Pros

Smart people, great perks. Pre-IPO, it was a fantastic place to work.

Cons

All games are the same, politicking here is the worst I've seen. Way too much micro-management, it's the same number-crunching across divisions at the cost of the games and the politics here is obnoxious.

    Talented people being managed by monkeys is a certain recipe for a disaster. Rather sad really.

    Pros

    Free food and the paycheck cleared the bank.

    Cons

    Employee morale is so low, if you work her you will become depressed and stressed out. As tempting as it may sound at first, you will definitely want to save your time and stay far away from this ticking time bomb.

    Advice to Management

    Quit your job.

    Pros

    They do treat their employees very well with amenities. You get to work with really smart individuals. Management, at least when I was there, was solid.

    Cons

    Many people work long hours and the company is a little lost.
