    I worked at Harmonix Music Systems full-time (more than an year)


    The company really tries to make work fun. They have group and company outings, games, giveaways and more. They really do care about their employees and want them to enjoy coming to work.


    The games industry is always in flux and it makes it difficult to maintain stability. There does seem to be a growing disconnect between senior management and the rest of the teams. It seems like perhaps all that spending on culture may have finally exceeded its viability, because they've done so many cuts recently. Sometimes it seems like the focus is more on the fun than long-term sustainability. For innovative developers, coders, etc. there seems to be good opportunity to grow, advance and learn. For anyone on the "corporate" side, there seems to be very little opportunity, though you will learn a LOT while there and make some very good connections.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Any kind of "round table" or ways to submit suggestions or feedback would help the management team get a better understanding for the feeling of the employees. Allowing employees to submit an anonymous suggestion or thought, and then discuss in the open with a large group would allow employees to provide honest feedback (of which there is a lot!) without worry about retaliation of any sort.

    Negative Outlook
