    Pros

    Good team of workers, people want to do a good job, good pay, and good benefits. There is talent in the company at the mid-level and line level.

    Cons

    The biggest problem that ATI has is with Sr. Management. They place incompetent people into Sr. roles. AU uses the US as a dumping ground for poor leaders and talk a good game when it comes to change but never follow through with any good initiatives. I guess it just costs to much to be good. They want only cool-aid drinkers and no one that will challenge poor choices the company makes.

    Advice to Management

    Step back and see what your poor choices are doing to the company.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits about average for Las Vegas.

    Cons

    Upper management likes to talk the talk but NO EXECUTION!!!! The directive comes from AU and the USA is the dumping ground for incompetent Upper Management that is very Chauvinistic. If you try to change things and management does not like you, find a another job because they will fire you!!

    Advice to Management

    You are riding the boat and not helping the company succeed. Either start join in and become a leader or the company is DOOMED.

    Pros

    People you work with directly, pay was decent, usually got requested time off (except for certain busy periods)

    Cons

    Management is horrible now. Like mentioned before, a rudderless titanic and all ship bosses are clueless. Scared to make a decision for fear of reprisal. Good ole boy mgt. workers are burning out from stress.

    Advice to Management

    Remember what you preached, it starts from the top. Fire yourselves you incompetent baboons. You have no problem blaming others and firing them but your incompetence goes unchallenged out of fear of reprisal.

    Pros

    They know what needs to be done and are getting there.

    Cons

    I guess it is which team you are in? The culture in my team was not professional. Some immature poor developers controlling the meetings is disappointing.

    Advice to Management

    Do not let inexperience poor developers usurp positions that are not theirs. Manage and see what happens, actions speak louder than words.

    Pros

    they pay well over the median in many roles. It's a highly political work environment and if you have the street smarts you can fail upwardly there in a spectacular way. The game development people are some of the best and most innovative in the industry.

    Cons

    The politics, the inept and dissconnection of the senior management team with the core business and the product itself, the number of low talent middle managers, the greedy mindset of many of the suits. The footy boofhead mentality of a number of the old guard. The fundamental lack of respect

    Advice to Management

    Realise that the product is the thing that will create wealth and stability not some remarkable yet undefined business accumen on the part of the sales or marketing team. The whole company should understand the product better. The lead games development guys are getting past their prime and succession plans should be more on the agenda. The golden geese are getting old.

    Pros

    Compensation is good and competitive, work life balance is ok. May be a better option when compared to services company

    Cons

    Work is not good enough to be comparable with other product companies, Very Poor Indian Management, Hiring and Firing is very common without any logical justification leading to a high job insecurity. Indian GM is apathetic towards empoyees and more of a showy person.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes and look whats happening actually at India centre
