes the time to talk to individuals from different levels across the organisation.

    Cons

    Very top heavy and hierarchical. Does not support employees wanting to develop themselves (the learning and development budget is saved and spent elsewhere). Employee surveys are a waste of time. The same issues are raised time and time again (poor senior management, poor systems, poor communication, no development opportunities) but not a single thing changes. Blame culture. Many members of senior management... are sociopaths and damage employee morale. Human Resources department are completely ineffective - HR projects are never seen to completion. Company strategy is poorly communicated - even members of senior management don't know what it is.

    Advice to Management

    Employ and develop real leaders - "we" not "I" people. Invest in your workforce. Treat employees fairly.

    I worked at Aristocrat Technologies

    Pros

    The company had a great culture and family feel. Staff were warm and friendly. Management were very friendly, and open to feedback and ideas. In 2015 the company went through some re-structual changes so its difficult for me to say how the company is run now.

    Cons

    Work life balance was a bit of an issue.

    Pros

    Good Food in cafeteria and Good office crowd

    Cons

    Frankly speaking , do not join even if they give you a very good salary hike since they are not sure about the product road map . This is true for all departments like GAMES both ( Class 2 and Class 3 ) , Systems D & D ( this is the worst ) , HRIS , IT . Specifically in Systems D & D they are overstaffed and do not have work for all , the Local Managers are always trying to find fault in you / your attitude... / your office timing / your work with an whole objective of firing you. Every three months there are at-least a couple of layoffs . If you do not get the link for Great Place to Work survey then it means that you are not in the good books of your manager. A Couple of years back they started project cricket , it failed badly. They then started writing the new generation software and there was too much interference ( and disruptions ) from the management that the Architects started leaving the organization , many have left from US and some from Noida . Some delivery heads are so political that they will dwarf the seasoned local politicians in cunning . Even the GAMES team is not good , you will end up writing the same code again and again . then there is a whole lot of favoritism which makes the hardworking people look fool.

    Advice to Management

    Fire some of the old timers from Noida office , get some fresh blood , and fresh pair of legs and be professional with your hiring and staffing requirements . If you are not clear with roadmap even in two years then it is your problem and you should exit the business.
