    Not a very good experience

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsWork environment is OK. Package is ok compared to the work load.

    ConsNot much chance to get promoted. Technologies are very old, you would be amazed to see many legacy products. Too many re-org.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    good work environment, but may not be creatively fulfilling

    Technical Artist (Former Employee)

    Prosgood benefits and salary (considering NV has no state income tax), people are laid back for the most part; room to grow if you gel well with the managers and work.

    Consit's a huge company, so the job may feel very "assembly line" at times and creatively lacking; technical artists from other AAA game studios don't have much room to grow since most of their products look the same and still use 2D graphics technology from 2004; meetings tend to degenerate into watching 2-3 people hash something out, while people in suits end up making big creative decisions

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Spin

    Online Game Artist (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsCool coworkers, relaxed environment, feeding the staff ever few days.
    Good pay.

    ConsTracking and recording your work seemed to take longer than the work itself.
    Not sure what, if anything some middle management is working on.
    The products are for gambling.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great Potential, Uncertainty Hindering Productivity

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFlexible working hours. Benefits are on par with or better than most companies in the area. Salary is good. Great people to work with.

    ConsCurrent climate of uncertainty is scaring good employees away. Having to be on call for customer support 24/7 gets old.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWalk the walk and really be transparent and provide open communication to your employees. We need to identify lower priority projects and cut or postpone them so we are not over-working our staff.

    Good pay, small raises, great coworkers, sent too many jobs to China.

    Software Engineer (Product Assurance Engineer II) (Current Employee)
    Reno, NV

    ProsGood pay and benefits some great people. So far the layoffs seem to target those that are ineffective.

    ConsStill some engineers and management that should be laid off. Wrong people promoted due to managers lack of knowledge about their direct reports.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
