You can work in a good silo, or in a very bad silo. Either way it's a silo...

Pros

Strong company with a decent client base will likely be around for a while.

Cons

1) Location location location. The location is horrible.
1a) Depending on what department you work for: inflexible work hours. Mandatory core hours force employees to drive on 360 during peak hours resulting in insane commute times.
2) Depending on what department you work for: management can be awful. Departments run on fear. Backstabbing. Active undermining. Seriously hostile work environment type stuff.
3) Depending on what department you work for: absolutely NO career path. In fact, when members of the team wanted to pursue alternate career paths, they were actively prohibited from doing so.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a long hard look at your middle management structure and decide if it is really worth continuing to pay those people to chase away top talent.

If you are looking for stable employment and a paycheck, this is a solid place to work. If you want a career, look elsewhere.

    I have been working at Multimedia Games as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    I've heard of the 'dark days' of MGAM but have no frame of reference. This has been one of the greatest companies I have worked for. The environment fosters creativity and the atmosphere is electric with happy people!

    Great:

    Pay
    Atmosphere
    Perks
    Coworkers
    Revenue

    Cons

    The workload is a bit much, but such is to be expected when a company is growing at this rate. A great problem to have.

    As the previous reviewer stated, the HQ being on 360 is a pain in the rump. The traffic to and from is HORRIBLE!

    Not so great:

    Growing too fast! :P
    Traffic on 360. :(

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up. You guys are doing amazing.

    Pros

    GREAT work/life balance, everyone knows you by name not EEID, On the rise company with a start-up feel, casual dress/culture, and most importantly, even the CEO knows who you are!

    Cons

    Not MGAM's fault, but commute to corp HQ can be a pain some days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees needs/wants and be more interactive around the office. Yes, your busy, but who isn't!!??
