Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Square Enix UK full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Interesting products. Some nice people to work with.

Cons

Abusive management. No respect for the workforce. Promises by senior managers never followed through. Awful work environment and extremely low morale. I expect the London office will close before end of 2014.

Advice to Management

Act as you expect your workers to. Make an effort to leave your offices and talk to your staff.

    Pros

    Very japanese, nice people to work with. Better now that they've merged with eidos.

    Cons

    cronyism at the very top, nepotism at the very top, slow to move
    reactive rather than proactive, no idea about 'global'

    I have been working at Square Enix UK full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company has changed quite a bit from what I have heard. Used to be only a publishing arm for Japan but now the group is creating and publishing their own products in the digital space. Huge growth in the past couple of months.

    Cons

    A ton of meetings. Sometimes it feels like very little is accomplished in the meetings as many are update meetings and not very action oriented.

    Advice to Management

    Allow people to continue to grow creatively. Encourage learning. Continue the team building events, and continue to give employees input to the games you are creating. Empower employees to succeed.
