    Pros

    They have work life balance down in that no one really works that hard in comparison to other IT jobs.

    Cons

    The place is full of passive aggressive politics and back stabbing. This is encouraged by management and leads to a culture avoidance and CYA that makes doing your job very difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. Bring in real technology product development people and a proven process that can be used to build real products for your consumers.

    Don't work here unless you game and plan on having to wait to until someone retires or dies to get promoted.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules, friendly coworkers, and playing games during work.

    Cons

    Lack of career advancement opportunities, favoritism from senior management towards "friends" when promoting employees, the cultural environment is that of gamers so if you aren't a herd core gamer you may find it difficult to breach the political favoritism entrenched within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to be an unbiased manager, go back to school and take some business classes, and just because you have a BA in English doesn't mean you know how to properly execute projects, marketing plans, and employee management.
