    This is not a bad place to work if you dont mind very long hours.

    Pros

    Work day starts later than many other corporate offices. Very relaxed work environment. Unlike most corporate office, everyday is casual Friday. Definately not a traditional CORPORATE office.

    Cons

    VERY LONG HOURS. You pretty much know when your day starts but not when it ends. Very little room for growth work/ life Balance sucks!

    Pros

    casual work environment, no micromanagment / no one looking over your shoulder. great place to work if you have a family, management is flexible about the pressures of your personal life.

    Cons

    communication is a mess. no one cares about fixing what's broken in the company. entry-level guys are worked to the bone with no hope of improved salary/position, management doesn't care about your future at the company.

    Advice to Management

    invest in your people

    Pros

    Hey, It is a video game company. But the perks were not what you would expect. It is an extremely fast paced environment and you will learn new things very quickly.

    Cons

    The big perks are directed to the developers and there is a big rift between the development houses and the rest of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Since there has been a change in leadership things have been better. Keep up the good work, know who is in the trenches working for you. They can help make it a better place.

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Managers fight between each other for the areas of influence, but nobody actually does any good job. Lack of management causes very boring day. People pretend to be busy rather than doing actual work. No overtime paid Being constantly under fire by Rockstar and 2K is nervracking. Labels always blame Take Two for using their money. Burocracy and lack of procedures

    Advice to Management

    Start doing some real work not pretending in order to get your huge share options
