    I worked at CryptoLogic full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good company to start your career as a web designer/developer.

    Cons

    Politics. The team is very small and you will be watched closely. The mentality is we know better then you. Can not grow much, just collect some experience for the resume and move forward.

    Advice to Management

    Try to motivate talented people, every one will benefit.

    Pros

    There are some opportunities to develop your skills, but it's not an encouraging environment

    Cons

    Lack of company direction. Too much political crap and questionable decisions to keep a company running efficiently.

    Bad product design and lack of tools for customer support

    Advice to Management

    When I worked there, product managers were at the top of the management tree and made a large number of conflicting decisions for each of their product lines. Product managers should not have direct control over the direction of the organization because it dilutes the focus of the organization.

    Pros

    Gain a lot of experience fast. Competent people who need to gain experience will have no trouble getting this, as you'll have to cover for the myriad of patronage workers employed here.

    Cons

    Incompetent management; little recognition of workers in the "trenches"; high levels of patronage and a top heavy organizational structure.

    Advice to Management

    Half of them need to disappear (though since I've worked there it looks like they've taken steps).

    Pros

    At this time there aren't any good points unless you are being paid well for your job.

    Cons

    Management in incompetent and there is significant political infighting amongst management. Competent employees are ostracized alienated and undermined.

    Advice to Management

    For Cryptologic to survive management needs to be restructured and management needs to be evaluated on competencies and they should stop hiring incompetent friends. Favourtism and double standards needs to be curtailed for friends. The incompetent people blame anyone else they can for their mistakes and there is no investigation of the real causes or failures.
