Great work space, snacks and a fun environment. Work-Life balance is still good. Many talented individuals ready to do what it takes to build great software.
Mediocre middle management has diluted the ability for the talented and passionate individuals to make meaningful contributions. It is impossible to be productive in the current environment due to the bloated processes, lack of leadership knowledgable in our genre, and lingering technical debt. There are poor and outdated policies when it comes to promoting current employees or paying competitive wages.
Advice to Management
Double Down/IGT still has some talented people however this is dwindling day by day. This talent is wasted because of technical debt, mediocre contributors in key management positions and poor communication from the executive team. It is particularly confounding how the product team directors and VP are among the most clueless and powerless individuals in their positions. They have been unable to drive any sizable contributions to the product for many months. Point blank, replace the executive team with people that can work together to solve the issues at hand. The problems are Top-Down and easily solved with great leadership and improved communication. On the software side, after 3 years of trying to correct technical debt, start a completely new platform and port the quality game content over.
