Pros

Pay is fair
Good work/home life balance
Unique work experience working with Indian casino gaming
Casual work environment and dress code

Cons

Training is virtually nonexistent
Disorganized in a lot of business processes
Support from management is lacking at times
Employees are placed in positions without consideration of their qualifications or their career path

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When you unilaterally pigeonhole your employees into undesirable positions, you're pretty much telling them you don't value them as employees and they will go elsewhere. Start treating your employees as partners instead of flunkies. Work with them on their career paths to find the best fit for both the employee and the company.

    OK place to work, but needs growth.

    I have been working at Multimedia Games

    Pros

    Lots to work on and it's pretty dynamic. Chances to work on a variety of technologies / platforms, so it never gets boring. Work / life balance is pretty good. Rewards are given more for success than for simply working hard.

    Cons

    No real chance for career growth - company is stagnant and offers few opportunities to climb the corporate ladder.
    Not a place to come if you're a beginner - there is no training and most developers are too busy to show newbies the ropes.
    Not very much cooperation among teams or even within teams - everyone is out to prove that they are the indispensable team / developer, even if it means putting down good ideas simply because they did not think of them first (how else could we have 3 different developments for the SAME product).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foster a more cooperative environment among people and teams. Growth growth growth (I know, easier said than done).
