    Overly political, bureaucratic place but offers job stability, good resume padding.

    Pros

    Interesting work sometimes. Lots of very smart programmers and artists. Products are very stable, so job security is good if you know what you're doing.

    Cons

    Not a place for real programmers, artists, and people who want to make games. Bean counting is all-important. Producers and managers run the show. Good place to get on your resume then out. No other game development companies in the area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the corporatism and bureaucracy. Allow programmers and artists the freedom to innovate without fear of bean counters and schedule hounds.

    Pros

    It is quite easy to move up the ranks and get a lot of experience quickly because of the short production cycles. Overall the procedure for creating the products is extremely refined.

    Cons

    Working on the same products over and over. Producer try to steer the project in odd directions. Plagued by scrounging for innovation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management would definitely benefit from letting the engineers help working on the creative side as some designs seem to be completely off-base technologically.
