Recommends
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Smart, respectful coworkers Lots of non-monetary benefits Flexible schedules Gorgeous campus

Cons

Not sure the management is taking the company in the right direction Lots of unnecessary and unproductive bureaucracy Not a lot of confidence in decision making on an institutional level Not a lot of professional development support or growth opportunity - you have to forge your own path without mentorship

Advice to Management

Choose a path and go down that path with confidence! Empower managers to make QUICK decisions Develop new IP and believe in it, even if it isn't successful immediately - look at Seinfeld, X Files, The Office... Most importantly - people want to play games that are FUN and interesting. They don't always have to look that good or have the most awesome tech if people can't put them down or become completely engrossed in the story.

    global company. opportunity to work with a geographically-dispersed team. good pay if you ask for it. excitement of working for a game company.

    Cons

    management of relationship with contractor work force is not done well. slow progress on projects because of size of company.

    Advice to Management

    figure out a way to retain more of your talent. high turnover due to high percentage of workforce being contractors causes knowledge progression and retention very difficult here.
