    I have been working at Voltage Entertainment USA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Employees who are passionate about their projects and genuinely want our company to succeed.

    -Open minded work place with a comfortable, casual feel.

    -A dream job for those who are looking to work on otome/dating games in the United States. There is also hints of Japanese culture around the company since our home branch is Japanese.

    -Management is extremely transparent on the status of the company. We have a company meeting every month in order to keep everyone updated of the status of the company. Questions are encouraged on a public or private platform. It's up to the employees to ask them.

    -Very convenient location downtown. Only a couple of blocks away from the nearest public commute

    -For new employees management likes to grow them and play to their strengths and interests.

    Cons

    -We need to standardized pipelines of how we ship out our titles and amalgamate the separate teams (production and art) and are currently in the process of doing so

    -Sometimes too much transparency may cause distress to those on the floor unwilling to ask questions and cause people to come to their own conclusions of the current state of the company based on the basic information that was given. DON'T be the person who doesn't ask for more information. Private meetings with management (or those who act as a medium) is always an option.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep an open mind of team restructuring and introducing hierarchies in the mix. Continue to move forward in bringing the separate departments and teams in the company together so we can ship even stronger more cohesive products. Continue being that opened forum that allows employees to ask questions in public or private in order to clarify current events.

    We are always improving how we do things and as someone on the floor I get the feeling management genuinely cares about their employees and wish to encourage a happy work environment.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Voltage Entertainment USA (San Francisco, CA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Through a recruiter, multiple interviews with the producer, senior producer, COO, and HR. Done over Skype. All communications through the recruiter. Plus for interest in Anime, Manga, popular movies, tv shows, and other romance focused media. Also plus for experience working in Japan/at a Japanese company. Mainly they wanted to make sure I would fit in the culture of the office.
