I worked at GREE International Entertainment as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

I was lucky to be on a fun and talented team.
 - There are quality people
 - Some good perks, such as food area
 - Working on games millions of people play

Cons

Not all the teams have a good culture, and things can be very disorganized
 - Some employees noticeably seem like they don't want to be there
 - HR can take days (and multiple reminders) to fulfill simple requests

Advice to Management

More autonomy from Japan if it would speed things up.

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Great perks, benefits and salaries
    (Some) Great people to work with

    Cons

    The company has completely changed since the Funzio acquisition. Former employees are leaving in droves, and the new management doesn't seem to care. If you're an engineer, don't expect to have a solid set of specifications to implement on. It's often at the whim of a product manager who just wants to maximize how much money the company can squeeze from users. The work is monotonous and extremely tedious. It often feels like you're part of an assembly line rather than a "gaming" company.

    Advice to Management

    Try to fix your culture first to keep your good people there. Then try to actually innovate on your products instead of recycling the same things over and over again.
