Current CEO: Patti Hart
International Game Technology, or IGT, designs and sells video and digital gambling games. The company was born in the 1950s in Reno, Nevada, but emerged from obscurity in the late 1970s with the creation of one of the world’s first video poker machines.
The company went public in 1981, initiating a worldwide expansion that is still ongoing today. Throughout that time, it has remained a leader in the development of gaming equipment and methods, offering typical video slots, as well as adapting cultural games around the world to video gambling.
It has introduced many new concepts into casino gaming. One important innovation was the introduction of systems that allow smaller gaming establishments to offer large jackpots by pooling the receipts of machines across many sites. Another important innovation was the development of casino loyalty cards and customer tracking.
The company became a member of the Standard and Poor’s 500 index in 2001, and won a spot on the list of the "Best-Managed Companies in America" published by Forbes in 2004. International Game Technology is still headquartered in Reno.
A diverse array of opportunities is available for those working at IGT. The company offers positions at sales, warehouse and service sites around the globe, from the Philippines to Macau to Manitoba, Canada. It also has major development centers in Beijing, Melbourne, San Francisco, Lancashire and The Netherlands. International Game Technology careers range from game design and art production to IT and internet security, and include opportunities in accounting, business planning and strategy, law, manufacturing and many other fields.
The company’s success relies on creativity and innovation. As such, the IGT culture gives employees a casual environment in which all are encouraged to express their ideas, and all are encouraged to work together to implement the best ideas.
International Game Technology benefits packages include extensive medical benefits, with health, dental and vision plans. Other familial benefits include onsite day care and adoption assistance.
The company offers a variety of financial benefit plans above and beyond salary. For starters, it has a 401(K) plan that is beefed up by profit sharing. In addition, it offers a “cash sharing” plan that pays a portion of annual profits directly to employees as cash. Finally, it offers an employee stock purchase discount plan, bonuses for hiring referrals, intellectual property incentives and a 529 plan to help employees save for their children’s education.
