    I have been working at SEGA of America

    Pros

    SEGA was one of the industry's greats and the brand still has some residual value- if nothing else it looks good on the resume to non-industry folk. Opportunity to cover lost of ground quit quickly due to small size of company. Nice office and decent location.

    Cons

    Generally poor product and poor attitude to product makes. Having the US team report to the European office as a territory is just... weird. A little slow on trends like DLC, mobile and casual gaming. Horribly understaffed.

    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.
