I have been working at MZ full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The flat organization makes it very easy for employees to make an impact every day. I love coming to work at a place that is pushing the envelope on game design and WILL be the gold standard of not just mobile gaming, but the game industry in general.

Cons

Being innovative takes hard work and some sacrifice. Working here is not for the timid or those not interested in putting in the time to win.

Advice to Management

Try to work on getting the hours to those of a normal company.

    Pros

    Innovative work environment that continually pushes the envelope to anticipate and deliver what the customer wants and needs. Its very exciting times here with executive management having a very strategic long term goal within this rapidly growing industry.

    Cons

    This company is not for everyone. Dedicated and passionate people who love video games and working are best suited to thrive in this environment.

    I have been working at MZ as a contractor

    Pros

    Huge variety of career opporuntities. Casual work environment with cool people. The projects are fun especially seeing the creative side work. The tech the company is working on is very exciting and could be industry changing.

    Cons

    The hard work can hit morale some days. The company has exciting secret projects but it would be nice for all employees at least to know where the company his headed.

    Advice to Management

    Ask for feedback and listen to employee concerns. Maybe all hands can have an open mic for questions.
