    I worked at Multimedia Games full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with at every level. Has been steadily growing and expanding into new markets. Does a good job of offering career training and fun company activities. Bonus and stock option plans available.

    Cons

    Location of HQ is awful for the commute of pretty much everyone coming from any direction. The sale of company to Global Cash Access Holdings adds some uncertainty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course. Share the wealth with those that do the heavy lifting.

    I have been working at Multimedia Games as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    I've heard of the 'dark days' of MGAM but have no frame of reference. This has been one of the greatest companies I have worked for. The environment fosters creativity and the atmosphere is electric with happy people!

    Great:

    Pay
    Atmosphere
    Perks
    Coworkers
    Revenue

    Cons

    The workload is a bit much, but such is to be expected when a company is growing at this rate. A great problem to have.

    As the previous reviewer stated, the HQ being on 360 is a pain in the rump. The traffic to and from is HORRIBLE!

    Not so great:

    Growing too fast! :P
    Traffic on 360. :(

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up. You guys are doing amazing.

    Pros

    GREAT work/life balance, everyone knows you by name not EEID, On the rise company with a start-up feel, casual dress/culture, and most importantly, even the CEO knows who you are!

    Cons

    Not MGAM's fault, but commute to corp HQ can be a pain some days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees needs/wants and be more interactive around the office. Yes, your busy, but who isn't!!??

    Pros

    Great culture
    Great co-workers
    Innovative environment
    Great work-life balance

    Cons

    Inadequate compensation (until you find another job)
    flat structure leads to not as much growth opportunities
    some members of executive management short sighted and sometimes plain incompetent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    evaluate your worth, evaluate worth of employees regularly. If they're seriously looking for another job, it's already too late. keep up the culture and innovative environment.

    Great place, great talent, lack of senior mgmt vision

    Current Employee - Director in Austin, TX
    Current Employee - Director in Austin, TX

    I have been working at Multimedia Games

    Pros

    Compensation
    People
    Organization
    Work / Life Balance
    Leading edge in MS technologies

    Cons

    Lack of "real" senior strategic vision.
    HUGE compensation gap between execs and VPs and Director.
    Lack of inductry visionaries.
    Removed from industry because of location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire 2 of the 6 partners (the ones that are never here), This company needs more indians and less Chiefs. Having execs that don't even have a permanent residence in Austin is demoralizing, specially when they make insane amounts of money.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX

    I worked at Multimedia Games

    Pros

    No dress code
    New management making better decisions
    Ping Pong ladder tournaments weekly. Even the execs play
    Hard work is now recognized and rewarded

    Cons

    No clear vision of the future of the company from upper management
    Cost cutting started to get irritating, hard to fund projects or back-fill needed positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep making good financial decisions, however, you need to figure out how to hold on the the remaining talent... And perhaps even attract some new talent? The stock has gone up since all the cost cutting, but without talented employees you won't have a product to sell.

    Pros

    Fast Paced environment. Company Barbeque's. Fun and exciting projects. Co-workers are fun, friendly, and intelligent.

    Cons

    Company seems to spread itself thin in new product development. While this can be attributed to the industry's demands, it would be nice to see growth in the use of products already in the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate on acquiring/developing new game titles to expand our selection in current markets. Seek out additional markets that can utilize our existing products.
