    I have been working at SEGA of America

    Pros

    Big brand name, iconic IP, nice office,

    Cons

    Business down 60% since 2007, Americans treated as 3rd class, Europeans treated as 2nd class. Politics rewarded over merit.

    Advice to Management

    Top execs in Europe and Japan keep getting promoted while Americans get fired and treated badly. The wrong people are getting promoted

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at SEGA of America full-time for more 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.
