Compensation

Cons

Lack of "real" senior strategic vision.
HUGE compensation gap between execs and VPs and Director.
Lack of inductry visionaries.
Removed from industry because of location.

Advice to Management

Fire 2 of the 6 partners (the ones that are never here), This company needs more indians and less Chiefs. Having execs that don't even have a permanent residence in Austin is demoralizing, specially when they make insane amounts of money.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    No dress code
    New management making better decisions
    Ping Pong ladder tournaments weekly. Even the execs play
    Hard work is now recognized and rewarded

    Cons

    No clear vision of the future of the company from upper management
    Cost cutting started to get irritating, hard to fund projects or back-fill needed positions

    Advice to Management

    Keep making good financial decisions, however, you need to figure out how to hold on the the remaining talent... And perhaps even attract some new talent? The stock has gone up since all the cost cutting, but without talented employees you won't have a product to sell.

    Pros

    Fast Paced environment. Company Barbeque's. Fun and exciting projects. Co-workers are fun, friendly, and intelligent.

    Cons

    Company seems to spread itself thin in new product development. While this can be attributed to the industry's demands, it would be nice to see growth in the use of products already in the market.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on acquiring/developing new game titles to expand our selection in current markets. Seek out additional markets that can utilize our existing products.
