GradAustralia surveyed 7 graduates working at Aristocrat. Read on to get an insider’s view on life as a graduate. 7 responses.
Gaining experience and learning different techniques from different employees. I was also allowed to express my main interest (which is in the Animation field) and the company are more than happy to assist me to provide the things needed to explore this. People are very kind and generous and willing to celebrate different things to keep things fresh and fun.
Great work life balance, supportive co-workers, company invested in long term employment.
Global company with career opportunities
Very flexible working hours
Decent wages Creative studio environment
The only thing I can think of is just that we're so busy, and didn't get much chance to practice the animation stuff at times.
Formal graduate program is irregular and often creates scheduling conflicts for day to day work.
Judgement from external people about the industry we work in
The career progression can be slow
Not enough focus on graduate program for those who work in the creative fields.
Phone interview, online test, graduate assessment centre including interview and presentation.
