Pros

Good benefits. Company is stable. You will learn a ton either by being taught but mostly by just doing it.

Cons

Very slow to promote. Low compensation and can be long hours (if you let it).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fair compensation that meets industry standards.

No opinion of CEO

    Bad management, no training or career opportunities. Always told "you should be glad you have a job" mentality.

    I have been working at Square Enix full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Interesting products. Some nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Abusive management. No respect for the workforce. Promises by senior managers never followed through. Awful work environment and extremely low morale. I expect the London office will close before end of 2014.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Act as you expect your workers to. Make an effort to leave your offices and talk to your staff.

    Pros

    Very japanese, nice people to work with. Better now that they've merged with eidos.

    Cons

    cronyism at the very top, nepotism at the very top, slow to move
    reactive rather than proactive, no idea about 'global'
