    Pros

    they respect your weekends. the weekends are yours unless it gets very busy but then they will try not to make you work on your weekends. in turn the weekdays might be longer at crunch mode but you do get OT. they won't offer a higher position unless you have some type of interest in the position. if you need to take time off for certain reasons its fairly easy to request time off unless your in chrunch mode. if your responsible and cover your hours accordingly you can take time in the day to excercise and do your preventative care.

    Cons

    like any big video game company(100+employees) your just a number. they don't look at your tenure or what you have accomplished, being layed off is common. with 100+ employees perks might be hard to come by but at least do something to let your employees know that they're appreciated. as aways the political game is played here as well. if a boss likes you then you're favored. we usually don't get much feedback since work is pretty consistent and constant. down time has been far inbetween. most of the crunch time modes coincide with usual vacation months summer time and xmas times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    appreciate your workers not with words but with action.

    Pros

    Very interesting industry. Great products. Very nice people at middle management level and below.

    Cons

    Grueling hours and no respect for work-life balance. Sr Management is more concerned with their personal bottom line than with grooming and furthering growth of their employees. Head of HR does not care about people and runs the entire group without personal touch. If you are below Director, you are not valued.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more of an interest in the professional development of your team and they will reward you with the kind of results you are looking for. Get rid of the churn-and-burn mentality and treat everyone with respect and recognition for the work that they do.

    Pros

    Nice place to work, great games, challenges and experience.

    Cons

    Low salary, no social life support, same routine, overtime not paid, no space to grow, one small mistake can cost you any chance to grow although limited, unless you know the right people. No pay rise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about your employees at a personal level, with inflation going up and no overtime paid a person is simply home-work-home, not worth it. Open more positions, people can stay 3+ years in the same role with no advancement AT ALL.
