Pros

It's a big international company, made very good game title. The relationship between employer is very good.

Cons

The company didn't respect employer. The management is inefficiency. They only want to do some outsourcing work in China. They didn't know how to sell games in China.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They should follow the trend of game industry.

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere that familiarizes you with the software development process while keeping a working environment that eases someone fresh out of college into the working world.

    Cons

    Chances of retaining extended employment as a QA Tester are not guaranteed. Check with your supervisor how long your contract will last so that you can have another job lined up if it does not look like they will extend your contract.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be upfront with QA contractors and let them know if their chances of acquiring an extended contract are low so that they can work lined up. Other than that it was a pleasure working with you all and I hope things are going well.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    The people are friendly and creative
    DDR Machine and recently released titles to play in the lobby
    Work with people and groups across the US and overseas
    Great office location

    Cons

    Orders from the HQ in Japan come down and cannot be argued with, regardless of how much sense they make
    Upper management and execs in the US are often given little reign to react to their market
    Relies heavily on contractor labor with no benefits even for long term positions, but still ostracizes them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know your hands are largely tied. Maybe Japan will stop trying to suffocate you.
