    You can work in a good silo, or in a very bad silo. Either way it's a silo...

    Pros

    Strong company with a decent client base will likely be around for a while.

    Cons

    1) Location location location. The location is horrible.
    1a) Depending on what department you work for: inflexible work hours. Mandatory core hours force employees to drive on 360 during peak hours resulting in insane commute times.
    2) Depending on what department you work for: management can be awful. Departments run on fear. Backstabbing. Active undermining. Seriously hostile work environment type stuff.
    3) Depending on what department you work for: absolutely NO career path. In fact, when members of the team wanted to pursue alternate career paths, they were actively prohibited from doing so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a long hard look at your middle management structure and decide if it is really worth continuing to pay those people to chase away top talent.

    If you are looking for stable employment and a paycheck, this is a solid place to work. If you want a career, look elsewhere.

    OK place to work, but needs growth.

    Current Employee - Senior Software Developer  in  Austin, TX
    Current Employee - Senior Software Developer in Austin, TX

    Pros

    Lots to work on and it's pretty dynamic. Chances to work on a variety of technologies / platforms, so it never gets boring. Work / life balance is pretty good. Rewards are given more for success than for simply working hard.

    Cons

    No real chance for career growth - company is stagnant and offers few opportunities to climb the corporate ladder.
    Not a place to come if you're a beginner - there is no training and most developers are too busy to show newbies the ropes.
    Not very much cooperation among teams or even within teams - everyone is out to prove that they are the indispensable team / developer, even if it means putting down good ideas simply because they did not think of them first (how else could we have 3 different developments for the SAME product).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foster a more cooperative environment among people and teams. Growth growth growth (I know, easier said than done).

    Pros

    Talented, fun, fearless people
    Huge potential for market growth
    Unique, interesting industry

    Cons

    Lack of accountibility

    Poor communication from management to employees
    Lack of career advancement
    High stress mode of operation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Believe in the company's potential and put more effort in trying to grow the company versus trying to unload the problems. Strong and clear strategic vision and leadership are greatly needed.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Great culture
    Great co-workers
    Innovative environment
    Great work-life balance

    Cons

    Inadequate compensation (until you find another job)
    flat structure leads to not as much growth opportunities
    some members of executive management short sighted and sometimes plain incompetent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    evaluate your worth, evaluate worth of employees regularly. If they're seriously looking for another job, it's already too late. keep up the culture and innovative environment.

    Current Employee - Director  in  Austin, TX
    Current Employee - Director in Austin, TX

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Lack 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 ManagementAdvice

    Fire 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.

    A quick, basic review of the company.

    Current Employee - Developer in Austin, TX

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Company 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 ManagementAdvice

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