I have been working at GREE International Entertainment full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great , bright , smart people
Fast paced, hot industry , leader n mobile space
Lovely China Basin offices
Decent perks and overall benefits

Cons

Culture
Lack of clarity of vision or communication from exec mgt about where the company is headed beyond the next acquisition
HQ is in Tokyo, autonomy for the US office is hard won

Advice to Management

One size fits all approach does not work. This is US not Japan. Use the expertise in your local markets, these people know what they're doing. They have deep understanding of the business. Listen to them. Exec Mgt often seems detached from rest of personnel and disconnected. Pay attention to the feedback that your employees are giving you and you might stem the flow of people who are leaving daily.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at GREE International Entertainment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -The work environment is clean
    -Always feeding you (Not the best food)
    -Company has lots of money

    Cons

    -Terrible management throughout the organization
    -Zero accountability by anyone
    -Zero culture
    -Zero respect to the employees

    Advice to Management

    -Learn to listen to your employees and stop treating them like slave workers
    -Treat each employee like they matter and make decisions instead of dancing around with your head cutoff.

    You might stop the enormous outflow of employees leaving Gree.

    I have been working at GREE International Entertainment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A leader in the game industry, particularly mobile free to play games where the space is going. Great people who are passionate about what they do make coming to work lots of fun. Great perks and great location.

    Cons

    Hardcore environment, if you want an 'easy job' this isn't the place for you (most here actually think that's a pro but prob not for everyone). Still trying to find it's a identity as a young global company. Can be tough for some people to operate in that environment of ambiguity.
