I worked at Atari

Pros

Good benefits, vacation accrual better than most companies. Very laid back atmosphere and fun environment to work in. The excitement of midtown NYC.

Cons

Declining staff due to lay-offs, downsizing. People did not know whether or not the company would continue to exist or if they were next on the chopping block.

No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Atari

    Pros

    Gaming-centric company culture and fast moving. You'll never want for projects and work to be done, and updates/changes are implemented quickly and quietly. Its intense work, but immensely satisfying and you learn fast.

    Cons

    During crunch, support can be life-consuming. You have to learn to do a lot with less, and you adapt quickly to finding cheap/easy solutions to last minute problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan ahead ! Last minute emergencies should not be commonplace. If you plan accordingly, folks will put in the time to make things happen. If you drop things on their lap at the last second, they become less and less inclined to rush for a resolution.

    I worked at Atari full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A very creative environment and a challenging business to be in. Video, PC and App games are still a forward-thinking industry with room for expansion.

    Cons

    There were frequent management changes resulting in a loss of direction. Also, there were times when no risk was taken as the company continued to shrink in the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hopefully, new management will get the company on track.
