Pros

T2 is a decent place to work and has a casual atmosphere so you can wear basically whatever you'd like to work (within the proper limits), the people here are nice to work with, the location is good (in NoHo), and the opportunity for advancement has been good depending on what department you are in.

Cons

Although career advancement has been good, I feel that this may taper off for now. The company tends to hire management that may be unnecessary and usually has a disparate impact on the rest of the departments. Also management could use some developing to learn how to better coach and create career paths.

Advice to Management

Take the time to meet with employees of all levels to really assess what needs the company has. The company could be more efficient and hiring all the extras isn't really necessary.

    Pros

    Hey, It is a video game company. But the perks were not what you would expect. It is an extremely fast paced environment and you will learn new things very quickly.

    Cons

    The big perks are directed to the developers and there is a big rift between the development houses and the rest of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Since there has been a change in leadership things have been better. Keep up the good work, know who is in the trenches working for you. They can help make it a better place.

    Pros

    Very interesting industry. Great products. Very nice people at middle management level and below.

    Cons

    Grueling hours and no respect for work-life balance. Sr Management is more concerned with their personal bottom line than with grooming and furthering growth of their employees. Head of HR does not care about people and runs the entire group without personal touch. If you are below Director, you are not valued.

    Advice to Management

    Show more of an interest in the professional development of your team and they will reward you with the kind of results you are looking for. Get rid of the churn-and-burn mentality and treat everyone with respect and recognition for the work that they do.
