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.

    I have been working at Rocket Gaming Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Overall friendly atmosphere
    - Owner is very passionate about his company
    - VPs genuinely care about the product and the customers

    Cons

    - Technologically about 5 years behind industry standards
    - Cost cutting has cut deep into compensation packages
    - Several lay off sessions that decrease overall morale
    - Inability to allow enough time to create a quality product, too much effort is put into getting something out the door to achieve an impossible date set by upper management on what seems to be a whim without much feedback from the teams creating the product itself

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the breadth of product, increase the quality of the newly focused product and focus on the increasing the overall morale of the people working for the company.
