A typical gaming company; lack of structure. Dynamic but full of Japanese

Marketing Associate (Former Employee)
El Segundo, CA

I worked at Konami Gaming, Inc.

Prosdepending on who you work with, your life will be different. There are good boss and bad boss. I think the company overall is not best run since there are still many integration problems since it moved its office from the North Cal to South Cal.

My boss is great and helps me even when I left the firm.

ConsThere are some dudes at other divisions who don't care what you do/think. I think each division has its own P/L.

Advice to Senior Managementrestructure the bad division

Industrial age management in the information age

Software Engineer (Former Employee)

I worked at Konami Gaming, Inc.

ProsKonami is a well known brand name with huge technical resources in Japan. You are given a lot of opportunities to do a variety of different things within software development but there are no opportunities to broaden your career path. Redundancy seldom occurs so it's a safe company to work.

ConsCareer progression is minimal within Konami if you are not sent from Konami Japan. All the good positions are seem to be held by staff from Japan. Training is weak as all training is done on the job and no standardized training is given. Salary and performance reviews are quite weak as in general salary is lower than industry rivals and increases are minimal. Japan dictates a lot of what is done in development so you don't have opportunities to provide your own input into the work. Also the important components are made in Japan, so know how isn't shared with foreign employees unless it's absolutely necessary.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think Konami management operates Konami like an industrial age enterprise where costs are kept low and innovation isn't promoted unless it's from Japan. Front line people don't often have a voice in rising opinions and suggestions on the creation of new products. I think Konami should re-look at how it should remodel itself on Microsoft or Google in developing processes that can develop innovative products for the future.
