    I have been working at Jagex full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some nice people working for the company.
    Good location.

    Cons

    Atrocious management.
    Cancels company bonus due to lower than expected profits, spends money on a new tank and crushing cars with it.
    Fires employees then expects other members of staff in entirely different job roles to cover the members of staff that have been fired with no additional training or reduction in their current duties (some staff are now working in 3 different job areas, and expected to perform in all 3 of those as if it was their only job).
    Rigidly stuck in using systems that were out of date 5 years ago and created 10 years ago.
    No fore-sight in to potential issues with projects. No analysis of whether the technology planned to be used with a project will actually support that project.
    No oversight on vital areas of the business.
    Anonymous feedback provided to the company is not anonymous.
    CEO gets company employees to fix issues at his home on company time and money.
    CEO has departments order technology for his personal use at home.
    Seizes ideas 6-12 months too late, attempts to move in to market areas only once those areas have already proved popular and have been filled by other companies.
    Fails to innovate.
    Fails to recognise and hold on to talent.
    Makes major changes at the last minute to projects and still expects that project to be on schedule, if the project then falls behind the last minute changes are not at fault - the staff working unpaid overtime are at fault.
