Pros

It's a 9-5 job. If you enjoy being in the same position as you were a year ago no matter how hard you try then this is the job for you. Also there is no way you'll be demoted or fired no matter how little you try either.

Cons

No raises, bonuses, or any benefit increase in the past 4 years for anybody who wasn't a manager. Getting a promotion meant doing more work for the same pay forever.
Management would change titles and positions every couple of months but in the end it was always the same self-congratulating people with poor management skills. The work environment was extremely political and petty.
The engineering managers were not experienced managers and not experienced programmers, so trying to get through to them with sound software engineering advice was like talking to a brick wall.

Advice to Management

If you expect your workers to be passionate then put that same passion back into them. And they are professionals for a reason. You should listen to their advice and not shrug it off.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Rocket Gaming Systems full-time

    Pros

    Good people. Loads of time off and holidays. Flexible. In theory, a good product line. Owner is a very hard worker.

    Cons

    Old equipment. No budgeting process at all. Sr. Management very weak. Layoffs this year due to major project being way behind and extremely over budget. So workers were let go, while managers and executives in charge let off completely unscathed. Same Executives shuffled between Sales, R&D and Operations to find "best fit"

    Advice to Management

    Update your tech. Use budgets. Clear out some Sr. Management.
