I worked at NTN Buzztime full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Working with talented team members. There is a great culture among other employees. Fun, interesting, and varied projects.

Cons

Heavy politics, big egos, and bloated management, and bad product legacy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Wake up; take an empathetic look at your products and services, and think from your customers perspective whether or not they would trust you with their business. If your answer is anything but no you are fooling yourselves.

Listen to your core team, and not your management. You have a talented pool in individuals who know what they are doing. Stop ignoring them.

You are living in a changing world where business get more value out of free online services such as forsquare, yelp, facebook, google, etc. Your players now have better entertainment that they carry with them in their pockets.

Your product is on life support. Your online offerings make you look like a scam. Unless the core business makes some drastic changes quickly then it will wither and die within five years. You need to complete change your strategy and possibly do a complete 180 on your core business model.

When working there I believed in your company, and I still believe it can be great.
