Pros

The games are interesting and the game teams are talented

Cons

The people who fund Gazillion have spent years wasting funding and pushing their corporate agenda instead of hiring talented management and letting them make good games. Now that they are helmed by an industry veteran ( John Needham) I'm cautiously optimistic, but I think it's probably too little too late.

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

    Pros

    Plenty of snacks and soda.

    Half the company are good people to work with.

    Doesn't feel like a cube farm despite long hours.

    Cons

    Mandatory OT every week to hit release schedule that never lets up.

    Pay hasn't kept up with the rest of the industry especially in the area.

    Business tactics are a little shady.

    Management either absent or clueless to the day to the day.

    Don't really feel valued here.

    No singular vision to follow so workflow is chaotic.

    While half the company are solid people it's like kindergarten with the other half.

    There's a lot of cliques here and if you run afoul of somebody you're on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what's going on around you and respect that you're running people into the ground with no light at the end of the tunnel to make up for it.
