Pros

The perks....free games, time during the work day to take a break and play games, flexibility in your work schedule, nice campus, benefits.

Cons

Really, really big company means its hard to really excel. Its a pretty corporate environment as far as games go, to a fault. Some of the hires are questionable, not enough of the middle managers know the industry. Because of the size, people can skate by with shoddy work, which is frustrating when you are busting your ass.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give the internal studios more creative freedom.

    Pros

    Great facility with a lot of perks like the gym, the resource library and activity groups. Opportunity to work for one of the oldest and biggest developers/ publishers. Exposure to the biggest titles in the gaming industry. Work on projects sold internationally for a company that is international. Great experience opportunities. Work with some of the best in the industry. Fantastic benefits.

    Cons

    Individuals can get lost in the machinery of the company. Sometimes the "Process" out ways individual creativity. Some people may feel it is to big for them. Very competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to find ways to allow our internal development teams to develop new IP's. Pay our development teams and groups working directly on games better. Always remember that even though we are an international business, we make video games, our money comes from making great games.

    Cons

    Compensation lower in comparison to other bay area companies (at least in the customer service department), Politics are sometimes involved when positions are chosen, it is a large corporation so it can be easy to get lost, sometimes changes in policy take longer to make because it is such a large company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make compensation more competitive with other Bay Area companies, try to pick employees based on the best qualifications rather than for political reasons
