Thread regarding International Game Technology layoffs

Any September Layoffs?

Was there any September layoffs?
Thinking about leaving the company prior to getting layed off. Just want to know where we stand right now.

I would agree with you, Anonymous. Top tier talent has been let go left and right. Nothing is based upon merit. I think they run a program that just spits out names and the list is made. For the person who posted the original message, it's time to look for something else and leave as soon as you find a better and more stable job. Good luck to you.

I think it's safe to say the lists of people they are going to let go are already drawn up, the company is just pending the next set of financial results before the decision is made, and that cycle will continue indefinitely. Most employees will be able to see where they fit into those layoff lists based on if they were furloughed during the covid crisis in the first place, (rather than being considered an essential employee and kept around for that period) and the order in which they were brought back, so my advice is to plan accordingly. Anyone that thinks they have a long term plan here is disillusioned anyway, and this is not a place to grow out a career. I have seen a lot of top tier talent discarded after long periods of success in the company. There is a very nasty managerial culture, nothing is merit based, rather based on legacy friendships and favors done between people at the top, making it a truly rotten organization.

I would wait for a severance package before I quit. I would also be active in finding my next job before I quit, but that's just me.
