    working hard but pay is not above market average, unless you find competitive offer or fight hard for salary increase.

    please do pay better, so that we don't spend time looking elsewhere.

    Pros

    Very progressive company, keep pushing the frontline of this industry. Come up with new awesome products each year. I worked in Mobile department. The working hour was flexible and you can WAH however most people there work overtime.

    Cons

    Project managers most of the time have no idea about the workload you have. That makes job assignment uneven across the team.

    Pros

    Fast paced. Up-to-date with cutting edge technology

    Cons

    Poor work-personal life balance. No 401K matching. Poor employee development options, as training opportunities are curtailed in the name of "cost cutting". Favoritism is rampant - Dumb people with a salesman tongue, who regularly have lunch with their managers hog the limelight when it comes to pay hikes. Power hungry managers have utter disdain for the capabilities of other teams. Politics has taken control over what used to be a creative, motivating and fast-paced environment.

    Advice to Management

    Management should give due recognition to talented and hard working individuals, and not just the smooth talking ones. Give due importance to employee benefits such as 401k matching, if the company isn't able to keep up with the pay hikes. I agree that community giving is important, but importance should also be given to hard working employees who are severely underpaid. It's discouraging if millions are being handed out in the name of the Company while the common employee has a hard time keeping up with the inflation.

    Pros

    Chance to learn about cutting edge technology Exposure to games/graphics industry Work Life balance Friendly colleagues with few politics CEO always share new ideas and company strategies

    Cons

    Weak Middle Management, Manager don't even fight for promotion or recruitment. Bad place to start off your career, have to learn things yourself, not much guidance involved. High learning curve Company fire people or choose not to hire people if they change business strategy

    Advice to Management

    Manager, do some justice to your people who work hard, at least fight for them for promotion and recruitment. Not just listening to top management on their firm and rigid restrictions
