Great place, great talent, lack of senior mgmt vision

Director (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

I have been working at Multimedia Games

ProsCompensation
People
Organization
Work / Life Balance
Leading edge in MS technologies

ConsLack of "real" senior strategic vision.
HUGE compensation gap between execs and VPs and Director.
Lack of inductry visionaries.
Removed from industry because of location.

Advice to Senior ManagementFire 2 of the 6 partners (the ones that are never here), This company needs more indians and less Chiefs. Having execs that don't even have a permanent residence in Austin is demoralizing, specially when they make insane amounts of money.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Getting better

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Austin, TX

I worked at Multimedia Games

ProsNo dress code
New management making better decisions
Ping Pong ladder tournaments weekly. Even the execs play
Hard work is now recognized and rewarded

ConsNo clear vision of the future of the company from upper management
Cost cutting started to get irritating, hard to fund projects or back-fill needed positions

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep making good financial decisions, however, you need to figure out how to hold on the the remaining talent... And perhaps even attract some new talent? The stock has gone up since all the cost cutting, but without talented employees you won't have a product to sell.

A quick, basic review of the company.

Developer (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

I have been working at Multimedia Games

ProsFast Paced environment. Company Barbeque's. Fun and exciting projects. Co-workers are fun, friendly, and intelligent.

ConsCompany seems to spread itself thin in new product development. While this can be attributed to the industry's demands, it would be nice to see growth in the use of products already in the market.

Advice to Senior ManagementConcentrate on acquiring/developing new game titles to expand our selection in current markets. Seek out additional markets that can utilize our existing products.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Great culture, no growth
