    Pros

    Pay is good; benefits are good; extracurricular activities are nice; scheduling is somewhat lenient as long as you complete work and activities given to you

    Cons

    Micromanagement is putting it lightly - write a sentence, line of code, perform a test and a report is expected to be sent along with a follow up phone call prior to the next step. Also, this is a multi-continental company, so emails/meetings are expected 24 hours a day

    Advice to Management

    BACK OFF - LET YOUR PEOPLE DO THEIR WORK!

    Pros

    Most departments have good leadership who work with you, mentor you and allow you to grow in the company. The global culture is positive and enabling: one can work hard, develop themselves and move up & around in the company.

    Cons

    C-level drives the company very hard to achieve results, but outdated internal systems, processes and departmental silos get in the way. The result is a high percentage of busy-work and internal selling to get everyday projects done. Work/life balance suffers and high performers burn-out.

    Advice to Management

    Truly invest in internal systems and modernization of processes. Look to great companies outside the gaming business for ideas and advice. Good employees will realize that they can achieve more by working smarter, not harder, and if “smart work” is not available at their current company – they migrate to companies that allow them to do so.

    Pros

    Worldwide company with hard working personnel and good benefits. Company strives/secedes in complying with gaming laws and regulations.

    Leadership is based in AUS which slows down the approval processes. AUS mgmt downplays the requests of its US regulators and staff members.

    Advice to Management

    Create an atmosphere where the AUS mgmt staff willing to listen to its US based employees and to make needed changes to better its US based business.

    Pros

    As a company, the culture is developing in a positive way. Corporate outings are fun and well considered, generally

    Cons

    All of the funds are spent on development and IT teams. Finance/accounting teams are run by a team of long-standing bullies; meaning that you will watch your team disintegrate due to mistreatment from the uppers even while you try to protect and encourage your staff. At no point should upper management say out loud that they need lower level staff relocated away from their office proximity because 'they can only be surrounded by the very best talent'. We are (or should be) a team where all are appreciated for their contribution. Just a single example.

    Advice to Management

    A professional management group does not run their team like a high school cheer team.

    Pros

    Friendly co workers, management all have superiority complex.

    Management loves to play with everyone's lively hood. They want to get too personally involved in your at home life. And. If you do not confirm you are made an outcast.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the people you manage positions are just as important as yours if not more.
