At Aristocrat as Project manager it's good to learn as Project volume is high and we need to deal with quite a good numbers of projects and track them on daily basis w.r.t schedule scope budget quality etc

learned a lot, decent pay. management was nice. pretty good facility. could use better desks - they are more just like work benches with computers on them. bad for the back, consider sit/stand desks for pending renovations and new building.

There is little opportunity for advancement unless you are pals with someone in a high position. Loyalty and dedication are not rewarded, favoritism is common; rules and guidelines are not enforced uniformly. Fear of retribution when speaking out against management despite the 'open door' policies. There is no mentoring or coaching by managers. Expectations are to work outside normal work hours on a routine basis (with no comp time in exchange) Working weekends to meet unexpected deadlines is common.
The compensation is above average and benefits are better than average as well.
Attempts are made to spark creativity and innovation, Involved in the community and corporate events are common
Middle management is excessive, Too many people 'in charge' yet no one is accountable for decisions, Backstabbing, Favoritism is rampant, Work conditions are highly structured, no personal space or privacy, Little to no chance of advancement or career development.

or you will not be one to make it for the long-term. it is one huge 'click' working at this company. i have seen people do all kinds of crazy things just to keep their job - suck up to management, play the games to get ahead. you have no one that will listen to reason, or even ways to improve processes there. it is the good old boy thing there. people will find fault with you, even if you are doing well, if they don't like you. OR, get this, if they want to bring in someone of 'their' liking (a friend or family member). there is NO security at all with this company.

The company was a great place to work until they have made some management changes. It seems that AU is using the US as a dumping ground for incompetence...There is no departmental stability nor true appreciation for employees who want to and do a great job. Unless you have an AU accent, you will not do well in this company.
There are some who are trying to do the right thing. Not sure how long they will last!
Management does not get it and they are incompetent.
What they claim and what really happens are two different worlds....
Technical Account Manager (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – 11 September 2013
Really was a great job. Loved the flexibility of working from home, the travel, the benefits. Then came the changes, dictated by Australia; Home Office. Slowly started taking a great company and peeling away the benefits and driving the morale into the ground. They are losing business to other clients because of these changes.
Telecommuting, company paid phone, liberal PTO
Poor customer service, double standards, higher ups aren't held accountable, time away from home.
