Last night, I had the weirdest dream. I was young and back at IGT. All of engineering was back. It was cash-sharing day...the BBQ...everyone was happy. I miss those days I guess.
How does the future of IGT look? Do you think they will reopen the Las Vegas Buffalo office?
What do you guys think?
It’s a shame that right when yo think this company is bouncing back, they continue cutting people. I think the only people left are a few in Rhode Island that IGT has to keep in order to get the tax breaks that were offered in exchange for a... — read more
IGT just laid off a bunch of LSRs and DSMs, added stores to lsr not getting the can, I think IGT is sinking and it's trying to save itself. Leave while you can
Does anyone have informations on March layoff?
It's hard to believe that we are heading into our eleventh month since the initial request to work from home and then the furlough and then layoffs for many of our peers. Do you think IGT will start reopening the building? Do you think the worst... — read more
Diego here again. It’s been a wild ride over the last few months. Where do we stand going forward? Will IGT recall some people furloughed/layed off? Will they eliminate more positions? Will the cafeterias reopen again? Where is the direction of IGT... — read more
Does this mean there will be no immediate need for more layoffs? Or am I just deluding myself? "International Game Technology PLC Announces Agreement To Sell Italian B2C Gaming Business For €950 Million In... — read more
I was hoping for salvation, but this seems increasingly hopeless. There is no end to dismissals. The situation is bad not only in this company but in the whole industry. I wonder if it’s all about the way the company is managed during crisis or some... — read more
Well we made it to December. I’ll kick things off. How does IGT fare for this month? Do you think we will get cut or perhaps will we receive a bonus? Let’s kick off the comments below.
September and October was relatively quiet. It's November 2, and I was just let go from the Las Vegas location. I'll miss this place. Was anyone else cut?
Going into October now. How are things looking? In particular, will the Las Vegas, NV campus reopen? I’m concerned about the fate of Las Vegas. Anybody have information?
Was there any September layoffs? Thinking about leaving the company prior to getting layed off. Just want to know where we stand right now.
Got my Retirement offer today. Not very good at all. 19 weeks salary and 19 weeks COBRA. Absolutely horrible offer. I will not be taking it! What an insult!
Here in NYC we are hearing rumors of a possible Bankruptcy Filing. My manager mentioned it but told us to keep it quiet. What is anyone hearing ?
Just to clarify, IGT and GTECH/Lottomatica merged a couple of years ago, and chose the name IGT. The following is my best recollection so it might have some minor errors: IGT is located in Nevada and does mostly c-sino machines. Lottomatica is a... — read more
Since we are into June, I was wondering how things are faring? Anyone have updates?
Just heard that approximately 60 people from the Reno and Las Vegas offices will be layed off effective 06/01/20. Most of the affected were part of the engineering studio called Lighthouse. IGT will only pay benefits for one month. That's so cheap... — read more
So...will the small gaming manufactures survive this crises??
They are furloughing employees and if your non-union, reducing salaries. Here in NYC, we are union strong. https://www.legalsportsbetting.com/news/covid-19-causes-igt-to-furlough-on-thousands-of-us-employees/
Who will be cut first?
Igt may layoff 1,000 jobs in rhode island. Its in the news today.
Curious to hear what you all have been hearing.
When a company lays you off, it has been my observation that you, as an ex-employee of XYZ Corporation are far better off for it. They don't lay off people unless they are suffering. But - getting fired for non-performance is on you. That too isn't... — read more
Sad but just got laid off in NYC
Hold on to your bums Dearest, the 21 February earnings call at SGMS will be most interesting. It's make or break time; albeit, outside analysts are expecting a decline in earnings, making SGMS at minimum, in near coma. That is until they shed a large... — read more
Loyalty? To what? Seriously, that frame of mind is absurd. You work, you get paid, end of story. It's really that simple. When work ends- you don't get paid. When the job ends, you find another job. That's reality. That is the attitude from above... — read more
January is almost here. Given IGT's history, you know what is coming. I hope you didn't spend too much this Christmas, the bill will be due just about the time they walk you out.
It’s thanksgiving and we just announced layoffs within field services due to outsourcing within east coast. Wow no shame!!
Layoffs happening in Reno as part of "restructuring". I saw several people being walked out on Friday, mostly long-time employees. This company has no loyalty to anyone anymore, it's time for all of us to drop our loyalties and leave on our own... — read more
It seems like things are starting to quiet down and there is a lull in layoff rumor news. Does that mean there is some element of job security right now or is just just the calm before the storm?
I am hearing from a birdie that something is going on as far as a reorganization.
Reduction in staff due to capex review occurs yearly. This is not a layoff but reduction as needed to ride cost and promote efficiency within the department. Hiring will occur and employees turned based on performance and salary. This approach allows... — read more
As it has been a couple of months since the occurrence of the last round of significant layoffs, I can’t help but be concerned that another one is in the works. Has anyone heard any news? It’s really unfortunate that the unstable climate now seems... — read more
I am afraid to tell you as part of management thAt layoffs are not over. Capex is now mandatory review, synergies are the norm, and we are told to tighten belts, and look once a year if a person isn’t needed even for short term. We could hire new... — read more
Many of us in the San Francisco Interactive office were let go. Some of our group members in London were let go as well. We are barely making it here even with jobs given the cost of living in the bay, and now I am out of a job right before... — read more
I hear employees are grouping to join unions to avoid massive layoffs or favoritism when it comes to layoffs. NY, Arizona, Rhode Island and NJ are joining Unions. Management in NY/NJ/CT/RI are becoming closer to their buddies to find which ones to... — read more
