    Pros

    global company. opportunity to work with a geographically-dispersed team. good pay if you ask for it. excitement of working for a game company.

    Cons

    management of relationship with contractor work force is not done well. slow progress on projects because of size of company.

    Advice to Management

    figure out a way to retain more of your talent. high turnover due to high percentage of workforce being contractors causes knowledge progression and retention very difficult here.
