    I worked at SEGA of America full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    We were a small mobile game developer bought out by Sega. We had lots of creative freedom, wore many hats and were appreciated. Sega has one of the best health plans out there. Worked with a great, talented and diverse team. Middle management cared about the employees.

    Cons

    As the company grew, a few important goals and player focus dwindled. Full company layoff by Sega of Japan because of this. Language barrier in communicating from Sega of America and Sega of Japan which resulted in taking too long to resolve issues.

    Advice to Management

    Assess projects that aren't failures and only scrap what isn't working; not the whole company. It is a great thing that many team members have a voice and are able to contribute in game design and play ideas; however, there is a time when management needs to make a final decision and keep continuity in a given project.

    I have been working at SEGA of America full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits Medical/Dental/Commute Benefit 401K matching Relaxed atmosphere Helpful people Excellent hires Great downtown location near restaurants and bars Snacks always refilled Great brand and games Culture is enormously important from CEO down People stay with SEGA and come back regularly after sojourns to other companies

    Cons

    Wi-fi can sometimes be unstable which is frustrating There could be an additional bathroom Working from home is frowned upon It's strange people feel compelled to apologize to the entire group via email when they are running late (on the other hand I guess it's nice to know if certain people are just running late).

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on culture and product development.Fix the wifi.
