    Little in the way of further job prospects.

    I have been working at IGT full-time

    Pros

    Flexible working (office/remote) Friendly colleagues and staff, easy to work with Decent remuneration and perks (not the best, but alright) Office locations/Operations worldwide Good work-life balance

    Cons

    Leadership is weak, and getting progressively weaker since acquisition by GTech Frequent restructuring, resulting in down-sizing (adhoc firing) and change of leadership (adhoc promotions); further weakening of the leadership (lack of confidence) Has become short-sighted over the last few years thereby cutting down on innovation investments. It has already started to slide down in Innovation leadership.

    I have been working at IGT full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    International culture and working environment, although there are a lot of other companies like this

    Cons

    Too many: group fragmented in a plethora of different entities each one with its own goals and priorities, total lack of vision across the board, completely disorganized and destructured, zero respect for individuals, incredibly poor management, employees are constantly let go all of a sudden and nobody has any clue as to why it happened. Salaries level below market average and zero increases if not very sporadically (yet very minimal, e.g. in the 1% range). This is just the result of an inorganic growth never managed as it should. Not a surprise that the stock price is going south big time.
