Good Co-Workers Terrible Management

Content Developer (Current Employee)
Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)

I have been working at Jagex full-time for more than a year

ProsThe people here are friendly.
Work-place Activities 2-4 times a year.
Finally started listening to players.

ConsPeople fired without notice, makes me worried of my job
Frustrations while working with playerbase, we want to help but are limited
Senior Management isn't competent for the job.
Mark needs to stop being a two-face to the public eye

Advice to Senior ManagementPromote people who actually know what they are talking about to manage
Stop focusing on trying to make new games, it hasn't and won't work.

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