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

    Pros

    I worked at GameSpy Tech. The team were exceptionally talented, very committed and tightly-knit. Working on multiplayer gaming technologies for the top 200 games in the world was a real high.

    Cons

    It's owned by News Corp, with all the hide-bound, bureaucratic interference that implies.

    Advice to Management

    Sell GameSpy to a company that knows what to do with it.
