    Pros

    The good news is that there are teams, agile teams (well sorta), dysfunctional teams, but still teams. If you like doing the same ole comforting thing every week, you'll fit right in.

    Cons

    Don't believe the "life balance" mantra they use in recruiting. It is still a workshop and if you are sick for day or two then you MUST make up for that time and work.

    So, don't get sick or plan on working through your weekend!

    The shop is pretty limited in advancement. Just not a lot of room to grow into any position.

    Pros

    I had the greatest boss in the world. I left after they laid him off.

    Cons

    Sr mgmt. has no gaming experience and are proud of the fact. They make ridiculous decisions. Only Australian yes men get promoted. You worked daily wondering if today was the day you would get made "redundant"

    Advice to Management

    Get some people with US gaming experience and listen to them. Get rid of they Ozzy yes boys.

    Pros

    Decent Company as a whole, good benefits and pretty work space/toilets

    Cons

    Depending where you work aka department (not a small group the entire department) you will need to deal with marginally qualified micro managers. They have a cult like behavior pushed from their managers who pretty push all responsibilities down and blame team members for all the mishaps. You can do 1000 extra things but when you miss 1 thing in the 1000 items you get shamed.

    Limited career advancement as much of hiring/work is planned in India. This implies you may be working 2 jobs in 1. The US timezone and also later during the day

    Advice to Management

    When people started leaving it was already late, time is of the essence

    Pros

    Benefits and pay, working conditions might improve if they take the time to sort everything out,otherwise it's okay

    Cons

    Management does not have a clue
    Being a "valued employee" for 5 plus years,perfect attendance, requested PTO, it was denied,they knew the importance of the time off requested

    Advice to Management

    Clean house with middle mgmt..... need more diversity ... give working employees an opportunity to advance,instead of putting the "friends of friends" in positions that they know nothing of.

    Pros

    Generally good people in the ranks, decent pay. Good facilities. Good working environment. Community involvement programs. Good design and development technology.

    Cons

    Poor morale. Poor senior management. Don't plan on staying long. If you don't leave on your own, you'll generally be shown the door within a few years. The programs designed to change the culture are just window dressing. Lots of politics.

    Advice to Management

    Provide genuine leadership.

    Pros

    Great PTO and Benefits. Pay is fair for most jobs/levels.

    Cons

    Poor management, no appreciation, beyond horrible communication and morale is in the tank.

    Advice to Management

    Work on replacing upper level management with competent and caring leaders. The management in place is only there to collect their paychecks and they never even say thank you. Questionable practices and interpersonal relationships in many instances as well.

    Pros

    Anyone who isn't intimidated by a demanding work environment and the opportunity to interact with skillful, intelligent people who focus on getting things done will probably enjoy their work experience.

    Cons

    The breakneck pace of product development may be a contributing factor to low employee morale and an unusual turnover rate that has not improved.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone needs to be rowing the boat in unison, and in the same direction.

    Pros

    lots of feedback(some even usefull), sometimes easy to contact people, scheduling was usually clear, end user information (i.e. PAR sheets, Base chip information, etc..) was easily accessible for field techs.

    Cons

    obsessive focus on Overtime to the deteriment of normal operations, questionible job standards(i.e. "get the job done" vs "the approved way is.."), routine unequal division of labor among remote techs,

    Advice to Management

    Remember who is the most important person in the company is: THE CUSTOMER. No customers, no business. No business, no job.

    Pros

    If you can speak the political language you can fail to the top

    Cons

    If you want to improve anything make sure you can do it alone and others don't need to contribute

    Plan ahead instead of making everything an emergency
