Letting opportunity after opportunity pass them by

Product Manager, Technology (Former Employee) Brisbane, CA

ProsBelow the executive level, there is little pulling of rank and easy collaboration with some really smart people.

ConsExecutives don't seem to realize that the game industry is growing explosively. The mindset is that of a media company in a mature industry with many revenue streams in decline (perhaps imposed from its parent, News Corporation) . Executives are focused on cutting costs and I watched them let one clearly-identified opportunity after the next pass them by. Fortunately, the division that I was working in has now been sold to a vibrant and innovative company!

Advice to Senior ManagementGo get resources and support to compete!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
