I have been working at Video Gaming Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Co-workers are top notch
Company buys lunch for the staff each day
Company invests in training staff in new technologies

Cons

Company has had difficulty adapting to explosive growth and the changing organizational needs of a larger company. They are making an honest effort to make changes, only time will tell if they are successful.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need more management types who are more technically literate and will be more capable of translating effectively between senior management and engineering

    I have been working at Video Gaming Technologies full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Free lunch. Allowed to blow off steam by playing foosball during normal working hours. Very advanced IT infrastructure.

    Cons

    * Senior management not very open, and decision making at the top seems to take forever.
    * Management makes promises it does not keep (we will move to new building, but no change 6 years later)
    * Management changes direction, sometimes contradicting itself (spent 1.5 years coming up with strategic plan for 2012, unveiled in JAN, obsolete in mid-March due to announced plant closing)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate to the rest of the company more often. Make a decision, and then stick to it ... especially within the context of a strategic plan (software roadmap) for a given calendar year.
