    I worked at Rockstar Games

    Pros

    * If you like "challenging" and don't have a life- this place is for you. * Projects are great and most of the time there is so much pressure you can get away with adding your input.

    Cons

    * This place is a real drag on your health, confidence and personal life. * You can like it for being a real challenge but be prepared to hate what you love doing. * Half of the people don't know what they are doing, which makes it difficult to work and express yourself as a real professional. * Your chat logs are being scanned and read by live personnel and your managers in real time. Security cameras are... all over and management is known to abuse such resources. * Full-time employees get run down and pressured to work 50-80 hours on the weekly basis. People start to smoke, get fat and start loosing hair 2 months into the job. The place is really stressful.

    Advice to Management

    * Increase professionalism by hiring better / more skilled employees. * Replace half the management with new personnel to create better communication and healthy competition amongst the team members. * Hire more to take the stress off work. * Encourage a healthy life style.

    I have been working at Rockstar Games for less than a year

    Pros

    one of the best things i found was the fact that just working with the company was cool but also meeting new people and seeing what the game industry was like.

    Cons

    one of the downsides if the competition company's give you bull and long hours.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to really make some money in the gaming industry you want a v.r game but not only that you want to survey the entire game population if you can. i have motive here with this i really live in the ghetto's and i know how to make your company badass. i mean legit what if some one had 3 good ideas for you just to start and you could get millions of fans and also get high quality in gaming for rockstar... beyond the red dead series. just ask me my name is justin i have surveyed a entire area in phoenix az, just for some advice to you..free of charge. i always just wanted a chance to help out the game company i like best.
