Poorly run, outdated studio

Artist (Former Employee) Houston, TX

Pros- good place to break in the industry but you won't get paid much
- talented, friendly coworkers

Cons- management consists mostly of people with little experience outside of Timegate.
- no visibility on decisions made, grunt level developers (ie the ones who actually work) have no input.
- lots of crunch.
- owner treats it as his toy.
- lots of turnover
- low pay, even by Texas standards
- only studio in Houston, if you are laid off, prepare to move.

Advice to Senior Management- Hire outside the office, and shell out the money required to make a studio functional
- the modern game studio requires more visibility and developer input. The top down approach is outdated.
- anger management

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
