I have been working at Square Enix full-time for less than a year

Pros

The company has changed quite a bit from what I have heard. Used to be only a publishing arm for Japan but now the group is creating and publishing their own products in the digital space. Huge growth in the past couple of months.

Cons

A ton of meetings. Sometimes it feels like very little is accomplished in the meetings as many are update meetings and not very action oriented.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow people to continue to grow creatively. Encourage learning. Continue the team building events, and continue to give employees input to the games you are creating. Empower employees to succeed.

    I have been working at Square Enix

    Pros

    Excellent collegial atmosphere that encourages strong camaraderie and teamwork. Most everyone has passion for the products we sell, and its shown in the high level of professionalism and dedication to whatever role an employee has.

    Cons

    Nothing beyond what is typically found in the industry - long hours and lower-than-average pay compared to other industries, but this is a small price to pay to be doing something you love!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember those that kept the ship upright during tougher times and try to reward and recognize their efforts while keeping a forward-looking mentality.
