I worked at Aeria Games full-time (Less than a year)

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Colleagues were excellent some of them. Very international. Environment flexible which leads to lazyness in my opinion

    Cons

    No career opportunities in marketing. Career perspective of any position was to name you senior even if there is no such position in the job market

    Pros

    1) You learn lots here, it is a great springboard. You get to work with all types of things that, at other companies, you would never get to work at. Very impressive to put on your resume (this in and of itself balances out like 5 cons below).

    2) You will stay busy, not sure if it's always a pro for people but I like being busy rather than bored.

    3) Great people to work with, although some people are obviously schmoozers and they don't know anything about anything. Nevertheless they are still fun people to be around.

    4) Cute and small scaled company events

    Cons

    1) Management has a "my way or the highway" mentality. That's a horrible mentality to be holding when you are running a company.

    2) VERY hard to feel valued at the company. They don't compensate you enough, treat you poorly, keep milking you for more work, heck sometimes your boss doesn't even know what exactly you do! That's the ultimate form of disrespect.

    3) Long work hours (it's really tough to keep it down under 9 hrs per day). People have the mentality that you have to work more and more and more to be recognized. But that never really happens (the recognition).

    4) Work distributed unevenly, lots of schmoozers will do half the amount of work than you do and get recognized twice as much.

    5) Extremely poor products, the games they keep getting are not sustainable and will not help the company grow at all.

    6) Management does not have an understanding of the gaming industry as much as I would like. They do not understand the concept of "getting new players" and consistently jeopardizes their own user base by advertising new games to their existing new user base.

    7) If you are a guy, you will be recognized more than a girl doing the same position. VERY chauvinistic.

    8) Lots of people coming and leaving. Makes for knowledge passing down to be hard and efficient work to be tough. Management doesn't know who are the good ones from the bad ones, they let all the good ones leave for better opportunities and keep giving job offers to the bad ones. Result = a company full of dumb people who do not know what they are doing.

    9) If you want to work for the market leader, this is not the place. This company is not the market leader, it is usually two years late to everything (new ideas/trends).

    Advice to Management

    Read all my Cons.

    Senior Management needs to be open to new ideas, new innovative technology, and explore it when the lower employees bring it to your attention. Otherwise, all of the "new" things you come up with are going to be two years old but the time you realize it exists. You guys need to weed out the bad employees from the good ones and try really hard to keep the good ones. You need to be not so cheap and at least give competitive salary to the people who really deserve it. Some people in the company are paid way more than they deserve, some departments don't do anything yet they are getting way overpaid. Think of cutting your expenses through this way, and redistributing this money to the smart people who actually deserve it.

    Senior Management needs to be also open to criticism and not always have that mentality that anything they say goes. They really don't have much knowledge of the gaming industry, not enough to make large scale decisions in regards to marketing or which games they sign. Please stop being so stubborn. Many employees are already feeling like they are on a sinking ship.
