    Pros

    -Great games after getting rid of the shovel-ware

    Cons

    -HR is a joke, they do not follow policies that are put into place to protect an employee
    -There is no mentoring to help people in their dream jobs
    -Mangers do not do their jobs, push the work on the people underneath them, then complain when it is not completed
    -They say their is a college reimbursement program, but not one person who signed up for it has gotten it
    -They choose to play hardball with studios that are part of the same publisher when things are not going their way
    -There is no way to get out of a position into another one
    -Secretive about everything, they do not share things with the employees, used to be very open
    -They allow racist comments towards other employees in front of HR, nothing was done
    -Ideas on how to improve work flow are stolen from the employees and no credit is given to them, saw this numerous times
    -HR is hardly around, doesn't understand geek and nerd culture, always talks down to you
    -Not allowed to really leave your desk or take a break with out HR and Mangers flipping out.
    -People who are able to multitask and have multiple things going on get their chewed out for multitasking
    -Inter office politics is a terrible thing here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your employees, follow policies, stick up for your employees, help them get to their dream jobs.

    I have had numerous current employees at a number of locations who have stated that they will be looking for other employment. Some have told me that they never again wish to work at a video game company simply because of how they are being treated.

    The sad thing about this company is the fact how quickly they can push away talent people, its happening in all of their studios.

    Although the games that are coming out are going to sell well, they really are making a lose simply because they treat people like a number and not a person.

    The BEST suggestion I have for upper management and Im talking CEO level travel to these small studios and seriously see what is going on.

    Doesn't Recommend
