    I worked at Multimedia Games full-time

    Pros

    Professional work environment, lots of good hardware for the word needing to be done, good benefits and bonus

    Cons

    I really respected this place and all they offered to someone like me that wanted to stay in Austin and not go elsewhere for work. I was really happy until they hired on at least 2 people fired by a another company for drug use. These people were high at work, bragged about it according to the people from that company they were let go from, and by hiring them it has caused many very qualified people who might otherwise have wanted to come to Multimedia not want to apply or work here. I didn't know these guys before they showed, but their placement in spite of their past has cost our reputation.

    I worked at Multimedia Games

    Pros

    Get to work in a field (gaming/gambling) that is unusual and few people get to see. Lots of interesting and behind the scenes view into casinos.

    Cons

    You will be worked hard and expected to be available for support at all hours of the night. You may have to travel at any given moment with very little notice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more appreciation to employees that go the extra mile. Offer bonuses and stock to employees that put in extra time and effort or go above and beyond.

    I worked at Multimedia Games

    Pros

    Good pay, and I learned a lot. They used cutting edge server and data base technology, interesting field. Good hiring practices.

    Cons

    Extreme number of late night support calls. Too many projects with too few engineers. Owners sons given free reign. Expected to provide poor customer service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take Fewer projects, focus on a small set of core customers and make them extremely happy. Don't allow business development to promise features without consulting development.

  8.

    I have been working at Multimedia Games

    Pros

    Lots to work on and it's pretty dynamic. Chances to work on a variety of technologies / platforms, so it never gets boring. Work / life balance is pretty good. Rewards are given more for success than for simply working hard.

    Cons

    No real chance for career growth - company is stagnant and offers few opportunities to climb the corporate ladder.
    Not a place to come if you're a beginner - there is no training and most developers are too busy to show newbies the ropes.
    Not very much cooperation among teams or even within teams - everyone is out to prove that they are the indispensable team / developer, even if it means putting down good ideas simply because they did not think of them first (how else could we have 3 different developments for the SAME product).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foster a more cooperative environment among people and teams. Growth growth growth (I know, easier said than done).

    Pros

    Talented, fun, fearless people
    Huge potential for market growth
    Unique, interesting industry

    Cons

    Lack of accountibility

    Lack of career advancement
    High stress mode of operation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Believe in the company's potential and put more effort in trying to grow the company versus trying to unload the problems. Strong and clear strategic vision and leadership are greatly needed.

    Pros

    * If you want a job where you can sit back and be lazy, this is the place for you.
    * They tend to be very loyal, often hiring back former employees who quit or get fired. Though, I'm not sure that's a good thing.

    Cons

    Middle and upper management spend more time trying to stab each other in the back than get actual products out the door.

    * Antiquated technology
    * Antiquated thinking
    * Not a technology company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that you're a technology company, and understand what that means.

    Pros

    Casual work environment and work / life balance
    Some career growth possible
    Good location
    Ok compensation

    Cons

    Disloyal senior management trying to sell the company
    No accountability in senior management
    Too political for a company this small
    No real innovation done recently, just renaming past products
    Too much disparity between groups
    Losing talented people either voluntarily or forcing them out
    Immoral practices

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce executive compensation. Invest in employees instead. Get rid of politics. Promote/commend employees who do the real work, not who are taking credit for it.
