Great Games Products, Sad management structure
Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVMarch 6, 2016
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.
Pros
Attempts are made to spark creativity and innovation, Involved in the community and corporate events are common
Cons
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.

make sure you have connections 'inside'
administrative assistant (Former Employee) –  nevadaMay 6, 2014
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.
Pros
benefits are good
Cons
a friend hires you or you won't last long

Service Support Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVAugust 27, 2012
* Hands-on working with computers, servers, software and network equipments.
* Everyday is a challenge by learning new things regarding any IT situation.
* Management has been great throughout my career specially in advancement.
* 24/7 on call and the only support and no one to bounce off ideas with.
* I love the fact I have great team to work with and they have become my eyes and ears while onsite.

Cons
24/7 on-call and hardly any time for family.

Great Benefits & Compensation
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVOctober 27, 2012
Aristocrat at the time I was there offered top benefits and compensation to their employees. That said, certain benefits were extended more to the Australian employees (world HQ is in Sydney, AUS) than they were to their American employees (i.e. opportunities to work abroad).

I enjoyed my colleagues and I was able to be someone who led change management in a culture that embraced it.
Pros
great co-workers, good salary & benefits, great company/dept functions
Cons
pro-aussie culture

What they claim and what really happens are two different worlds....
Technical Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVSeptember 11, 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.
Pros
telecommuting, company paid phone, liberal pto
Cons
poor customer service, double standards, higher ups aren't held accountable, time away from home.

It can be better
Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVJune 24, 2015
The job was not what was promised. The culture is poor, no professional attitude from some co-workers.

There seems to be a revolving door in this company for employees. You come in with high expectations and realize that you stepped into something not so great, so you leave.

I recommend you research the company before joining them.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Location is in an industrial area

Slot Machine Assembler II (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVJuly 22, 2015
Very fast paced job. 12-14 Hours a day because of work over load. It was fun working different types of co-workers.

Would be glad to work there again.

Going the wrong direction
Past Employee (Former Employee) –  Las VegasSeptember 22, 2013
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.
Pros
there are some who are trying to do the right thing. not sure how long they will last!
Cons
management does not get it and they are incompetent.

Department Corporate Travel Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVMay 6, 2012
I was the department travel coordinator for tech services booking travel for hundreds of employees so I was VERY busy. This was one of my favorite jobs I have ever had! The Directors in my department were great, and were true to the open door policy...they worked with me to resolve any issues that came up and were very professional. There was a sincere camaraderie ...a true family atmosphere among my co-workers.
Pros
employee recognition
Cons
i honestly had none
