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

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Austin, TX

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

    Cons1) 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 Senior ManagementTake 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A company doesn't care about their employee.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsNot too many pros compared to other companies from I heard. I don't like the company personally

    ConsVery shitty pay for current employer even the company is running good. The workload is super heavy in term of the compensation.

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

    OK place to work, but needs growth.

    Senior Software Developer (Current Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsLots 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.

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

    Poor strategic vision
    Poor communication from management to employees

    Great culture, no growth

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

    ConsInadequate 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 Senior Managementevaluate 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.

    Great place, great talent, lack of senior mgmt vision

    Director (Current Employee) Austin, TX

    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

    A quick, basic review of the company.

    Developer (Current Employee) Austin, TX

    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
