    Company could gain more with increased cross functional collaboration

    It is important for upper management to show cohesion and work well together.

    Pros

    -Good work life balance
    -Stable company and growing

    Cons

    -The overwhelming sense of coldness
    -Feels like you're working in a silo
    -The tech and tools are dated
    -Everyone speaks in hushed tones, there is NO WARMTH, no company culture, no fun, no laughing, no music, no bringing in family or visitors, no team outings, no joy. This is the type of place that you WANT TO BE happy because it only makes sense that the industry is based on fun and positivity and bringing people to our great city to spend their money on the best games out there.
    -I loved my work. I was good too, and appreciated the recognition in that sense at least, but nothing and no amount of money would keep me somewhere that I wasn't getting the feeling like I was more than a number.

    Advice to Management

    Leaving made me sad because the work was quality. But NOTHING is more important than feeling like you can' make friends at work or that your coworkers truly care for each other on a deeper level. People spend more time at work than at home and the atmosphere here was crushing. Why can't this company (with the potential to be amazing) adopt some sort of culture to engage employees as human beings, thus turning them into better workers, and better people. This company could stand to take notes from leaders like Google, Zappos.com and Southwest. Adopting this could take this company over the top and leaps and bounds ahead of its competitors.

    Pros

    The company itself is well-established, and the management is quite knowledgeable and helpful. The site repairs are quite fun, as well!

    Cons

    None that I can think of, honestly, other than issues with leadership.

    Pros

    Most people that work at Konami are nice. Good work/ life balance most of the time. Benefits still good but they get a little worse every year. Stable job, I didn't see any lay off during my time.

    Cons

    Upper management think they are in Japan. We are paying you so put your head down and work attitude. If you want to innovate and feel appreciated this might no be the place for you. Salaries are a bit below market even with the bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in people. Small perks make a big difference and you feel appreciated. No talented person want to work in place were they don't feel appreciated

    Pros

    The pay here is good - in the beginning

    Cons

    Good Pay = 1st out the door when layoff's come around. "Covert Layoff's" that is. When this company needs to save money by laying off....watch your back! They can not simply lay you off.....they will dig into your company issued lap tops and or issued phones...etc, to attempt to find ANYTHING on you...in order to fire you to try and avoid paying out unemployment. Buyer beware....if you make good money here....you're days are numbered.

    Advice to Management

    Show some integrity and class when trimming the fat and stop the COVERT layoff's
