Pros

Talented and passionate individuals, great benefits, all types of people are accepted here.

Cons

Exec management seems to react and make decisions out of excitement or passion, not always what's most rational and truly best for business and health of the organization.

Advice to Management

I wonder how differently the company could operate if we weren't in blind silos. We pit studios against one another instead of building relationships between them. We could consider streamlining some of our core tech functions instead of establishing multiple fascets that try to out-do each other.

    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.
