Pros

The people you work with are cool, it's a well known company, so it's good to have on your resume. It is also near major companies like Intel, Yahoo!, Citrix, McAffee, etc. A good job to have if you don't have a degree.

Cons

Dated computers with pentium 3 processors, ego-driven supervisors, poor training program for QA testers, supervisors are often condescending and always arrogant. Pay is very low and has no benefits.

Advice to Management

If you want Namco to still be in business in 2025, you ought to change your beauracratic tendencies and treat your employees better. Satisfied employees + good computers + strong communication + respect = formula for success in the gaming industry.

    Pros

    Being in the entertainment industry, people like to have fun. They tend to be relatively laid back and casual. Always surrounded by art and creativity. Also, this industry is safe - the video game industry seems to be going strong in this weak economy.

    Cons

    I simply do not understand the hiring process here. They never like to pull people up, even those who have been dedicated and knowledgeable employees for years. Instead, they tend to hire new people from different industries who end up not working out. The complete lack of hope for promotion or recognition has resulted in a VERY HIGH turn-around. Ex-employees have mostly gone to competitor companies. Upper management is vicious and there is absolutely no feeling of trust or sharing of information. The pay here is notoriously low for this industry, so not much motivation there either.

    Advice to Management

    Employees should be a company's best asset - however, your treatment of the employees suggest the opposite. Listen to the employees and build them up.
