    Pros

    Fun environment, some great people, good starting point for gaming

    Cons

    very low salary, turnaround is high and they don't seem to care. Working there felt like a popularity contest all the time. Hard work does not get noticed, but if you make a big fuss about it, you might get more noticed.

    Advice to Management

    It's not a popularity contest. Make your employees feel rewarded, not resentful.

    Pros

    Fun place to work, able to take ownership of the positions available, open door policy, great salary and benifits, solid HR department, flex hours, fast pace office.

    Cons

    You have to have an outward personality or else you'll struggle. Interdepartment communication can sometimes be a challenge. If you drive parking can be a challenge.

    Pros

    AAA Development and fresh fruit.

    Cons

    AAA Development. I was so lucky to be a contractor and have a great Creative Director. But my visits to the development pits left me scarred. How do you say "sweat shop" in French?

    Advice to Management

    Be less French. Be less game geeky.

    Good place to start out. Good way to get a credit.

    High school popularity contests. If you're not french, hang it up. You don't matter.

    Pros

    nice games and company knows how to make a party one of the biggest software devs means that games are big scale

    Cons

    Corporate culture of producing games is growing worse. disappointed with how it is becoming a business instead of a game developer.

    Advice to Management

    open your eyes before it is too late and you become EA. Short term gains over long term will only ensure a drop in growth of the company.
